I have 11 years experience teaching second grade, first grade, and Kindergarten. My favorite part of teaching is building a bond with each of my students and watching them grow into successful learners.
I differentiate my curriculum to meet the needs of every student. I love making fun and engaging activities for my students to use in my classroom! Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. -- Benjamin Franklin
My thesis on increasing reading comprehension and motivation through the use of the multiple intelligence theory was published in a professional online journal in 2006.
I currently have a Master's degree in education and received my gifted endorsement.
I love finding and creating new strategies to use in my classroom! Visit my blog at Sandyslearningreef.blogspot.com for more fun ideas and freebies!
