This is my second year teaching. I have been teaching writing and language arts to 5th and 6th graders, in the inner-city. I work with a high ELL base of students.
Embracing the chaos and loving every minute. With testing, standards, assemblies, meetings, needing to eat, etc. it can feel overwhelming. I just focus on "what do my kids need?" and roll from there. I try to make things interactive and allow students' personalities to shine. We laugh, love, and LEARN! My goal is that they leave my classroom a better humanoid with more brain power.
Surviving each day.
I attended the University of Central Missouri. I participated in their clinical program that allowed me to learn IN the classroom instead of behind a desk. It was awesome!
I have a dog named Chico and a cat that is twice the size of him named, Royal. I also love tacos and Jesus!
