I have spent the last 9 years of my life teaching in the same elementary school. I taught 4th grade for two years and then switched to 5th grade. I have been teaching 5th grade Gifted/ High Achieving students for the past 7 years.
I enjoy teaching through interdisciplinary units, hands-on activities, and project-based learning.
