2nd Grade Teacher (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, AR – April 26, 2017
Arnold Drive Elementary is a great place to work. Our administrator is phenomenal! She supports and mentors us and always has our student's best interest at heart! The hardest part of my job is making sure that I meet every child right where they are. I pride myself on creating highly differentiated lessons so that every student is challenged but is given the tools to be successful. My typical day at work is very busy. I have 23 seven and eight years olds that keep me moving! We start off with math in the morning. Depending on what we are learning and where we are in that learning, we will either do a lesson that has technology and/or manipulatives incorporated, or we might do centers where I meet with small groups for enrichment and intervention. Then we move on to Literacy. My literacy block is cross-curricular. I incorporate science and social studies, along with language arts, reading, and writing. Sprinkled in throughout the day is lunch, pull-out, and recess.
