I've taught 20 years grades in grades 3-5 and Early Intervention Program in Public School. I currently teach my favorite of all grades...5th grade! Creating materials for my classroom is a passion for me and I love sharing it all here on TpT! Teaching4Real Pinterest Boards! Teaching4Real Facebook!
I am definitely a hands-on teacher! I believe in cooperative learning where students gain knowledge from their classmates and share. Any time I can integrate technology into my lessons I will. I frequently use my Smartboard, iPad, and classroom computers for interactive learning to help my student meet technology standards. No matter what, students have to be actively engaged in meaningful activities. That is my goal every day! :)
