TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This will be my third year teaching. In past years I have taught a 1st/2nd grade split, and 2nd grade, but this year I will be teaching 1st grade!! **As you can see, mostof my files are free! If you download something I've made and you like it, please rate me and leave me a comment!** Check out my teaching blog!!! Learn, Laugh, Grow!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire - Yeats I would describe my style as hands on, fun and interactive. I try to differentiate as much of my day as possible. I believe it's important for students to learn HOW to learn in whole group instruction, but I also think that each child deserves a good chance to learn in the way the learn best!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm a third year teacher, which means I'm still getting out there in the teaching world. The best honor I could get, is one that I'm lucky enough to be given every day I'm with my kiddos! It's seeing that light bulb flash inside them; seeing each of them excited and driven to learn!!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

All through my own education, I knew I wanted to be an Elementary School Teacher! I started out very young, "teaching" my poor younger brother all sorts of important things! After graduation from high school I attended Albion College in Albion, MI. There I studied Elementary Education and Spanish Language. I was lucky enough to study abroad in Spain for a semester and was even able to observe at a Spanish school! And my education continues; I love attending Professional Deveopment - my favorite topics: Reading, Mathamatics and Technology!!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I know they always say, "don't recreate the wheel" but I LOVE to make my own activities and handouts for students! Please leave your love, ideas, and suggestions in the comments section!
