Hello, I'm Jada the creator behind 4TheLuvofCrayon! I currently teach 4th grade in Northwest Ohio after transplanting here to work with inner city children. Working in a low socioeconomic area presents many challenges; however, those challenges help me become a better educator each and every day.
My teaching style incorporates high expectations, accepting responsibility for their own behavior and learning, and making the most out of what we have. If you come into my classroom my students will proudly show you what they are working on. They each are excited about their individual learning paths, goals, and growth. I decided an important aspect of my classroom would individualized learning to meet each child's needs, but I also stress the importance of each child taking the responsibility for his or her own growth.
Yet to be added
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in educational technology from Athens State University but also attended Blue Mountain Christian College. I am current pursuing my masters for leadership in education administration.
I was born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama but moved to Ohio for work. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart who knows that I am dedicated to my students. We have 1 turtle named Bisque. Our second turtle Soup passed away in 2016. Fun fact: I've had visitors who have never met me enter my classroom and promptly leave because they think the teacher has abandoned the class. Being in the 4ft range means that by the end of the school year the majority of my 4th graders are taller than me.
