Tell us a little something about you...
I was born and raised in California and now live in the rainy city known as Seattle. I am 23 years old and have two furry babies, a german shepherd and a pug. I am not marry but happily living with my boyfriend.
How long have you been teaching?
I am going on my third year of teaching. For the past two years, I have been working as an ELL teacher in kindergarten. My dream has finally came true, I am now having my own classroom after two years. I love being an ELL teacher but it is nice to finally have your own space and your own kiddos rather than immersing yourself in another teacher's classroom.
You might not know...
I cannot draw and not so crafty. But thanks to the blogging world, I can now look somewhat crafty and artsy. My students can draw better than I can! That is not a lie either. I am addicted to iced passion tea lemonade and iced green tea lemonade. In order for me to not be cranky, I need some every morning!
What are you looking forward to this school year?
I am looking forward to having my own classroom with 29 K babies and having a WILD year! To see my little munchkins grow as unique individuals and become passionate about learning. And also, finishing my masters in reading specialist!!!!
What do you need to improve?
One biggest thing that I need to improve on is my shyness. I tend to be VERY shy when I first meet new people so this is something I need to learn how to get over since I will be meeting a lot of parents next monday. Also, to be better at organizing! As far as academic goes, I would like to improve on my mini-lessons for readers and writer's workshop.
What teaching supplies can you NOT live without?
- SMART board (unfortunately I need to learn how to live without it this year)
- flair pens
- my starbucks lemonade
- my carpet
