Angela,

Thank you so much for your website, words of inspiration and tips. I am not sure how I stumbled upon your site, but I am so grateful for all of the information you have shared. I am just starting out as an ESL/Bilingual consultant in Illinois (very high need area), and your website has inspired me to keep moving forward.

Thanks again and best wishes,
Robyn

Hey! Thanks so much for reading my blog teachonpurpose and for all of your encouraging comments. I recently moved the blog and forgot to contact my followers! It is now at iteachonpurpose.blogspot.com (it was the only way to disassociate it from my personal email and connect it to my professional email-yikes). Just didn’t want to leave with no word!
Thanks for all you do!

I am real impressed with the stations/centers you have on your site. I was wondering if you have the task cards (what is on them) that are used for the Museum Center or where I can find them.

Thank you for your help.

Hi, Vicki! Unfortunately I only have the cards in hard copies. I will try to re-type them so they’re available for download. It’s on my to-do list. :-)

Hi Angela,

Thank you for sharing the “Worlds Easiest Token System!” I am a school counselor at a PreK-2 building with approximately 800 students so I am always looking for new behavior management systems to share with our teachers. I can’t wait to pass it on!

Sincerely,

Brie

Hi Angela,
I like the token system you use for behavior. I used a large chart with names and cards. Your system clears a place on my wall. I always had ‘lunch bunch’ on Fridays. Lunch with teacher and play games. I would take five name cards (tokens) out of the bag, and those children had lunch with the teacher. It was a big motivator and didn’t cost anything but time. However, it was always interesting to hear what the kids talked about!

Hello Angela,

I stumbled upon your website while surfing through teaching ideas. I am a Christian Studies major, and began homeschooling our now 7 year old daughter in Kindergarten due to life threatening allergies and asthma. I always looked forward to her experience in Elementary school, yet when she had a life threatening reaction the summer before Kindergarten, I had to take a few steps back and consider the unconventional homeschool approach. We have really enjoyed it, and the possibilities within our curriculum are endless. I love how you include the importance of your faith and how it should affect your interaction with the classroom, thank you for sharing all of that encouragement, your light shines through!

I am entering into teaching the second grade, and through my research I am at a loss for how to grade assignments entering into this year. Does the second grade go with the incomplete/complete, smilie faces, etc on papers, or is this the year to begin grading on an actual letter grade scale? How many assignments per week receive an actual grade mark? State requirnments leave that option open to us, yet I would like to go as closely as possible to what is done in the public schools.

Thank you so much for your website, I believe that God is using you in a remarkable way to be an encouragement to others seeking the best for their students!

Many Blessings,
Brandi

Angela, I am interested in connecting my 4th grade students with students in other states via technology resources. If time allows, would you mind sharing contacts you are aware of that I might make with other teachers? My students love the work we have completed in the past, so I would love to stretch their boundaries….the box that they live in so that they can see that their world extends beyond the city limits of our rural community. Many thanks, garry

Hi Angela,
I am a Bachelor of Science graduate from Kenya and has been teaching since 2001. Currently, I am pursuing a Postgraduate Diploma in Education from a local university. My wish is to be a consultant in education. Can I start it now or finish my PGDE first? Is there any other special training that I need? Looking forward to your response.

21 Angela Watson December 14, 2012 at 11:45 am

Hi, John. I would think you can begin consulting whenever you feel you have the experience and education to qualify you to do so. You’re an experienced teacher and I’m sure you have lots of ideas to share with others. You can start by presenting at conferences and conducting PD work within your district, and build from there. All the best to you!

Hello Angela,

Your information for interviwing is a wonderful find for me. I am currently looking to get back into the teaching field after taking 9 years off to raise my family. I was a teacher for 6 1/2 years and received my masters in administration and supervisor during my time off.

What advice would you offer someone like myself? I am anxious about returing to teaching after all that has changed in the field, but also excited to get back in.

Thank you,

Joanna

Hi, Joanna! You might find it helpful to sub for awhile to get a feel for which grade levels you now prefer, and to gauge the type of changes that have occurred in schools. Volunteering (maybe at your children’s schools?) might also be helpful. All the best to you!

Angela,
I am so stressed about NB! I have 19 days left and I am second guessing everything. Your website is so helpful. I am going for Early Adolescent English Language Arts. I wish there was a online group like you had with your Elementary Ed. peeps! I feel like a failure, even though I know that I am an awesome teacher…it is so hard to put it all on paper. :(

Hi, I look at your site frequently and have tried so many different things. My next school year will be a challenging one. I will have a 3/4 combined class and, although students have been carefully placed to avoid a large gap between the two grades, I am still bound by the demands of common core and TPEP. I will also have a 4th grade student diagnosed with MR (She is at about the 1st grade level) and is known for not doing any work and is constantly getting out of seat to either crawl around on the floor or to hug the teacher even during the middle of a lesson. Do you have any tips on incentives so this child can manage herself? Any tips on juggling 2 grade levels? I had a rough year this year; I could use some advice for a smoother year.
