This is my 10th year teaching fourth grade. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to do what I love everyday!
In a perfect world my class would be actively engaged in problem-based, differentiated learning EVERYDAY, but I am not quite there yet (I am working on it). I believe in creating a VERY safe and loving community in which students feel comfortable taking new risks everyday. Without risk taking and making mistakes we would never learn anything. Because of this we do a lot of community building activities (books, projects, games) to encourage our class to act like a "family".
