Welcome to my 3rd grade classroom. I have been a special education teacher in the Buffalo district for the past 16 years. Over those years, I have taught kindergarten through 6th grade. It's amazing to watch how much the kids grow in their year with my (both academically as well as physically).
Aside from being a teacher, I am also a mother to three (not so little) kids. My two oldest children are currently in college, both of which are pursuing degrees and education. My oldest son is going for Special Education with a concentration in History and my daughter is going for Elementary Education. My youngest is currently a junior in high school, and he has already made his intentions known that he too will be attending college to become a teacher as well.
I use ClassDojo as a classroom management system. It is a very useful (and free) app that you can easily download on your phone. ClassDojo is a great tool to keeping contact with myself and my aide Miss Cruz. Most of my parents are currently in communication with me on ClassDojo.
