There were so many resources available when it came to hand signals, but none that really grabbed my student's attention until my son said "Mom, take a photo of my hand, this way the kids see a real hand". He even went so far to tell me which ones

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

After having worked in Human Resources for a few years I thought I would be the most organized and highly capable person to tackle any obstacle as a teacher. I was wrong! I just finished my first year teaching 3rd grade math and science at a Title 1 inner city school and it has by far proven to me that teachers truly are superheroes. Third grade was fun but I will be teaching 2nd grade this year. Before I go on this new adventure, I am seriously craving some organization. I am hoping to utilize every bit of my spreadsheet making, table organizing, presentation making skills to help myself and anyone else who is seeking order in this chaotic crazy profession we so passionately love.

MY TEACHING STYLE

This will be my second year teaching and I have come to learn that I have previously approached children with an open heart, ready to provide them the love and support they need to succeed. Unfortunately I have learned that although they may lack some, they really need structure and discipline. This year my teaching will include conscious discipline as well as a strong behavior system and every effort to find ways that parents and family members can make connections with their children's education. So much has changed since I was a little girl, family members now are working and trying to make ends meet, that it's up to us to fill in the gaps when we know we cannot do it on our own. My style is reflective of what my principal aspires of her school but I am hoping to empower families and children this year the best way I can. Communication will be a huge factor, it always is, isn't it? :)

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have not earned any . . . yet . . . but when your principal uses the words "unwillingness to quit" in conversation about my trials and tribulations during my first year teaching, then I consider that a great honor. I keep going and going and going . . .

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Short of a thesis of completing my M.S. in Sociology and Social Justice (concentrated predominately on issues of environmental justice and the American education system . . . looking forward to gaining more knowledge and hopefully making some amazing contributions to the education field). Just passed my PPR exam! Soon to be certified K-6!
