Meet the Teacher Monday

It's Meet the Teacher Monday at:

Tell us a little something about you...

I'm Nicole, a half-time Technology Resource Specialist and half-time Second Grade teacher from Vancouver, Canada.

How long have you been teaching?  

In a little over two weeks, I will begin my ninth year of teaching.  Wow, that makes me feel old!  I'm used to being one of the younger teachers at my school, but I think that's going to change soon.

Because teaching jobs are hard to come by in BC, I started out teaching at a language school and then moved onto Montessori kindergarten. As it turned out, I didn't enjoy Montessori. A year later I was fortunate to get hired at another independent school, where I have been ever since.  I have taught Preschool, Phys Ed, Grade 1, and Grade 2.

You might not know...

I spend way too much time online finding printables to use in the classroom and fun websites to use with my interactive projector.  

I drink diet Coke like it's water.  

I have eight years of post-secondary education and I am contemplating starting up again next September.

As much as I love all things Apple, I still haven't upgraded to an iPhone.

I love dollar stores.

What are you most looking forward to this school year?

I have a new room that is much larger than my old one.  I am looking forward to having different types of work spaces for students.  This is the first time I have had room for a proper Listening Station!

What do you need to improve?

I want to be able to leave school by 4PM most days.  Maybe if I put that in writing, it will actually happen!

I want to implement The Daily Five and Rocket Math.

What teaching supplies can you *not* live without?

Epson BrightLink Interactive Projector
Macbook Pro
Personal laminator
Paper cutter
Fabric for my bulletin boards
Containers from various dollar stores

    Now it's your turn.  Hop on over to Blog Hoppin' to link up!
