In my first year of teaching (2012-2013) I taught part time in a fourth grade classroom. My focus was language and writing. I am now in my second year of teaching second grade full time. I really enjoy the age group!
I have used Daily Five for both years in second grade and could not imagine teaching any other way! It truly helps students become passionate readers and writers. Although whole group learning is important, I choose to teach in small groups as much as possible. I find I am better able to cater to each student's learning style.
Yet to be added
I attended Kaskaskia College for two years, then transferred to Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville.
This summer I will be traveling to Uganda to teach in a primary school for nine weeks! I am very excited!
