I am entering my 30th year of teaching. I've taught first grade for 12 years and have 17 years of experience in second grade. I am trained in Reading Recovery. I've presented at multiple national conventions and worked as a trainer for state and local education agencies.
I believe lessons should be relevant and engaging with hands-on activities and integration of subject areas.
