I have been teaching since 1999, all in the lower elementary levels. I love Kindergarten and First grade. I also spent 4 years as an Elementary Principal. So I really appreciate knowing what happens on "the other side" as well.
I feel that children really need to be engaged in their learning. Long gone are the days when the teacher stands and lectures the students. They need to be moving, doing, singing, acting, and just plain ol' having fun. But, in the midst of all of this, I still run and very organized and controlled classroom environment. I would consider parent communication and classroom management my forte!
