When I was a kid, I used to play that I was a teacher. Since I didn't have a board, I just used the door as the board (something that my parents didn't like at all).
That should have been a clue of what I wanted to become. But I spent six years working on the private sector before I finally figure out what was my calling.
As you may notice, I enjoy doing crafts with my students. I went to an artistic high school so I have a strong art background. Also I have seen as a Pre-K and second grade teacher how much my students learn by creating their own art.
Here are other things about me. My favorite color is "amarillo". My favorite movies are "The Notebook" and "Sweet Home Alabama". I love the most to be around my soon-to-be 4-year-old son, my gorgeous 5-months-old daughter and my grumpy Spanish-high school teacher hubby. I liked the least to cook. :-)
Now it's time to get to know the students. But ask 22 kids to talk about themselves at the same time could be a risky proposition. So HERE it's an easier way. Get them to write a book about themselves. Get them to make a craft. That way it's more fun and as a teacher, you find a lot about them.
