I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
In honor of Earth Day, some of the first grade teachers set up a school-wide book swap. Students were able to bring in books from home that they had already read and trade them with other students. What a great way to reuse books!
