I have taught 5th grade for five years in Oklahoma. Go ahead and check out my blog thehystericalgiraffe.wordpress.com and my Insta and Facebook for more continuous updates! I would love to collaborate with all grade level teachers and be able to modify work in order to accommodate! Please let me know what you need!
I believe a balanced teaching style with many student-centered lessons are important. I think that student-led instruction is important. I also believe that classroom community is invaluable and that must be the primary task of the teacher. I use a restorative discipline behavior management method and follow the Great Expectations Eight Essentials in my classroom.
I work as the New Teacher Liaison in my school. I also participate on the district's technology learning committee. I am working on my Master's at the University of Oklahoma.
