I have been a teacher and working in a Title 1 school for 10 years! My first year of teaching was in 1st grade and then I transferred to 5th grade where I spent 8 years. Last year, I was moved to 3rd grade following a lot of cuts to our school district. So I feel like I am starting all over and Teachers Pay Teachers has been a huge help in developing my curriculum this year!
Someone once told me that the best form of classroom management is a well prepared lesson. I have lived by that through my last 10 years of teaching. If the students are engaged and are loving learning, behavior problems are so minimal. This sometimes is hard, but it is what I like to work towards!
I am "honored" everyday to have so many students to love ;)
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Southern Indiana in 2005. In 2013, I went back to school to get my Middle School Language Arts endorsement.
Thank you for visiting my store! My store name "For the Love" has many different meanings - For the love of my children, my husband, my school kids, my job, and my duties as a mother and professional. I could keep going, but I don't want to bore you! My name is Mrs. Kanipe and I live in a very small town in Southern Illinois with my husband and 4 children. Teachers Pay Teachers is my newest adventure - hope you will join with me!
