Buyer re: Welcome Back Owl Poem for Back to School Goodie Bag
Hello!
I was wondering how you manipulated the page to print smaller ones. I can only figure out how to print 8.5 by 11. I was also wondering where you found pencil sharpeners for the students. Is there a way to change the sharpener to stickers? (SO we stick together throughout the year)
Just wondering! I love the poem and the boarder! Super CUTE!

When you print and the print screen comes up, go to layout and change pages per sheet to 2. That should do the trick. I found the sharpeners 2 for $1 at Michael's (and had a 20% off coupon) but I love the idea of the stickers so I've added a second version for you! It should be there if you download it again!

They are part of the colorful owls collection at Carson-Dellosa Publishing. I bought it directly from their site. Keep an eye out for more owl items in my TpT store! I've got some more items in the works!

I just opened this on two computers here at school and it opened correctly. I would contact TpT help for this issue. I have only seen bad gateway when on a school computer that has something blocked/there is a firewall. Perhaps try it from another computer and if that doesn't work, definitely contact TpT for further instructions. I'm sorry you are having trouble with it!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This is my sixth year in fifth grade and my ninth year of teaching. I'm a military wife so I've had the opportunity to teach in Massachusetts, Washington, and now Virginia. I've taught third, fourth, and fifth, but my true love is definitely with my fifth graders!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm a good mix of demonstrator and facilitator, and I think that my style is constantly changing as I adapt to the students in front of me year after year. It is most important for me to create a safe and positive learning environment where conversations about learning can take place and all moments can be learning moments. I use a great deal of the Responsive Classroom approach, especially when it comes to the first six weeks, modeling (and more modeling and MORE modeling) and academic choice. If I learned anything from college, it's that lectures are BORING so I make sure my students are part of every learning experience with lots of opportunity for discussion and movement.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year Nominee in 2011, 2012, and 2013.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I've got lots of degrees! Two associate's degrees, one in paralegal studies, and one in criminal justice. My bachelor's is in political science/pre-law, so you can see where my career was headed. Then I started coaching and realized there couldn't be anything more rewarding than making a difference in children's lives. So I did a two year M. Ed. program at a college in Western Massachusetts and completed two years of service with AmeriCorps at the same time. By the time I finished in 2005, I couldn't wait to get in the classroom. And here I am, 9 school years later, ready to begin another great year of teaching!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm a military wife. I've seen 33 of the 50 states and I love to travel! I think our best education comes from our personal experiences and so I try to get out and see new places in our world whenever I can so I can bring those experiences to the classroom.
