I'm in my third year of teaching fourth and fifth grade and have loved (almost) every minute of it! I attended undergrad at The University of Tampa and just earned my second Master's Degree (Curriculum & Instruction, Ed. Leadership) from American College of Education.
I like to serve as a facilitator in my classroom. I'll start with a quick mini-lesson in math, science, or language arts and ask the students to try it with a partner. Students are the ones doing the work - they always learn more when their hands are involved! Here are a few of my favorite classroom activities: -Around the Room questions -Rally Coach -Partner Games -Station Rotations -White board problems -Task Cards
