I have always wanted to become a teacher and working with my students everyday confirms my career decision. Creating a positive classroom climate is the most important priority I have.
Kind, curious, respectful, and honest are only a few words that describe my students.
Summer breaks are a teachers favorite, but my students make it hard to be away from the classroom!
Although teaching my students to read higher level texts, tell time, add and subtract, life cycles, fairytales, nonfiction text features, to write in complete sentences, geometry, handwriting, habitats, (I could go on and on) are important...The most important thing I can teach my students is to be kind to one another.
Imagine if you had to sit in one spot all day long at your job? You have the ability to take breaks, walk around, stand at your desk, or even work from home! A buzz word in education these days is "flexible seating" and it is allowing the students the ability to work and learn in a space in which they feel comfortable and work best. It is giving students the independence of finding the best learning space for them! I have spent a lot of my own money in order to give students different seating options in our classroom.
