I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to know some amazing people , that also happen to be some of the most amazing teachers.

We get so wrapped up in our every day lives that sometimes we fail to see or “ask” those closest to us how they think and feel.  I want to give these amazing teachers an opportunity to shine and share some of their experiences, thoughts and tips with the ……..world!

 

My first Feature Teacher, is someone I went to school with.

Her passion and love for children and teaching was apparent from the first day I met her.  I was fortunate to have the opportunity to student teach with her, I feel we made a pretty incredible team 🙂  (Remember the pumpkin passing A,B, C activity we created??!)

Not only is patience required, but that is such an impressionable time in children’s lives…….If I had my own child, I would want to ensure “J” was their teacher

  1. Aww, this is an awesome series! I’ve heard about smartboards and the ICU actually has one in the conference room, but…it unfortunately doesn’t work, haha.

    And oh, Wawa. Definitely wouldn’t say no to that! 😛
