My teaching degree is in Early Childhood Education, and I've been teaching for 5 years, and have taught second grade for 4 of those! I love my district and most of all, my students. Before teaching, I worked for a publishing company for a couple of years, which was valuable, business-world experience, and gave me a great perspective on what the parents of my students are up to while we're in school all day!
I'm active! I don't believe in making kids sit and listen for longer than they can handle, and at the ages I teach, that's only 7-10 minutes. So we do a lot of center-based learning, tons of mini-lessons, lots of sharing, and plenty of movement.
None yet! Aside from speaking at my graduation. Hopefully someday!
I went to Tufts University for my undergraduate degree (English and Child Development) and then worked for a publisher for a few years. By then, I knew I had to get back in the classroom, and got my graduate degree from Lesley University.
I love family, friends, cooking, golf, games, and all the fun that goes with them! Oh, and I love my job. :)
