This is a great worksheet to practice writing leads. I left a model, where I give a sentence where students needs to re-write it in the six different lead styles. Then, I left you a blank version so students can apply it to their own writing.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This years ends my tenth year teaching, from San Diego Unified to California's Central Valley. This is the end of my seventh year teaching fifth grade. I have a CLAD credential, a Special Ed credential (mild to moderate disabilities) and a supplemental in English Language Arts. I am the mother of three, ages 2, 5, 7. The next thing on my horizon is getting GATE certification and getting my Spanish up to par.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Every kid is a genius. Unfortunately, not every kid considers themselves as such. There are language barriers, social barriers.... and my entire job is to knock down the things that stand in the way of my students' progress. In my store, everything is simple, geared towards the student who doesn't understand. No cluttered-up directions. No cutesy cartoons. No wordy word problems. Straight to the meat of the matter. I want kids grappling with the concept, not the activity. So, in my classroom, everything is simpler, cleaner.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Awards and honors and trophies mean nothing. No one will ever give you a trophy for the greatest accomplishments. For me, I overcome poverty. I am the first in my entire family to own a home, to graduate college, to travel for pleasure, to save for retirement. (Even my mother still thinks it crazy to put money in a retirement account... she calls it 'wasting it'.) I grew up pretty poor (don't judge me... San Diego has lots of poor too!) and I completely overcame it. Everything I do in education is for the lowly, humble kids who have one ticket out of their own poverty, Like or hate Obama, he said it best "The best anti-poverty program is a world-class education."

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Man, I hated fifth grade. If I got less than a 60%, it was back on my desk to re-do. I always thought, "If I knew how to do it right in the first place, I would have already done it.... grrrrr." So, I grew up, and tried to become the adult I needed when I was ten.
