I have taught for nearly 30 years - from PreK - 2nd Grade, with most of my experience in second grade. And I have loved it!
My classroom has always been a busy place - with much movement and conversation, as I believe that is the way that young children learn the best. Hands on learning and discovery are a priority here!
