This is my 18th year of teaching. I have taught 8 years in Kindergarten, 3 years in Pre-K, 5 years in First Grade, and I'm going into my 2nd year of Second Grade. Wow! I can't believe I'm almost to that 20 year mark! I began teaching in Texas over 20 years ago as a Bilingual Education Teacher (2 years in 1st Grade, and 1 year in Pre-Kindergarten). When my family moved to Colorado, I taught at my children's private pre-school for 2 years. Once we moved to Florida, I became a stay at home mom (again...I had taken some time off in Texas) until our 3rd child went to Kindergarten. That's when I became a Kindergarten teacher, and I loved teaching K for 8 years! I've now taught First Grade in Florida for three years, and now I'm in my second year of Second Grade... even so, I'll still keep making things for my Kindergarten and First Grade friends! We now have 4 children, and I'm always trying to balance between being a mom and being a teacher! Freebies & Funnies at my blog,Fairy Tales And Fiction By 2!
Make it fun! ....And remember: EVERYONE makes mistakes!
