This is my 19th year teaching! First I taught 2nd grade in French for 5 years at an immersion school then I moved to Alaska and taught 2nd grade in English for 3 years and finally I've been teaching 1st grade in English for the past 11 years.
I'm very structured and super organized! I have high expectations for my students and do all I can to help them do and be their best. I specialize in Readers' Theater, SmartBoard activities and Behavior Management.
