Hi there! I have 41 wonderful years of teaching experience. My favorite grades have always been the primary. I have taught kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, and 3rd Grade. Loved them all!
It's all about engagement! I love to teach with hands-on, project-oriented activities. Learning should be an adventure and fun!
