I've had the joy of teaching elementary school for 9 years. In that time, I've taught pre-k, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades. Regardless of age level, I've watched students flourish and learn, while receiving praise from parents for the activities I plan that allow for exploration, movement, and meaningful learning.
Students learn best when they're up and moving, creating, and building understanding through the experiential and constructivist models.
I have served as team leader for my grade level, as well as served as a mentor for first-year teachers. It's been my pleasure to work as the cooperating teacher for multiple student teachers.
