I am currently in my 11th year of teaching first grade! I have loved every second of it and there is nothing I'd rather do!
My teaching style is an organized, but laid back style. I love using centers, graphics, colors, and technology in my classroom. Most of the time I introduce a new standard using my Activboard, transition into centers that have games or activities that focus on that standard, and then have my students work on transferring information learned onto worksheets that support that standard. I truly believe that learning should be fun!
2009 - Teacher of the Year for Poplar Road Elementary School
I graduated with my BS in Early Childhood Education from Point University in 2002. I graduated with my MEd from Troy University in 2010.
I live in Georgia and my lessons are centered around the Common Core Standards. We are also using Daily 5, CAFE Reading, & Orton-Gillingham this year. My goal is to create things supporting these 3 areas and as often as possible integrate science, social studies, seasons, or things that are interesting in with these areas. Please visit my blog at www.1stgradefantabulous.blogspot.com If at any time you are looking for something specific, then email me at PRESRoom116@gmail.com. I am willing to try anything & do my best to adjust things I've created when needed :)
