I taught 5th grade for five years (two years in Atlanta, GA and three years near Madison, WI), taught as a substitute for two years, and recently returned to my teeny, tiny, Northern Wisconsin hometown, where I now teach 2nd grade!
Hands-on learning with a focus on integrating curriculum and technology. I use Daily 5, CAFE, Math Expressions, a version of Responsive Classroom, and TONS of awesome TpT resources.
I graduated from UW Eau Claire with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, minoring in Theater Education.
My husband and I are expecting our second child any second (okay, in a couple of weeks). I am in my second year of teaching 2nd grade in the district where I spent my K-12 years! That's a lot of seconds! :) Visit my blog @ tanyaraedotdotdot.blogspot.com, but be warned... I haven't updated it for about a year! YIKES! That's what happens when you're a full time teacher, TpT seller, pregnant mommy and wife who just moved in to a brand new construction home! Life is grand, but will it ever slow down?!? I hope to continue blogging soon - I have SO much to write about!
