The Treasures of Teaching
Write a brief description of yourself
Hi ! My name is Sandrell La Shaun Brown. I am a graduate of Florida
Memorial College. I enjoy teaching fourth grade at Pine Lake Elementary
and looking forward to the upcoming school year. Iam presently attending
Nova Southeastern University in pursuit of a Masters Degree in P-K / Primary
Education. My future goal in life is to own and operate a children center.
The Best Moments of this Year
In my class this year we had several wonderful moments but as a teacher
I feel that the best moments are when students actual apply what they have
learned. One thing we did this year after studying fractions was that the
students made a fraction fruit salad where they could see and understand
why fractions are important in life. Secondly, we had a class campagin
where students were elected for various offices.They wrote and gave speeches,
created posters and buttons and went from class to class persuading students
to vote. The students were able to understand and see that voting is important
and a way of communicating their needs for the future. Oh, by the way I
had the student with the top score on the Florida Writes Test !!!
What I Learned This Year
This year I learned that Iam the tool that makes the students want to strive
to do their best. If they see how important you want them to learn or even
behave they would try to achieve that goal to make you proud but I always
remind my students that you have to want to do it for yourself not someone
A Letter to My Students
I just wanted you to know...
that you need to always believe in yourself and strive to do your best
because you are the only one that can write your own ticket toward success.
