TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For 10 years I taught 3rd - 5th grade. I loved teaching one class all day. Now in my 11th year I've changed positions and am the gifted math teacher. So I get to spend my day focused on math with 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade. I love working with children on problem solving and critical thinking.
