I taught a year of 2nd and a year of 3rd. During my year teaching 3rd I realized that (at least for now) the public education sector wasn't for me. I couldn't stand the constant DIBELs and Read to Achieve testing I was doing- I felt like I never got to actually teacher. I am in the process of starting a CrossFit Kids program. If you don't know what CrossFit is take a minute to look it up because it could change your life! So I'm still teaching but now I teach about health, nutrition, and fitness instead of math, science, etc. :) Banner Graphics provided by: © 2013 The 3AM Teacher http://the3amteacher.blogspot.com/ Logo Graphics provided by: www.onceuponaportable.blogspot.com
I never learned well sitting behind a desk and I find I don't teach well when my kids are sitting at their desks. I am all about giving the kids choices, and responsibility, for their learning. I try to create materials that get them moving, thinking, and growing. In June 2013 I tried CrossFit for the first time and fell in love. I had never been an athlete and that made me think that I would never be fit. I want to help kids see fitness and nutrition as something ANYONE can do. Whether your good at basketball, baseball, or no sport you can still be fit and make it fun.
Yet to be added
My mother is a teacher and I have known that I wanted to teach from a very young age. I grew up in Farmville, NC and attended public schools K-12. However, my mother homeschooled my two younger siblings so I have a lot of homeschool knowledge as well. I attended Barton College where I obtained my B.S. in Elementary Education.
I teach in a small North Carolina community at CrossFit Greenville. I'm 24 and LOVE my job and making resources that make other teacher's lives easier.
