The past six years I have taught 5th grade. This year, I am teaching 6th grade Earth science :)
In a typical school day, my students talk more than I do! I love having them work together in cooperative learning groups and I always try to have them working on something hands-on.
5th Grade Team Leader, Science Teacher Leader
I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in education from the University of Florida. Go Gators! :)
