I'm on my 17th year of teaching and still loving each day! I have taught students with emotional difficulties, English for Speakers of Other Languages, and Gifted Education...all within the walls of my 4th or 5th grade general and/or self contained classroom. I am currently teaching a 4th grade cluster of the gifted and high achievers. What fun!
Whatever works! It's important to self reflect and keep our children motivated and interested in the world around them. I am always reinventing the wheel!
