Here I am with a 5 lb box of York Peppermint Patties and a shirt to show just how much I LOVE these little treats!! I thought this would be a GREAT way to introduce myself, in my classroom with my favorite treat.
I'm so excited for the new year to start and look forward to working with all of you this year. It's going to be a fun filled year with LOTS of learning. It's amazing to see the growth from the beginning of the year to the end. I'm always blown away with how much these little kiddos grow socially, emotionally, and academically.
My classroom is bright, cheery, and inviting! My goal is to make learning fun and engaging. I want my room to look like the kids LIVE in it so you'll always find work and art on the walls. I have also created small work areas for kids to go to when they want a change from their desks or during Daily 5 time. We'll be creating a strong community within our room with set expectations.
As for my teaching style, I like to consider myself relaxed, patient, and determined. I have high expectations that ALL my students can learn and be successful. I strive for my students to work to the best of their abilities and celebrate their accomplishments. I want kids to know that it's okay to make mistakes because no one is perfect. They'll quickly learn that EVEN their teacher makes mistakes. They just need to give me 100% and work hard when they come to school.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and I'll see you soon!!
