Hi, I am Corey Green, a National Board Certified Teacher with a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education.
I have taught grades 3-8 and I have worked with students in grades K-12. My students have had a range of special needs: ELL, ESL, Special Education, and Gifted. I really love teaching English Language Learners. It’s very special to me because I know what it’s like to struggle to learn a new language and a new lifestyle. My dad took my family along for his two-year Air Force posting in Italy when I was in sixth grade.
This blog presents views on how kids really act, think and learn in today’s classrooms. I hope we can share ideas and tips to help kids thrive in the few years that they spend in elementary classrooms. You will see that I have a special place in my heart for first-year teachers and special area teachers–librarians and teachers of music, PE and art. I try to offer plenty of tips for first-year teachers and plenty of ways for classroom teachers to show appreciation for special area teachers.
You will also find links and posts about my award-winning multiplication products. Best Multiplication Workbook EVER! is a complete curriculum from learning times tables through standardized test mastery. It features scaffolded learning, cumulative review, real-life word problems, and detailed teaching guides. Best Multiplication Songs EVER! help kids learn their times tables as easily as they learned their A-B-Cs. The songs work like magic for grades 2 to 4; they are remedial for grades 5 & 6. My students loved using both products to help them master their basic facts and develop problem-solving skills. Your students will, too.
