I just finished my second year teaching first grade in a charter school. Before that I was a substitute teacher in 4 different school districts.
I believe that centers should be fun, so students don't know that they are learning. :) I try to do a mixture of whole group lessons and activities and centers each day, along with trying to work with all different types of learning styles.
Nominated for Teacher of the Year for the 2014-2015 school year.
I have a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. I am currently working on my Masters in Early Childhood Education with a gifted endorsement. :)
I have known since 2nd grade that I wanted to be a teacher. As I have grown up, I've known that it was what I was put on this Earth to do. I love figuring out how to help students learn best and the light bulbs that I see daily along with the excitement of when a student understands something is what I strive for every day.
