I'm in my 14th year of teaching. People always ask, "What do you teach?" I always answer, "Children." I've taught children from kindergarten through fifth grade, and can honestly say that I've loved each one! Though we can try to teach subjects, lessons, or even objectives, what we all really do is love and teach children!
I love to have fun with my students, keeping them engaged through hands-on activities, singing, technology, movement, and creative arts. I tell my kiddos I'm crazy, and that they can be, too. We have tons of fun and learning in my classroom!
