In My Classroom

With 9 years of classroom experience and plenty of time spent homeschooling my personal children, I have found that teachers of all kinds learn best from each other. By seeing what is going on in other people's classrooms, hearing what works and doesn't work for them, and finding those genius "Why didn't I think of that?" tips, we all become better teachers.  So, I try to regularly share what I am doing with my kids - in and out of the classroom.  Here are some of the most popular posts in this series:
