I am a second year teacher. I graduated from the University of South Florida in just three short years and began teaching right away at the age of 21! While at USF, I did my first internship with a push-in ESE teacher. My second and third internships were with a first grade teacher. My final internship was with a 4th grade math and science teacher. When I graduated, I took the position of a first grade teacher at a wonderful school. This year I am currently at the same school, but I wanted to try the upper grades and so far so good! I am a fourth grade ELA teacher this year and LOVING it!
Differentiation, differentiation, oh and did I say DIFFERENTIATION!? Every student is different and every child learns differently. You can't expect any child to perform or learn in the same way. I find that it is in everyone's benefit to use different teaching styles and strategies for the wide variety of children and talents in your classroom.
I was given the title of a "highly effective" teacher by my Principal in my very first year, which is the highest rating you can get.
I attended the University of South Florida to get my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I had enough AP credits from high school, and was able to graduate from college in three years instead of four! I plan on going back to school to get my Master's Degree in leadership as well.
