These bags are a great way to get students excited about introducing themselves to the class. I copy the letter and “Me Bag” cover front to back, and paper clip it to a gallon ziplock bag. I stagger the sharing days to ensure that we have plenty

I use this behavior method as a “clip system.” I cut out each card and attach it to a ribbon and each student “clips in” each day and starts on green (Ready to Learn). Depending on the behavior and choices they can move up or down. Each color

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 7 years now, and I started my career in Tampa, FL. Right after I graduated from the University of Tampa I took my first job teaching Reading and Language Arts to 5th graders. After that I moved to a self-contained 1st grade classroom at the same school, and fell in love with primary education. The next year, as an added challenged I transferred to an International Baccalaureate Elementary school where I taught Kindergarten. A wedding and a dog later led me to Auburn, AL where I enjoyed every second of working with 3rd grade. My next adventure will be teaching Language Arts and History in Floyd, VA

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I believe teaching is the single most important tool to facilitate change: Change that occurs socially, academically, and emotionally. Teaching is the only profession that can encompass all three at the same time. While academics is clearly at the forefront of any classroom, the social and emotional curriculum are of equal if not more importance. I say this because I believe that in order for learning to take place, a student must first feel confident and loved. It is my primary goal each year to create a safe learning environment where students are comfortable enough to make mistakes, and confident enough to continuously give their best effort. While I want students to walk away each day with new information buzzing in their heads, I will be successful even if they only walk out of the door feeling loved and valued. Who we are as educators, is how we will be remembered by our students. I have every intention of being remembered as someone who loved them.
