The Caught in the Middle Shop is for upper elementary and middle school classrooms, and features mainly math and science lessons and activities. Now in my 16th year teaching, I enjoy the creative outlet that putting together products provides me. I've worked with a variety of different student populations including Title I, ELL, SpEd, and gifted, and have spent time teaching in primary, intermediate, and junior high classrooms.
