I enjoy teaching because children view the world as something new and wonderful. I like to share their view and always see each day as a new and wonderful one.
My favorite book is "Old Black Witch." My first grade teacher read it to my class. She then invited us in early one morning to enjoy the pancakes that are a part of the story. Old Black Witch is actually a good witch, but kind of grouchy. She helps a mother and her son when robbers try to steal money from their tea house.
I read, read, read, and then read some more. My greatest interest is langauge. I enjoy looking in the dictionary to find out where words came from.
Irish in not the usual public school. There is diversity and a focus on language. We learn in Spanish and English. We play in Spanish and English. What could be better for a person who loves langauge?
