This SMARTboard lesson describes expository, narrative, and persuasive types of writing. After that, it offers 5 different writing prompts, some with rubrics. The prompts set the scene (they don't just simply state a suggestion for writing).

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching for 13 years. Five of those years were in a Montessori (1st-3rd grade) classroom in our newly-founded public school Montessori setting. Now I teach third grade (the best grade to teach, in my opinion)!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I honor student input and find value in students' ideas. My classroom is rarely filled with the teacher doing a bunch of lecturing. I have recently become interested in Whole Brain Teaching (check it out on YouTube).

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Okemos Commitment to Excellence award, Extraordinary Science Curriculum award, Technology Guru plaque

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I bleed green and white, for Michigan State University, of course! It's nice living in (or near) a college town. There are so many resources that my students and I benefit from, such as the planetarium, dairy store (how to make ice cream), the Children's 4-H Gardens, Wharton (center for performing arts), and so much more! Plus, we teachers have access to professors and they are often willing to come into the classroom to enrich our lives more! I earned both my bachelor's and master's degrees from MSU. The College of Education has earned many honors too. It's a pedagogical mecca!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have the most wonderful husband and a most amazing son. My son is in first grade at my school. It's nice to live and work in the same community. Life is good!
