I was a classroom teacher (3rd and 4th grades) for 11 years. This is my 12th year as a Title I teacher.
I use a lot of manipulatives.
I am rewarded each time my students say, "Oh, I get that!" It is also rewarding to realize that I have made a child's life better by helping them to be a better reader.
BA in Education
I drive a truck with a mobile classroom in the back. I stop at various schools, and the students who need Title I help come into the back of my truck. I plug into the school's electricity, so we can have lights, heating, air conditioning, and technology. (We have laptops and iPads for our students.) There are counters on both sides for them to work on, a white board up front, and cabinets where supplies are kept.
