Miss Nelson from
I LOVE the name of her blog! I'm the same way with my kiddos, I just never get around to posting the pics! =)
Enjoy reading about her.
Grade you teach:
I’ve taught K, 1st, and 2nd. I’m currently teaching a 1st /2nd combination class. I love the primary grades!
How long have you been teaching?
I’ve been teaching for 10 years. It sure does go by fast.
What is your teaching "style"?
I feel that learning should be fun, engaging, and individualized for each student. School should be a place where children look forward to coming each day. My goal is to create life-long learners who enjoy learning and experiencing new things. I try to incorporate as much visual, auditory, and kinesthetic aides into my lessons. I love integrating all subjects. If you walk into my classroom you will tons of anchor charts, lessons on the smartboard, and tons of cooperative learning. My classroom may be loud and seem chaotic to the outsider but everyone knows exactly what they are working on. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What is your most memorable teaching moment?
This is a hard one! Everyday is filled with wonderful memories; you never know what’s going to take place. The one memory that stands out the most is a surprise Author’s Tea. During my first year teaching I was just trying to survive. I had planned an Author’s Tea Party to showcase our fairy tales that the students had written but didn’t know what to expect. All of the parents were coming to listen to their child read aloud their fairy tales. I hadn’t planned much! When I walked into my room that morning it was
decked out with balloons, table decorations, and a complete food buffet. I was in AWE! I had a teacher’s child that year who happened to have a master key. She had surprised me with this amazing Author’s Tea party. After the party, the parents gifted me with a Gift Card bouquet. It was a memory I’ll never forget.
Why did you start a blog?
I started blogging because I’ve been blog stalking for many years. I felt like it was my turn to share ideas and activities with other teachers and bloggers. Since blogging, I have grown so much by collaborating with other teachers around the world. I’m so thankful for blogging community.
