First year teacher.
I have a very different teaching style than I experienced as a child. I have a fun hands on classroom. I use hands on activities whenever possible. I feel I can reach out to more students this way.
I am more of an athlete in the aspect that I have won many awards in the past for athletic accomplishments. I look to this awards to remind myself that many students learn better through hands on experiences.
I was a very discouraged child. I had a hard time learning at a young age and many teachers did not like that I could not sit still for hours at a time. I in turn now have a classroom where my students are free to sit where they like as long as they follow the classroom rules. They also are allowed to sit on the floor to work or stand whatever will help them.
I am learning and growing with my students and hoping that they will walk away from my class with a positive outlook on school and education.
