Hi,
I found you on the TPT forum in the group for newbies. I am your newest follower. Please checkout my store and Facebook page when you get a chance! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Smart-Board-Lessons/459295564182287
It is taking me a long time to get products out there and I do not have a family to take care of any longer. But it is fun and I have learned a lot of things reading the forum. I learned about starting work in the PowerPoint first. I learned I had to make things cute...lol. One of the biggest things I learned is, if the answer is not on the forum, it is probably in a you tube video. Good Luck and I look forward to following you and wish you the best!
Thank you!

I previously told you that I purchased the 10-frames but couldn't find the download but I just did. But now I have another question. I noticed that there are several blank ones that are the same and I was wondering the reason for multiples of them since I will just be copying them for my students. Maybe I missed an explanation in your description. Thanks, Carla

Hi, I enjoyed your product. I was able to confidently give it a perfect rating. Thanks for sharing!

I just listed a new type of Sight Word PowerPoint for Kindergarten and First Grade. It is listed under First 50 Sight Words PowerPoint. It includes the words in isolation and within the context of sentences with picture support. I wondered if you might consider taking a look at the free 4 slide preview to see if it might be something you could use. Thanks! Anne Gardner

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a 22-year veteran teacher, always in GRADE 1 ! I have taught at a Title 1 school for most of my career. I have been a district laison teacher, a BTSA support provider, a master teacher for new teachers, and a site lead teacher for many years. I have a reading specialist certificate, and currently have 18 EL students ( of 31) in my class.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style has developed over the years. I like a structured class, where my students feel respected and free to make choices. I enjoy the "buzz" of learning discussions within the classroom.My favorite time of the day, is when we come to the "reading table" to "show off". Show me what you know! I play music, we chant, we dance, and we laugh. I like to have educational games available for both non-readers and gifted students. I also hold my students accountable for their learning. I try to instill in them the love of LEARNING for a lifetime.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was our district's laison resource teacher for a year during curriculum adoption. I helped train EVERY elementary teacher in our district. A HUGE honor!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I entered the profession late, after having 3 boys at home and a daughter on the way. My highest honor was earning my teaching credential after 3 1/2 years of night school. The degree was a collaborative effort between my husband, my family & myself. I later earned my Reading Certificate, after another stint at night school. I LOVE to learn!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

As a Title 1 teacher, I have been trained in MANY excellent programs. GLAD, Dataworks, RTI, Guided Reading, AR, are just a few. All professional trainings make us the teachers we are today. We take a little bit of this, and a little bit of that, and combine to create an environment where we laugh and want to learn, for a lifetime!
