It's so hard for me to fill this section out! Let's see, I am an elementary school teacher with 9 years of teaching under my belt. I have just finished the Endorsement Course here in Savannah, so now I have a Gifted, Reading AND a SCIENCE Endorsement! I like to think I'm a typical teacher, in that I never stop looking for things to use in class. Pinterest has become my latest addiction for these things and I started a web forum to share more, too.
