I've taught 1st grade for the past 12 years and enjoyed (almost) every minute of it ; ) But this year I'm moving up to 2nd grade to see how the educational journey continues!
My teaching style is laid back and relaxed. I love to give my students a lot of choices and control over their own learning. I provide basic structure and hold my students to high expectations.
Yet to be added
Teaching is my 2nd career. In my past life, I was an accountant. After having my own children, I quickly realized that I wanted to work with kids. So I went back to school and got my master's and teaching degrees. It's the best move I've ever made!
I am a single mother of 2 amazing boys (ages 16 and 17). My oldest son has autism and I've realized the importance of modifying instructions and PATIENCE !!! I believe that I've learned as much from them as they have from me : )
