More About Me!

All About Me
I was drawn to the teaching profession because I enjoy working with children. I view teaching as a constant challenge that is seldom, if ever, boring. The realization that a teacher can introduce children to new worlds of information and open up new possibilities daily was motivation in itself for me to select teaching as a profession many years ago.
 I've taught Pre-Kindergarten for 9 years, Kindergarten for 3 years, Third Grade for 1 year, First Grade for 4 years....and finally, Second Grade!   I got to loop with 12 of my 1st Grade students and I have 8 new ones.
