I have spent most of my years teaching in the primary grades including 1st and 2nd grade. I love teaching the littles ones and I feel so rewarded each day when I go home knowing I taught them something new or impacted their life in some way.
I'm a hands on learner myself and love to create activities where my kids are manipulating and trying things out themselves.
I have 8 years of teaching experience in grades 1st and 2nd grades.
