I spent 15 years in the classroom teaching 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. Now I am a teacher mentor working with new teachers and I love it! I love collaborative learning, a focus on standards based activities, and teaching kids to have a growth mindset - because I do!
I love to have fun with my students! So everything I do in the classroom has to have lots of movement, music, and laughter. I use Kagan all the time and I am an advocate for brain based learning strategies. I love making products that are practical and perfect for busy teachers like us!
