I have been teaching for thirteen years. I've spent most of my time in 3rd grade with a few years in 4th sprinkled somewhere in the middle. I have worked with gifted and inclusion students for the last 6 years. Each day brings its own challenges, but the rewards are immeasurable!
There are two rules in our room: 1. Be kind. 2. Work hard. In the words of my friend Rafe, "If I expect my students to follow these rules, I need to be the kindest and hardest working person they know." I strive every day to make sure our room is full of kind, hard-working people. :)
The love notes and pictures that decorate my door are the best awards to ever come across my desk. :)
