TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a teacher from Victoria Australia and have been teaching for 10 years. I have taught all grades from Kinder (Prep) to Year 4, currently teaching 3rd and 4th grade :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

My favourite part of being a teacher is that I never stop learning. My teaching style has changed so much from my first year out teaching year 3 and 4s. I love trying new behavioural management techniques and working on changing my 'loud' teaching style (well, my whole personality) so I have a calm classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Some wisdom from Dr Seuss: "Will you succeed? Yes you will indeed! Ninety-eight and three quarters percent guaranteed!"

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have an extra interest in Math and Art, both of which I love! I have been very lucky to have extra training to be a remedial Math teacher and spent two years taking small groups of year 1 and 2 students to learn new Math skills as part of the EMU (Extending Mathematical Understanding) program.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

As well as teaching I love travelling, art galleries, collecting quotes, pretty things, vintage, op-shopping, sewing, cooking, baking, reading and the beach! Check out my blog http://astarandawish.blogspot.com and my Pinterest page http://pinterest.com/becperry for more teaching ideas. Please let me know about any other great ideas you have!
