Amanda B. re: Text Features--What are they?
I purchased the Text Features--What are they? presentation. However, the images are not showing up on the slides. Please help! I was planning to use this for a lesson tomorrow. Thanks!

I purchased this power point. However, when I downloaded it, it said the "file was corrupted" and could not be displayed. Can you email it directly to me or how can I get this? It looks really good. SusieLamon@aol.com

Hey! I'm so sorry that happened. Several people have purchased it recently and it has gone through fine. I'll double check the link. But in the meantime, I have sent it to you! I hope you like it!
Thanks,

Hello Miss Mac, My name is John Chabot and my company is Full Blast Productions. Full Blast publishes and distributes ESL ebooks. I'd be interested in discussing my company distributing some of your ebooks (Love Chocolate?). Please peruse my website at http://www.fullblastproductions.com and get in touch if you would like to discuss a business relationship. Thank you. john fbp@cogeco.ca

Hi John. I would definitely be interested in talking to you about writing or adapting some of my work. My "Love Chocolate" is more of an Lesson Plan extension giving methods and tools that I have used to envelope all subjects within a unit. It's not necessarily an e-book. My personal email is ashleymc221@gmail.com if you'd like to contact me further. Thanks for the interest.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in K, 1, 2, and 4! However, my favorite grade is 4th grade! I have taught here for 4 years and love the independence and the craving for problem-solving at this age. I gained my Bachelors from Elon University in Elementary (K-6) and recently finished my Masters at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Literacy (K-12) with a Reading Specialists degree. I can't wait to see where my experience takes me!!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that students learn best through small groups and the use of numerous mediums (technology, manipulatives, themed unit-studies) and I am continually aiming to make my classroom a place that fosters such learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was a North Carolina Teaching Fellow while in college and received numerous scholarships from the education department while in school.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I loved school, for the most part! I was always an A/B student, but had to work hard for each and every grade that I received. Creativity was my forte, though, so whenever a project or presentation was an option, I excitedly excelled! Writing was probably the most difficult part of my personal education career, but through gifted and caring teachers, I learned (ever-so-slowly) how to outline and then find a focus for my writing and take pride in each piece that I wrote; now writing is one of my favorite subjects to teach. Now having learned about curriculum and best practices of education, I understand how important it is to make lessons engaging and applicable to life and hope to bring it to life for each of my students!
