In Six Words

Like many of you, my inbox has been inundated with emails regarding budget proposals, AIMS testing preparations, DIBELS schedules, and meeting approval dates. It is that time of year.

Tonight I received an email of a different sort from my principal. She shared a link to a blog post asking readers to share their thoughts in six words to the question, What does it mean to be a great teacher?

Perhaps you might like to take a break during these busy days to read a few of the responses.

The winning words made me think about what my students might say of their experiences over the years. It might even be a good homework assignment for the whole family.  

How would you answer in just six words?

I remember her fifty years later.

My classroom teaching experience has been in Tucson’s urban public schools with grades first through fifth. Beginning my eleventh year of teaching, I am the Outdoor Learning Coordinator at a Project Based Learning primary school. I am a National Board Certified Teacher (ECGen) with a BA in Elementary Education and MA in Teaching and Teacher Education from the University of Arizona.

My introduction to teaching occurred during a National Outdoor Leadership School semester which led me to work as an outdoor educator traveling throughout the United States and South America. I am interested in connecting with other educators and those interested in the changes in schools with education policy.
