I taught for 20 years, Prekindergarten - 3rd Grade as a classroom teacher. I have also provided both reading and math intervention for Kindergarten - 5th Grade students. I am now a retired teacher who still has a passion for helping all students be successful and wants to help teachers have more time with their friends and family.
I believe that children learn best when they are given good, clear, direct instruction, followed by time to practice with peers as well as time for independent practice. My classroom is organized in a way that makes this possible.
City View Elementary Teacher of the Year 2010, Canyon ISD
I have a bachelor's of arts degree in history with a minor in political science.
I know teachers can spend hours and hours working and still not be caught up. I love that TpT allows us to work together creating and sharing resources!
