Taught 1st grade for 5 years and student taught kindergarten for 1 year. Also was a Preschool lead teacher for 4 year olds. One thing I know is that these youngsters have a mind that craves to learn new things. I love to harness their questions and use opportunities to teach them something new, even if it isn't on the lesson plan. Not only are they learning academics, they are learning life skills! I like to create things that adapt to their growing curiosity!
My teaching style is pretty traditional. I love hands-on learning and using real life experiences to make connections with student's learning. With teaching youngsters, there must be a lot of routine, structure and consistency. Since I teach in Texas, we use TEKS resource standards which is different from most other states, however, I have come to realize from using TPT that a lot of the standards are very similar.
I wish I had a lengthy list here of all the awards and honors I have received but the truth of the matter is, I am just the average teacher who works hard and tries to balance teaching with home life and my 4 children. So I guess you could say my honors and awards are seeing kiddos learn and have fun everyday and going home to my sweet babies every night :) I am team leader of the first grade team at my campus. I also participate in PBIS and am on the Math DVAT committee for our district. Other than that, just a regular first grade teacher!
I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2011 with a Bachelors in Education EC-6. I also have background in Real Estate. I have been considering going back to receive my Masters but I need my personal life to slow down a bit before I can do that!
My name is Michelle Eberle and I am a fun-loving, first grade teacher. I am a proud wife, mother and Aggie! (Whoop!). I have been first teaching since 2013 in East Texas and am loving it!
