I begin my 12th year teaching starting in August!! Lots of creative activities!! 40 Kindles in my classroom!! (Purchased by me and family) We want to develop life-long readers! At this point in the year I have more than 300 books in my Kindle library. To have an instant library in their hands is great for kids who want everything “now” and who do not want to wait. (Adults love this feature, too!!) A book can be downloaded from the Archives in mere seconds…LET THE READING BEGIN!!
CREATIVE!! VERY CREATIVE!! I use the curriculum given to me and make it fun - interesting - and easy to use!! Something that the kids will enjoy!! High Energy days!! High Energy Kids!!
New Teacher of the Year my first year teaching!! History Alive Grant Award 2007 To be a teacher!! The best job that kids are always happy to see you!! Do you walk in with co-walkers clapping and cheering to see you?! I bet your students clap and cheer!!
