Secret Admirer Clue #2

The person I admire has taught a variety of grade levels.  She has taught from Pre K to 4th grade.  I have also taught a variety of grade levels;

1st grade (4 years)

2nd grade (3 years)

5th grade (1 year)


6th grade (2 years)


I went through a phase where I thought I should be well-rounded, but I have learned that I don't need to be well-rounded.  I need to teach tiny people. 

I think it's beneficial that I have taught tested grade levels in order to better understand the pressure of high-stakes testing.  I also think it was helpful to have taught both first and second grades.  It makes me a better teacher when I know how the lesson will be expanded upon in second grade.  Conversely, I am far more understanding when I teach second and realize the concept I am teaching is not really a "review" since it was a one day lesson in first grade.

Here's a sneak peek at the activity my kiddos completed.  It's a real "butts in the air" activity!
I love it!


What grades have you taught?

What's your favorite?  Why?
