I am about to do something that I have wanted to do for a very long time! BLOG! I will join the ranks of bloggers and hope to make a difference in the world of education.
When I began my teaching career in 1996, I knew that I loved kids and teaching, but I never knew how much it really mattered until I had my own children. When my twins started kindergarten last year, I was a nervous wreck! I wanted my girls to have the best teacher in the world. I wanted that teacher to love my girls and nurture them. I knew that if the teacher loved them, they would love her back and in return, love school. Lucky for me, the teacher that they had, was amazing, and my girls love school. They even say that they want to be a teacher when they grow up.
As an administrator at the same school, I can honestly say that I look at each teacher and think to myself, “Is that the best teacher for my kids?” As I interview for new teachers, I always think to myself, “Would I put my children in their classroom?” As I said before, I loved teaching and I love kids, but when you have your own children, education suddenly takes on a new light and mission.
With the ever so changing standards and ways to teach, I hope that I can share my ideas and they can help others.
Here’s to shaping the world!
