I have taken a break from teaching for a few years to be a stay-at-home mom. I’m loving my new full time job, but it’s hard to be out of the classroom. I am keeping up my teaching skills by doing very small scale tutoring with just a few students in my home. This is a way for me to give them access to lessons as well as anyone else who stumbles across my blog and would like some ideas. After all, when I was in the classroom with very little time on my hands, scrounging for lesson plans and new ideas, I benefited from countless individuals who made their ideas public. Thank goodness for the internet.
