TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started out teaching a 4/5 combination class, and then taught 5th grade for three more years. After I had my first daughter, I started sharing a contract, jumping around from 5th grade to 3rd, then kindergarten, then 2nd. After 8 years of being "half a teacher," I'm moving to 4th grade full-time and hoping to stay put for a while!
