I have taught 8 years of kindergarten, 1 year of first grade and 1 year of second grade. I am now teaching kindergarten again and hope to stay here for a while!!
I teach in VA using the state SOLs. For math, I follow Debbie Diller's philosophy of Math Work Stations. For reading, I do small group guided reading groups while the students work independently on literacy centers.
Taught 10 years in my county
I went to Longwood University and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies with a teaching license in K-6.
I love spending time with my husband (who is a 5th grade teacher), our daughter who is 5 and our Boxer.
