I am a retired teacher of 26 years. Taught 2nd grade a quarter of a century (makes sound really old right?) BUT true...

Taught 1st grade one year, but 2nd was my true teaching niche'. Loved it and did a lot of technology with them my last few years!

I stayed active in my district after retirement with ed tech.

I told a group of new teachers in August that "if you go into teaching for the right reasons, you die a teacher at heart!: I will always consider myself a teacher!

Nice to meet all of you (or see the ones I already know!)

I started teaching 4 to 10 year-olds 2 years ago when I moved to Germany. I teach English, but noticed right away that the same things that work for elementary help out much more than my language teaching training! Literally the kids climbed walls the first day I taught them! I detail this experience in this post about how I came to use cooperative learning lessons.

It's a pleasure to meet the both of you.
Mrs Dem, I look forward to hearing about your first year experiences! I'm continually learn new things every day.

I'm a brand new K-6 teacher from Australia. I'm sure I will have many questions to ask and resources to share over the coming months.

I finally understand what Parent Teacher Conferences are all about

I have parents coming into my classroom today asking how their child is doing in my class. They only have a 95, how can they get a higher grade?Really?This happens over and over again. I wonder why they're here. I don't think it's to make themselves feel better about how great their child is doing in school. I also don't think that they are very worried about the 95 not being a 98. I believe it's to show their child that they are fully invested in their education.Parents who show up to Parent…See More
