Although my teaching journey has only just begun, I have held various different positions in the first 3 years of my career. For my student teaching experience, I was placed in a Kindergarten Inclusion setting. After college, I received my first position as a full year maternity leave replacement for a Pre-K Special Education class. These students not only had IEP's, but were English Language Learners, speaking only Korean or Spanish at home. From there I taught a full year of BSI in 3rd and 4th grade, on to a 5th grade resource room maternity position, on to extra support/dyslexia support teacher for grades 1-6, and finally to a 3rd grade maternity leave replacement for a 3rd grade inclusion teacher. So many positions, so many students, in so little time had given me the advantage of working with all types of learners!
I myself struggled throughout my years of primary and secondary education. I remember sitting in class, still working on problem 4 when everyone else was on problem 9. I understand what these students go through, and that is why I am always on the hunt for fun and engaging activities that actually work. The textbook can only take our students so far. I feel it is my job to lead them to love learning. That is my mission with each and every student, and that is what lead me to creating my own activities.
