I have spent 21 years in the classroom - the first 8 years in the United Kingdom, (the London Borough of Havering) teaching both key stage one and 2, and the next 13 years in North Carolina, my adopted home!
Hands-on, manipulative fun, games, and glitter! I love to create crafts to go alongside ELA and Math.
