This is my tenth year teaching. I taught first grade for two years in a Christian school in NH. I taught for four years in Baltimore City in grades first, second, and fifth. For two years I taught first grade in a Maryland suburb. Last year I made the jump to fourth grade and teaching math, science, and social studies. This coming year, I will be teaching third grade! It sure has been a fun ride and I am learning a lot about myself and teaching everyday!
I believe in teaching to all learning styles throughout my lessons. I like using manipulatives, hands on activities, and technology. Our school is a STEM school so I am working on integrating more STEM concepts through the content areas.
