This is my thirteenth year of teaching. I've taught kindergarten for four years and 3rd grade for 8 years.
It all starts with a relationship with the students. Hands on activities that peaks children's interest is a daily event. All children learn by hearing, seeing, saying and doing, sometimes by tasting and smelling.
