This is my 19th year of teaching. I taught first grade for 11 years and I have taught second grade for 8 years. When I moved to second grade from first, I was able to take my whole class with me and it was great! I'm settled into second grade now and it's a good fit for me.
I've avoided this section because I really wasn't sure how I'd describe my own teaching style, so I turned to the internet. I found lots of web sites out there, but I believe that this type of style, NOT to be confused with Authoritarian Teaching Style, pretty much describes me: Authoritative Teaching Style >The authoritative teacher is one who has an orderly classroom, a strong discipline plan and is caring and supportive. Students respect this teacher and know that they can go to her with problems of any kind no matter how big or small.< It also said this, which I thought was interesting: >Teachers need to spend time regularly reviewing their teaching style. Knowing the difference between the authoritarian, permissive, detached and authoritative teaching styles will help teachers analyze their own teaching and focus on improving.<
I don't really agree with this section, so I will leave it blank. :-)
I have a B.A. in Elementary Education & Psychology and a Master's Degree in Education. I finished my graduate degree while working full time and raising my family. It was a very busy time!
I LOVE creating things for my classroom and always thought it would be fun to make things for other teachers, too. Now, I'm able to share them with others on TpT! Thanks so much for taking a peek at my page. Please *follow me*! :-) Happy Teaching! Sue
