Meet the Teacher Monday
Monday, August 22, 2011
Tell us a little something about you...
My name is Beth Ann. I live in central New York. I just started getting into the blogging scene and am completely addicted! I have three children: Katie (16), David (14), and Janie (12). We live on a "wanna-be" farmette with our dogs, cats, and chickens.
How long have you been teaching?
I started out teaching in the same elementary school I attended. (I took over for my 6th grade teacher.) I taught 5th and 6th grade there and then took off time to raise my children. After they were almost all in school I applied for a new teaching job. I started in 2nd grade, moved to 1st, moved to 4th, and finally am back down in 1st again. (This is where I belong.)
You might not know...
I am addicted to running. I ran an Ultra Relay Race with 11 other women. (187 miles altogether) We came in 2nd place in the women's division!!!
What are you looking most forward to this school year?
I have an inclusion classroom this year. I am looking forward to working with some amazing TA's and students.
What do I need to improve?
I want to implement DAILY 5 correctly. I want the students to have fun while learning the millions of things we have to teach them.
What teaching supplies can you *not* live without?
Mr. Sketch Markers (They last the longest and the smell.... :)
My wonderful friend and colleague, Linda.
I am so excited about this week!
