I have 12 years of experience teaching 4th, 5th, and 2nd grades. Second is currently my favorite though, as I am taller and they haven't completely caught on that there are more of them than me. I enjoy spending my day with children that are unaware of the ability to mutiny...
I'm going to go with "hands-on eccentric". If there is such a thing. I like to have fun. I want my students to have fun too. I prefer projects over worksheets- there is something much more satisfying to me in seeing students gain knowledge by doing than sitting still pretending to listen.
I give myself the "You are Awesome!" award every morning in the mirror as I brush my teeth. Eventually others will catch on.
My undergraduate degree is in English. I planned on being either the next great author of the literate world, librarian, or a princess. It turned out that my expectations didn't make much money. So I went into teaching. Yeah, baby, that's where the big bucks are! I get to work with priceless treasures everyday. It makes my heart happy.
The products in this store are a joint venture between myself and my lovely sister, Traci. Traci provides the line drawing for our clipart, and then I graphically design them into digital images. We want you to be pleased with our products. If there is anything you would like to see please let us know. All of our preview downloads now include a page introducing ourselves with examples of extremely photogenic moments in our lives - you can see us for realz-yo! And a short, and not-at-all humble list of our educational/creative credentials.
