I have taught ESE, Second, Third, and have been teaching high-achieving and gifted first grade classes for the past 10 years. I love working with my first grade team. We are awesome together!
I am a big believer in hands-on, small group cooperative learning groups. I believe in allowing my students to take charge of their own learning with guidance from me.
