I have been teaching for 20 years, mainly 1st and 2nd grade. This age is so much fun. It is great to see the amount of growth that happens during these younger years.
I teach at a H.E.T. (highly effective teaching) and project-based learning school. I try to integrate our curriculum whenever I can, yet still teach the standards. I use brain-compatible strategies and try to include a variety of multiple intelligences in my activities.
