Ms. Martine: I have taught 1 year with San Angelo ISD (subbing and 2nd grade), 1 year in a daycare setting, and 5 years with Fort Stockton ISD (grades 1st-3rd).
Ms.Martine: I am a hands-on, always looking for a better way kind of teacher. Not to say I don't talk a lot or use printables (re: uughh worksheets) but I always feel there is a better way out there that I haven't found or tried yet. I'm looking to create interactivites out of traditional teaching "stuff" and I am looking to buy it too!!!
Ms. Martine: Not yet... Someday...
Ms. Martine: I attended Austin Community College in pursuit of my Associates in Early Childhood Education, then decided, "what the hey? I might as well get my Bachelor's and go where the REAL money is!" (heh, heh, heh, I was naive...) I attended Angelo State University and received my B.S. in Interdisciplinary Child Development and Learning. I want my Master's, but also like to sleep at night, so we'll see... I looooove PD though, not even joking, I might quit the classroom thing and try to get on with a region center.
Ms. Martine: I'm pretty hilarious, that's not really a talent or awarded quality though... I like to write, or rather rewrite popular songs to fit the objectives we're covering... Me rapping is pretty riotous. Visit me at http://inspiringinquiringminds.blogspot.com/
