I just completed my 39th year of teaching. I spent my first three years teaching First Grade then moved to Kindergarten where I spent the next 35 years. I decided to loop with my class this past year and returned to First Grade. Boy what a difference after being away for 35 years.
Love to teach using the hands on approach and hate grading stacks of papers. I feel children can learn the same skill through centers and have more fun doing it. So centers are a major part of my teaching strategies and I am always creating new ones to add to my classroom.

I am a mother of two children. A son, 28 years and a daughter 23 years. They are my best creations for sure! I am always creating new games and centers, so much my coworkers call me a workaholic. I love teaching and enjoy watching young children grow and learn. I am known as the Panda Teacher and my class is called The Panda Bears. I am looking forward to retiring in a couple of years and being able to travel and relax. Hopefully this side business will help finance those trips.
