School you teach in: Ridge Lawn School in Chicago Ridge
Grade you teach: Kindergarten (5 and 6 year olds)
How long you have been teaching: This is my second year teaching, but first year teaching Kindergarten.
Favorite part about teaching: Not a day goes by where I don't laugh. The kids are hilarious without trying to be. At the beginning of the year when some students had a hard time remembering my name, I told them they could call me Miss Beautiful. Some of them still call me that lovely (and ever so suitable) name and have no idea why I think it's so funny.
Funny thing you have heard a student say: Kindergarteners say something funny every single day! It is just too hard to pinpoint one thing! One of my favorite memories from teaching 2nd grade was when I was going through journals and came across a list one student created. It stated their "likes" and "dislikes." The dislikes had me falling down laughing. The student's dislikes included: smart cars, Elvis, wet doorknobs, and Sasquatch. I never really thought about how disturbing wet doorknobs were until I read this particular journal entry.
