I started teaching first grade in 2004. After spending 9 years in first grade, I transferred to a new school and began teaching 3rd grade. I just finished my 5th year in 3rd and I LOVE it!
Get in there and get down and dirty! I do guided reading and workstations. I believe in differentiated instruction, writing workshop, conferencing, building relationships with students and their families, sitting in the floor with the kids and making a big ole' mess during math, and walking around barefoot in the classroom. If the kids want to be barefoot...they can, too! If you're comfortable, you learn! Let's do it!

I create so many things for my own classroom that I decided to start putting some of them here on TPT to help fund my daughter's venture into competitive dance. :-)
