I have been bounced around quite a bit in my career and placed where they needed me and where the jobs were. That being said for awhile this was highly frustrating to me as I never had the opportunity to perfect my craft and I constantly had to look for new resources that were fitting for the new grade I was teaching. I learned early on to save everything because I had no idea where I would be in the upcoming year. I finally realized my best resources were ones that I could take with me across multiple grade levels or easily adapt. I am finally settled into kindergarten ..... at least for now. Ultimately, I am really thankful that I have had such a broad range of teaching experiences as I think it has made me a better teacher and certainly contributes to Well-Rounded Teaching!
I have a more relaxed teaching style. I am not very strict about talking or staying seated as long as the conversation and movements around the room are purposeful and revolve around learning. My kids KNOW my routines but sometimes there is a lot going on in my classroom and it could be mistaken for chaos. I try to make my learning environment fun and engaging and my students seem to enjoy my class.
