My favorite children’s book or author… I have many favorites, but I especially love the authors Jane Yolen, Mo Willems, Kate DiCamillo, and Rachel Isadora.
What do associate teachers at BDS contribute… So much! I went through an associate program and I think the mentor teachers were more intentional in their teaching, lesson planning, and overall understanding of the curriculum. Having an associate is a constant reminder that teaching is an evolving profession and there’s more value in being an observer and learner than in being an expert.
If I could give a child one quality it would be… confidence.
