TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Although I had wanted to be a teacher for years, I made career choices that made my parents very happy; but my choices meant I came to teaching later in life. I was so very lucky to be able to teach for 5 and a half years in a wonderful teaching community. Arthritic knees shortened my time as a teacher--temporarily--I hope to once again say, "I am a teacher" when I have a new set of knees.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Since I believe learning should be fun; I guess you could say that my teaching style was a bit "laid back" and sometimes silly. I enjoyed listening to my students laugh when we read a story or chanted new words or math facts. First graders appreciate whimsy and don't find a teacher with an arrow on her head that says: "Equals means the same as" all that unusual. Just like "a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down," a smidgen of humor makes the learning "stick" in the brain.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I didn't really get to teach long enough to win all kinds of "official" rewards; my greatest rewards came from having a fellow teacher ask that his child be placed in my class; having former students stop by to thank me for helping them understand math; or being invited to a former student's Sweet Sixteen party.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I grew up in Montana; so after graduating from high school, I went off to Montana State University from which I graduated with a degree in Sociology. From there I went on to earn a law degree from the University of Wyoming. After graduation, I accepted a job in the trust department of a local bank and discovered how much I liked working with trusts and estates. I spent the next 29 years "in trust," as they say, until I returned to Bellarmine University here in Louisville to earn a Master's Degree in Education.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I didn't major in education in college because my mother wanted me to go to law school, but I happily spent hours helping my education-major sorority sisters with their teaching projects. I thoroughly enjoyed helping them think of fun and interesting ways to approach learning. Finally, I got my act together and earned my MAT so I could both teach and use my "projects" to help my students learn. My students taught me a lot these past few years about what works. It's great to have my students say, "This is fun, Mrs. Tucker." What could be better? Although I must confess that sharing with my team and seeing my creations hanging on the student wall is almost as good. Here's hoping you will also find that my creations help your students learn while having fun. "Pickle Juice Productions" is a bit of whimsy on my part. I have the time to polish my existing creations and dream up new ones because I slipped on pickle juice outside our school cafeteria, landed on my knees, and accelerated the onset of arthritis in my already damaged knees.
