TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 14 years and have loved every second of it! I am now teaching 1st grade and have previously taught Kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. If you're looking for more ideas than what's here on Tpt, please visit my blog First Grade Smiles.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to have a structured classroom where routines are in place in order to avoid behavioral interruptions. Once this is in place, I love doing hands-on activities and allowing students to work together and share ideas. I have enjoyed learning about new technology as it comes out and incorporating that into my teaching. My goal is for students to take pride in their work and be excited about their accomplishments. I have realized how important my attitude is and how it affects my students' attitudes and behavior. Therefore, I try to be optimistic and positive whenever possible so it will rub off and allow for our days to be filled with smiles, laughter, and learning!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have served as a grade level coordinator for my district for 6 years, as well as the elementary social studies coordinator. My most prized honors have come from the thank you cards and notes I have received from parents and students over the years, as well as the kind words from my colleagues. Maybe those don't count as awards, but they definitely matter the most to me!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am certified in Elementary Education PreK-6th grade, Special Education K-12 and Literacy Education Birth-6th grade.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Quote to live by: "A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child." -- Forest Witcraft
