I have been blessed to not only teach third grade for four years, but I have also taught fourth grade for two years.
A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils. ~Ever Garrison Education to me means teaching students to their fullest capability, while facilitating learners to make their own understanding. I believe as an educator, we are to take a constructivist approach and create a classroom atmosphere that encourages inquiry. Students come into a classroom full of questions and curiosity. Ultimately, it is up to the teacher to assist students in answering their questions by providing meaningful learning experiences that allow students to think beyond the norm. By providing learning experiences that encourage students to make observations, pose questions, and think critically, students become active participants in their education. If as a teacher, one were only to highlight factual knowledge and discourage student involvement, students would not make connections or construct their own understanding. They would simply be able to recall facts. Students should be able to question ideas and create their own understanding (constructivism). [
I am honored to not only share my days with fabulous little people, but they encourage me to be better. Through my teaching experiences I have completed my Masters degree.
