Hi,
Last year, I downloaded your GENRES powerpoint and did not use it. This year, I'd like to use it, but with modifications- however, it's SECURED, and password protected. Since I am using it with second grade, I'd like to add images/book covers to some of the genre slides and cut down on some of the quiz questions. Can you send me the modification password or an editable version? Thanks!

I have used these with the 6th graders I currently teach. The higher level students do very well on them, but they are a challenge for my lower level students. Here are some of the multiple meaning words included: might, ruler, eye, period, time, seal, crash, point, tire, and shape. We typically do 10-20 of them at a time, and about half of my class will get 100% each time.

Another question. How do you make all the magic squares? Copy/paste the images or you insert them automatically - eg. with Excel or similar program? I like your work but we have to give our children magic squares in slovenian language so we have to make our own magic square. We don't have problems with words m. squares, but with those with images we do - it takes a long time to put them right, to check if the squares are right ... Any advice will be appreciated.

Many of the graphics I buy right here on TpT! We have some fabulous artists with a lot of talent. :) Just do a search for clipart (or whatever specific artwork you are looking for) and you should find what you want. If not - head to the forums.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have PreK-6th grade experience. I have taught Kindergarten, Reading Recovery, Title I math and reading, 5th grade inclusion special education, and a multi-grade classroom of ELL students. I was also the overseer of my first school's special education department. My current position is 4th/5th/6th grade Reading/ELA and District ELA Professional Development Director. I used to teach Asian students during the evenings, weekends, and summer. Using Skype and other online tools, I have taught students from age 6-20. It was an interesting experience! http://www.eleutian.com/qualify/registers/welcome I recently started as a professor for CE4Teachers. Come check us out! http://courses.ce4teachers.com/

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style varies depending on the students in front of me. I try to use a lot of visuals, differentiated instruction, and centers whenever possible. My colleagues often joke that I have a work hard, play hard attitude. I'm the type who expects a lot of hard work from my students, but I will be the first to recognize that hard work and find a fun way to incorporate play into our day.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The South Dakota Department of Education chose me to attend a national standard setting committee in New Jersey in February 2011. A panel of roughly 20 experts helped determine the new cut off scores for the next PLT Praxis exam. It was an honor to be chosen!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from undergraduate school in May 2007. After graduation I received a teacher certificate in Elementary and K-8 Special Education. I have a minor in Reading and Kindergarten education. I also have endorsements to teach Middle School Math, Reading/Language Arts, and Science. I can coach any sport in elementary and middle school and have a varsity basketball endorsement. Finally, I have a K-12 technology endorsement. In May 2009 I graduated with a K-12 Educational Administration degree. I am a trained Reading Recovery teacher. During the summer of 2010, I took certification coursework to become a Reading Specialist in the state of South Dakota. I want to get my doctorate in Reading someday!
