The challenge for today is to share a little about your teaching idols.
One of my idols is Dr.Sherri Griffin. I had the pleasure of knowing her as a professor, but some might know her as an author of a great deal of curriculum for the Missouri Department of Conservation and her book My Big World of Wonder.
Sherri is one of the most passionate teachers I have ever had the pleasure to know, and I seriously think she might be superwoman. This woman teaches preschool 2 mornings a week AND a full 12 hours of college classes. That's a lot of work!It makes me tired just typing it!
I'm not the most confident person in the world, but Sherri made me feel like my ideas were valid, and if I worked hard enough I could be great! She pushed me to work really hard and think outside the box. Sherri was and still is one of my biggest teaching idols.
I also idolize all the amazing teacher bloggers out there. There are so many AWESOME teachers out there that work so hard to help their students achieve great things. I'm especailly inspired by those who integreate technology so seamlessly into their classrooms!
Thank You to all my teaching idols! Keep on doin' what you do! You're Awesome!
