TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Kindergarten for 7 years. My "partner in crime" has taught 8th grade Language Arts for 12 years, 2nd grade for 2 years, and is currently in 5th grade. Together, we love brainstorming hands-on activities that will allow our students to experience their learning, which makes it much more powerful!
