I'm only 3 days away from starting a new year in 3rd grade! Teaching, like my career in basketball, comes naturally for me...but the inevitable butterflies that I used to get before my games are here just the same for teaching. I know I can do it...I'm prepared...I'm pumped...but those nerves that used to hit the hardest right during the National Anthem are here now. I've decorated my room and I'm slowly getting a grip on the curriculum, but the same thought gets me each year at this time. I will impact lives this year. My words and actions need to be chosen carefully because they have such tremendous power to hurt or heal...criticize or praise...discourage or inspire. Take a look into my room and i'll get back with you once the kiddos get here!
I am a wife, mom, and 3rd grade teacher. I love to create meaningful (although often unconventional) learning experiences for my students. I have been called to teach and want to be a blessing to my students as I have had many influential teachers who have blessed me!
After 4 years of 1st grade I'm moving on up 3rd...and pumped about it! I love to create lessons, projects and curriculum. I also love to be techy...and crazy. Yes, I will frequently dress up as characters in our stories or super heroes...just get used to it. :)
