Meet the Teacher

Hello and welcome to my blog!

This blog is a place where I like to share what I do inside my classroom as well as things to prepare for teaching. I have always been a fan of blogs and even started web design at age 12. I have had many websites and many blogs. I used to blog over at Darling Little Learners until I decided to make my home here at Jennuine Teaching. Why the switch? I made a big decision to leave not only my first school I've ever taught at, but also the only grade I've ever taught.

History lesson...
All through out my life I've always wanted to be a teacher. I transformed my bedroom closet into a classroom and my little sister was always my number one student. Whenever someone asked me what I was going to be when I grew up, the answer was always, TEACHER! I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted to teach. When everyone else in high school and community college were trying to figure out what it was that they wanted, I was just waiting until I could graduate and get my own classroom.

All throughout college I would browse teacher websites and look up to teachers like Angela Bunyi and Beth Newingham. I learned a lot from these bloggers and it even inspired me to make my own blog and try out some of their tips and tricks.

I finally graduated college with my bachelors in Elementary Education. I got my first job with my best friend and I taught there happily for six years in second grade. It was the best years of my life.

Present Day...
I have since then gotten my early childhood endorsement and I am currently working on my masters in Curriculum and Instruction. Since getting my childhood endorsement I am now able to teach kindergarten. Kindergarten is something I've always wanted to try so I decided to make the switch. Since I was already switching grade levels, I decided to transfer schools. This meant that I had to leave my BFF and that was hard, but I knew the decision was the right one for me. Now I am teaching kindergarten and a school that I LOVE!!

New job... new blog!!
Since everything is so new to me, I figured I would make a fresh start, not only with my career, but also my blog. So welcome to Jennuine Teaching and I hope you stay for a while!
