This week's featured teacher is Bri of Knowledge Mobile.
How long have you been teaching? 6 years
What grade levels have you taught? 5th grade, but now I support grades K-8 in an educational non-profit
What is your favourite part about teaching? I love the creativity of being a teacher - of creating the best lesson to see the lightbulb go on. I love creating activities that help students learn more about themselves and more about the world. Aside from the creative part, I just plain love the hugs. There is something about a hug from a six year old that makes you feel that all is right in the world. Especially when it is germ/booger free :)
What is your best advice for a beginning teacher? Find a mentor who is invested in seeing you succeed. You can't, won't, and shouldn't know everything. As great as Pinterest is, you need a real live person to talk to and run your ideas by. I remember being so excited by a lesson that I shared with my mentor teacher and she literally shot it down because I hadn't planned for management or my expectations. Always look for someone who will push you to grow. Always look for ways to push yourself.
Bri would like to share her Student Reading Tracker Freebie from her TpT Store. You can download the file by clicking on the picture below.
If you download this freebie (there are lots more in Bri's store!), don't forget to leave Bri some feedback for her generosity. You can do this by clicking on "My Purchases" and finding the download in your "Free Downloads" tab.
Thanks, Bri, for participating in this week's Feature Teacher! I am filling up my Wish List with items from your store in case I ever move back into early primary.
