16 years in education, teaching grades Pre-K, K, 1 and 3. Third grade is by FAR my favorite!
I love hands on learning! My class also utilizes interactive notebooks, which I believe make note taking more interesting and meaningful. I am a history lover, and also LOVE giving my kiddos trivia tidbits about history that they can tell their parents.
Hugs from my students and hearing them say how much fun school is- that is my best award!

I am a mom to 5 kids- the oldest is a junior in college, one in high school, one in middle, one in 4th and one in 1st. Boy, boy, boy, girl, boy I LOVE to read! Adult or kid books- it doesn't matter. Books just may be one of my favorite things!
