I am a fourth year teacher currently teaching 1st grade in SW Florida. Our school is implementing the Leader in Me with our students. It is teaching them to be responsible for their own actions and to help others. We recently reached the status of a Lighthouse School! We also are implementing Thinking Maps to help our students structure and visualize their thinking. I love all things Disney, and my classroom is decorated with a Disney theme!
I love interactive activities that get the kiddos engaged and involved in their learning! Over the summer I attended a Kagan training and I am looking forward to implementing the structures in my classroom this year.
