First grade is such a special time in a child's life when they are soaking in new experiences, acquiring important knowledge daily, and learning how to have positive social interactions with other children. My joy in teaching is found in building positive relationships with my students and seeing their love for learning flourish with engagement and action-based learning in the classroom.
