I taught full-day kindergarten for 14 years and have spent the last 2 years as a kindergarten and first grade strategist working all over my district. I am excited to say that this school year I will be back in my own kindergarten classroom!! While I loved working with kinder and first grade teachers and their students, I missed having a class of my own.
I graduated from Dallas Baptist University in 2008 with a masters in curriculum and instruction. I am currently working on my doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction at the University of North Texas. I hope to one day teach at the university level. I love what I do and want to pass on all that I have learned over the years to fellow teachers and students!
At the start of every school year I debate over what type of name tags to use because I feel like they are always such a hassle. Stickers come off too easy and kids play with them and peel them off when they shouldn't and yarn name tags are even worse because the yarn gets all tangled up, kids pull the cut out off the yarn, and they constantly twist and play with the yarn. So... I was super excited to find Fran's latest post on the Art of Making Name Tags!! For more information on how to make these name tags and for Fran's free download click here. I went to Walmart today and bought everything I needed to make them!! Thanks Fran for the tip.
