I have been in the teaching profession for 35 years. I have taught in both public schools and private, in grades 1 through 6. I have spent the last 29 years teaching second grade! I have just completed my masters degree in special education.
Differentiation is the best way to describe my style. When you come into my classroom you will see lots of constructive and productive activity going on all around. I love the Daily 5 and the use of centers to differentiate learning.
