I am a 32 year veteran teacher. I started my teaching career as a Kindergarten teacher and then taught K-6th special education. For the last twelve years of my career I taught 1st grade. I truly miss teaching, and thought this site would allow me to use my creative ideas and some of the materials I had made throughout the years. I am currently coaching new teachers and helping them with classroom activities, behavior and curriculum. It allows me to be with kids and help others navigate this career.
I believe all students can learn and incorporate a hands on approach to learning that focuses on cross curricular activities.
