I retired during the Pandemic from teaching. For over 20 years, I taught grades 1-5 (but mostly third grade) at Peabody School. There, I taught all academic subjects and also had a weekly Philosophy class and a daily Mindfulness session. Prior to becoming a classroom teacher, I taught Drama and I was a Gifted Resource teacher in Albemarle County. Since I retired, I've been volunteering and tutoring--mainly math and Adult Literacy, but I miss working with groups; I think we all learn best when we collaborate and build off each others' ideas.
