I have been teaching now for 12 years. As all teachers know, learning is a life long adventure. I have taught every grade in Elementary Education with the exception of Kindergarten. I started in 3rd Grade, was switched around by my principal to gain different experiences. I have taught 3rd grade for the last three years and with a new principal, I have been moved back to fifth grade after a 7 year hiatus. The last time that I taught 5th grade, my students then are seniors now and it has been exciting seeing them grow and constantly visiting their 5th grade teacher whenever they have the opportunity to do so.
My teaching style is more so of Modeling the learning and then Facilitating the growth of my students. We have an open door policy. No matter what was not learned yesterday, today is the first day of the rest of your life and you can learn today!
I have received numerous awards in my short twelve years of service but the Honor/Award that humbles me is being selected "Teacher of the Year" by my colleagues. They say the vote wasn't even close, lol. Now that is humbling.
