My Mississippi Teacher Corps Experience has been a wild rollercoaster ride, with some the highest peaks and the lowest valleys I have ever experienced in my life. I have learned valuable information about public education in Mississippi; I will hold this information closely and let it guide my decisions in... Continue reading

Letter to the first years. Dear first years, When I first started teaching: I thought coming into this program that teaching would be an easy task, but it’s not. I thought that I would walk into my first classroom and be like the great teachers that I have had in... Continue reading

Summer Training The summer has gone by so quickly. I can’t believe that I have taught for two months now. Summer training was very beneficial in many ways. I really enjoyed being able to teach, even if it was to four students, and realizing my strengths and weaknesses in the... Continue reading

There are many pros and cons of being a part of the Mississippi Teacher Corps. I wouldn’t change my experience during the last two years for anything, but if I would have known some things that I know now, I may have thought twice about wanting to be a teacher... Continue reading

As I sit in front of the classroom I look out at my homeroom. I have one student combing her hair, one has already been kicked out for being disrespectful, two sleeping, and the rest either reading or fake reading, I don’t want to figure out which they are doing.... Continue reading

The Start of Something New I have been a little skeptical about beginning a boy’s soccer program at Byhalia High. Last year, I was curious about the amount of students that would be interested, so I had a few “open” practices. I announced that both males and females were welcome... Continue reading

I partly agree with Josh’s views on the state test. I do believe that testing is necessary, and without tests teachers and students are able to slide through the year without any troubles. There are many teachers at my school, mainly those that teach half credit, non-core classes, that do... Continue reading

Kids say the darndest things, don’t they? I was having a little trouble thinking about what I wanted to write about, so I decided that I would update my quotes. Earlier this year I posted a blog on some of the best quotes that I received from my students. I... Continue reading

I have had incredible ups and downs this month in my teaching life. I’ve had a few of my best teaching days, a few of my saddest, a few surprising, and a few of my worst days…but hey, that’s teaching, right? Most of this year has been miserable; all in... Continue reading

Dear 2nd years, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I began this program. I had the assumption that the members of this program would be lame, but I was quickly proven wrong when I showed up at our first get together at Northgate. When I saw... Continue reading

I am considered a “nice” and “fun” teacher, which I like, but I need to be much more consistent in the implementation of my rules and procedures. My four rules this year were: 1. Raise your hand to speak or stand. 2. Keep your hands feet and legs to yourself.... Continue reading

I’m not even sure how I feel about my first year of teaching. Do I love teaching? No, absolutely not. But, do I love my students? Yes. (At least most of them) I have always been a firm believer in the saying, “find a job you love and you will... Continue reading

As hard and demanding as my first year of teaching was, I did have some successes. I have a few students, in reference to academics, that come to mind. Although I feel as though I was not as an effective teacher as I could have been, I still had many... Continue reading

Failure: I sometimes feel like that word defines my first year of teaching. There are many stories from my first year of teaching that can fall into the category of failure. I think that I failed to be the best/most effective teacher that I could have been. There are no... Continue reading

The pressures of year two have been completely different from year one. I am now primarily teaching English II, instead of English I. We are in our 2nd full week of school and I have already had more meetings and visits from my administration than I did in all of... Continue reading

This year, as a staff, teachers were supposed to “wow” their students on the first two days of school. Our principal thought that it would get the kids excited about school. Day 1 began with corralling all of the students into the gym while “pump up” music was being played.... Continue reading
