I teach first grade at an American School in Casablanca, Morocco. Previously, I taught all grade levels in the computer lab at a Title I school in Georgia. I have also taught 3rd grade for 4 years.
I student-taught in 3rd grade and Kindergartden. I taught in a low-income school where my students need to look at every problem from 12 different angles. Now I teach in a classroom where almost every student is an English Language Learner. Although it is challenging, it is also incredibly rewarding.
