Welcome to the blog! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy teacher life to read my blog.
Here’s a little bit about me, Natasha Theodora, the blogger behind Ms. Natasha Theodora.
I am a current grade 1 teacher at a school in Poland. Before teaching grade 1, I taught grades 2 and 3. I have also been a math curriculum leader, math interventionist and reading interventionist. I have had the opportunity to work with amazing mentors throughout my career and now I am bringing all of my knowledge here to share with you. On this blog you will find information about comprehensive literacy, best teaching practices in math, stories from the classroom and a love for teaching.
