Teaching Motto: Let them do it!!!


Who was your favorite teacher? Why?


My high school Biology teacher, Mr. Highfield. He seemed to take an interest in me, and even thought that I was semi-smart =) That really was the first time a teacher made me feel good about myself, and that was my junior year of high school!


What are three things every teacher should own?


1.)  A pocket for treasures

2.)  A smile for the day

3.)  A sense of humor

 

These are the three most important things because there is no bigger treasure than the smile you give to a child and a sense humor to laugh at yourself.


If you could have any person (living, dead or fictional) as a principal, who would it be?


My Aunt Madeline-- she really gets it!


What profession other than your own would you most like to attempt?


Disaster Coordinator-- As I love helping others


Describe your all-time favorite lesson/unit activity


I love -- under the sea, outer space, and dinosaurs.


What is the greatest misconception about teachers?


We are just glorified babysitters.

 
How did you know you wanted to be a teacher?


When I stepped into my first group of children and they asked, "What are we doing today" and at the end said, "That was awesome-- are you coming back?"
