I have taught 1st grade for 4 years and believe it is the "reading grade." I know how important it is for a child to be reading on level when they leave 1st grade and how it will effect them throughout their academic life. This year I am teaching kindergarden. I am a very patient teacher. I have a great love for teaching reading and phonics. Although, I am familiar with all elementary school state standards as a public school teacher, and would be comfortable teaching all subjects. My greatest ability and passion is teaching reading.
