I completed my degree and have been teaching for two years now. Being a teacher has already taught me that no matter how much you think you know, you can always learn something new.
- Kids will be kids... Respectful, Responsible, and Resourceful kids! - Materials should be clutter-free, direct, and supplemental to the learning goals. - Worksheets/handouts are meant to be teaching opportunities. Gone are the days of: "Here's a worksheet. Now do it!" - Don't reinvent the wheel... unless your wheel is an improvement from what's already been invented!
Yet to be added
I grew up and attended elementary, middle, and high school in Utah. I then attended Utah State University and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education (grades 1-6) and have an ESL endorsement.
Over my short-lived career (2 years down... many to go!!) I have spent hours searching for resources to supplement my teaching. I have gotten pretty good at "making it work" with whatever I could find. But, I decided to stop searching and started spending the time making my own materials. Now, you can use my resources and (hopefully) make them work for you! Good luck out there!
