With over 20 years of teaching experience in the primary and intermediate grades! I have enjoyed every year, teaching a diverse population of socio-economically challenged students, most of whom are second language learners! Don't give up on this world yet! It is a very, very big place! Teachers are pretty amazing people! Tremendously resilient! They never give up on their kids!
Our students are digital natives with varying attention spans who are used to a fast paced technology driven environment where everything is instantaneous. Worksheets fail to provide engagement; whereas animated lessons with guided modeling can assist students to mastery. PowerPoints are designed by standard to engage, instruct, and provide intensive modeling for mastery. With thematic animations, a touch of humor, and kid friendly topics, students can be almost guaranteed to keep their eyes locked on the material. Every lesson is formatted with direct instruction, guided practice, and independent practice, where teachers can be provided with immediate feedback on which students are grasping the standard. Teachers are provided with test preparation built into almost every lesson. Perfect to use with whiteboards, SMARTboards, and Interwrite Pads, and CPS, so teachers can avoid the long lines in the copy room!
A few, but the best gift ever received was a half filled bottle of perfume stolen from a big sister. Melts the heart still... and yes, we discussed taking things that didn't belong to us... We'll take a ripped piece of lined paper that declares us the "Best Teacher in the World!" and stuck on our desk any day. *and I'll add... the best gift I gave myself was saying, "enough is enough" I love you, my dear and precious teachers. I'm out here trying to make the world a better place still- you keep on doing like you do! (Susan) the hobby side of TU
San Diego rocks! Our alma maters are: University of San Diego, and California State San Marcos. It ain't the school, its the schooling! It ain't the $ it is the heart!! It is the brain, heart and soul inside the body that needs lifting- it isn't the institution, the school is just a building...
We strive to make quality digital resources for engaging students and helping move them toward mastery! We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org Look forward to hearing from you! And remember, we are also teaching and raising babies while we do this, well- 4th or 5th job on our "to do" list! Buy from independents like the ones you see here on TPT... Let's make THEM RICH!!!
