Hello and welcome to my classroom. This is my 14th year teaching and my third year at St. Tammany Jr. High. I love teaching and I especially love teaching the children in St. Tammany!
I graduated from Troy University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a specialty in Science and Social Studies. I attend professional development regularly such as Kagan Cooperative Learning, Moodle, and Growth Mindset.
I look forward to this new school year. We will cover many interesting topics.
Students have the first 8 minutes of clss to write their "I can" statement in their agenda and begin bell work. Bell work is focused around their vocabulary. They choose one of our vocabulary words each day and complete the following steps:
1. Write the word.
2. What do you think it means?
3. Write the definition from the glossary.
4. Use the word in a sentence.
5. Draw a picture of the word.
UNFINISHED BELL WORK IS TO BE COMPLETED NIGHTLY
