I have been teaching for 29 years. I've taught kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, and 7th grade. I've also worked as an Instructional Coach, Curriculum Specialist, Technology Consultant, Science Specialist, and Reading Specialist. Currently, I teach 2nd grade.
I believe in using every tool and strategy you can, to meet the needs of each student. Learning should be engaging, meaningful, interactive, hands-on, purposeful and FUN!
