I taught fourth grade for six years when I decided I needed a change of scenery. Two years ago I moved down to second grade and couldn't be happier!
I love having my kids work in groups, but I also think that students need to learn to work on their own as well. I try to mix the two so that all students benefit. I try to remember to do brain breaks throughout the day, but sometimes I get in my teaching groove and forget! I've got to get better about that. :))
I tell my students all the time that they have the "best teacher in the world!" and watch them nod their little heads! When they ask me how I managed to do something, I always reply, "I'm awesome! Haven't I told you?" :))
I have a BS degree in Elementary Education (K-8) with a minor in History. I also have my MA in Communication in Education.
I am a busy mommy to two sweet toddlers. One is 4, the other is 2. They keep me on my toes, so my store may be slow moving at first. I'm working on getting several units together at this time. I hope you enjoy my products! If you have any special requests, feel free to e-mail me!
