Hi! My name is Amber Jensen and I am currently in my 4th year teaching. I have been teaching 3rd grade for the past 2 years and I absolutely LOVE this age group! We are departmentalized at my school, so I primarily teaching reading, writing, and language. I absolutely love books and enjoy introducing new characters and strategies to my students!
I love to keep my little ones up and moving! We love to make-up games, chants, raps, dance, songs, and claps to help us remember what we are learning! It is not only important to teach my kiddos what is on the curriculum, but also teach them how to be good people. In our class we encourage kindness and giving. What I love most about first grade is how much progress you see in your students. Each day is a new challenge for them to conquer and they always surprise me. I try to set goals for my students to help meet them on their level. My instruction is CONSTANTLY changing to better suite their needs.
