I have been teaching in Ontario, Canada for the past 16 years. I have worked in all grades from Junior Kindergarten through to Grade 8, but I have spent most of my time teaching grades 2, 3, or 4. Grade 4 is my passion. I absolutely love that age of student and the curriculum for that grade. I love that they are gaining more independence, demonstrating individuality, and still love their teacher. I have been married to my Sweetheart for 14 years. We have 3 beautiful cats. I love to teach, run, and read (and now blog)!
