TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught second grade for 7 years in a small, rural school. After a short break to raise my children, I was offered a kindergarten position and am still there many years later and loving every minute!I can honestly say that I still jump out of bed each school morning eager to begin the day with my little ones!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that it is the teacher's job to inspire, but after the inspiration, it is then the teacher's job to step back and let the learning begin. Most of my student's day is spent in small groups, but I also believe that much can be learned in a large group setting, too. It is my belief that children learn the best when they are creating, so we do a lot of drawing, cutting, painting, and gluing in my classroom! I love it when my kinders come to school saying "What are we going to make today, Mrs. Feeney?" I LOVE the love notes they write to me and I love the fact that they LOVE school! I am inspired by my students and cannot think of a better way to live my life.
