    Hi, I am new. I am getting my masters in Elementary Ed. My undergrad degree was in Art. I worked in the advertising biz for a while and decided I wanted to teach instead. I have been going to school online for the past year and teaching preschool. Obstacles have led me to apply for elementary positions and bypass student teaching...so I was just recently hired for a second grade position at a private school. Yikes! Just wanted to introduce myself because I have been lurking for the past couple of days.

    HI!!!

    Hi Kenny2teach. Welcome to AtoZ. You will love teaching. If you can handle pre-schoolers, you will be able to handle 2nd.

    There is a ton of help, support, lesson plans (see buttons at top) and links to other resources on this site. Dig in.

    Second grade is a wonderful grade to start with. They love their teacher and think you are super!!! If you start teaching them some art lessons especially drawing you will be their hero!! In their eyes you can do no wrong. Have fun and enjoy. This is a great site for ideas!!!!
