I taught PreK for two years then moved up to 2nd grade! I've been there for 4 years, and it's my happy place!!
In one phrase - ever-evolving! :o) I love teaching in small groups and utilizing the Daily 5 in my classroom. I love anything that will get my munchkins up and active, and I'm always looking for ways to improve how I reach my students.

I'm a 20-something Connecticut girl, born and bread with teaching in my blood! I'm a wanna-be professional Pinterest-er, sushi-enthusiast and lover of Target. When I'm not teaching or doing something teaching-related, I love adventuring with my friends, reading, trying my hand at photography, taking Zumba (R) Fitness classes, finding other fun ways to trick myself into exercising and shopping!
