Teaching for over seventeen years, and I still love this crazy profession! I have taught Kindergarten, Third Grade, Fourth Grade, Fifth Grade, and a few combos in between.
My style changes with each class. I am always looking for new ways to reach my students. Straightfoward, yet trying to encourage independent learning and critical thinking skills would best describe my philosphy.
