TEACHING EXPERIENCE

It's hard to believe, but I've been teaching 1st grade for over 18 years! Time sure does fly when you're having fun, and I have loved growing and learning with each and every class I've known. There's no grade I'd rather teach!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to keep my routines and structures as consistent as possible with my kiddos. Each year it becomes more and more important for the children to know what to expect as they walk through that door each morning. I try to develop and maintain the same warm and welcoming environment each day. Firsties also love movement, music, and lots of hands-on timeā€¦I do my best to make the day a well-balanced mix for my young learners.
