Education to the Core provides me with laughs throughout, or at the end of the day when I am checking Facebook. The page provides memes, videos, tips, shares from other educational pages and inspiration for primary teachers. I have taken many screen shots of many ideas that the page has shared. My favourite thing about this page is the crafts that are shared. She is always posting crafts that are in season. I am someone who struggles with coming up with ideas for art so this page has been a great help! Education to the Core, Gilbert, Arizona. 432,703 likes · 83,738 talking about this. Hi!

Sometimes teachers are put in situations that they can help but laugh. If they don't laugh they may cry or get angry. Teacher memes are what every teaching is thinking, but don't say. I enjoy looking at memes to give me a chuckle even after the toughest days. Some people enjoy wine, and others memes-. I prefer both! Classroom Memes for every educational situation, including student expectations, teacher problems, and more!
Brandon University is where it all began... I was leaving home at 18 and very nervous. I never thought I would make it through my first year. I then made friends who felt like family at Brandon University. Some were in my classes and some were not. These specific people made my time away from home that much easier. To this day, I have no idea how I survived my undergrad and coming out with an average GPA. Brandon University is my "go-to" link lately. Whether that is for tuition, placement information or class registration. Soon I will not be focuses on this link as I will have a new school as my priority (hopefully where I am teaching), but the last five years BU has been my life. I hope to stay in contact with many of the staff and students at Brandon University as I move on. However, I have no idea where my future will take me. I could easily be back at Brandon University and pursuing my Masters in Education!
Everyone has their form of therapy, right? Mine would be shopping. I love Amazon for books, workout supplies and clothes. When looking for books, I am usually buying used as it is cheaper and I have always lucked out in receiving the quality I expected. I am usually on Amazon once a week looking for more used books for my students. Between Amazon and garage sales, I plan to build my classroom library and allow for lots of choice! Amazon has also opened me to new professional reads as well. My most recent read has been "I Wish My Teacher Knew" by Kyle Schwartz. I would recommend this book to any teacher, especially student teachers. I also have a book in the mail that was recommended my the Principal in my next placement; "Visible Learning for Literacy, Grades K-12: Implementing the Practices That Work Best to Accelerate Student Learning". I am excited to do a book study with the staff at Smith Jackson School. Thank you Amazon for always supplying the books and other supplies I need (or not, but one can never have too many books)!

Teachers Pay Teachers is a community of millions of educators who come together to share their work, their insights, and their inspiration with one another. Who wouldn't love that? It is amazing! The feedback is so beneficial before buying the lessons or units. I wouldn't say I have a collection of lessons from Teachers Pay Teachers, but I know many who do. Once I have a classroom or a certain grade for a year, I will definitely spend more time on Teachers Pay Teachers. Right now, I like to think of original ideas for my lessons. However, It is nice to see teachers work as a team, and I am so happy to be apart of a community. I love the app and am usually on it before bed looking for different ideas!
Edutopia is a great resource for all educators, but I particularly like reading about differentiated instructions and assessment in this particular resource. No teacher is ever done learning. Teachers are constantly trying to discover new ways to accommodate their students, or new forms of assessment. I personally believe that these are the two areas I would like to develop, so I will continue to look on Edutopia!
I mean which teacher doesn't love Pinterest? Prior to being a teacher my Pinterest boards were all food, clothes and workouts. Now my Pinterest board is all art ideas, math games, science experiments and classroom bulletin board ideas! I am usually on Pinterest once a day to check out what is new. Pinterest is a resource I will always get different ideas from.
OneNote is an amazing tool that I adore! OneNote use to be that icon on my computer that I did not know how to use; until last year when Devon Caldwell introduced it. For Devon's class, we had to organize all our material on OneNote for a percentage of our grade. She also provided us with some ideas on how to use OneNote. One suggestion was keeping our assessments on there and then report card writing would be much easier. I have the app on my phone and it is easy to upload pictures or make quick notes. I think in my future placement, I will try to make all my tabs students' names and give this idea a try!
Smith-Jackson Ukrainian Bilingual Elementary School is where my school career all began. While being apart of a school that feels like home, I was able to learn parts of a new language. Then and now, learning about the Ukrainian culture is a priority and accepting the diverse students within the schools. I am fortunate to now teach at Smith Jackson, both as a substitute and student teacher. Although there are new students, staff and ideas, the culture remains. I am excited to be back as this school is where I was inspired to become an educator. My kindergarten and grade one teacher, Jan Sirski, made teaching look like the best possible career. She took us on as her own children and genuinely cared for her students. She brought much of the Ukrainian culture into her classroom, but also fun activities and a sense of community. I am going to strive to be the next Mrs. Sirski and influence children the way she influenced me!
Mountain View School Division is where I would like to pursue my teaching career. I do not have a specific school in mind, but I would like to be in the division. I have completed all my practicums there, and some profession development sessions. MVSD has a wide range of resources. I have utilized the Pd Center, as well as the numeracy and literacy coaches--all are fantastic and have helped me grow as a teacher. I am so excited to be back and working with such an amazing division. Mountain View School Division will provide an inspiring, respectful and safe learning environment where every student is valued, nurtured and enabled to realize his/her full potential.
