I always want to hear how they are doing in school, how their families are doing, what they have been up to, etc. I love teaching because... I love spending time with kids! What I want most for my students is... to look back at their time in school and remember it as being one of the best parts of their lives. view image

Name: Sara Dickens Grade Level: Kindergarten Years of experience: 24 Hometown: Sullivan, IL Education: University of Illinois Favorite band: Rascal Flatts Favorite movie: E.T. Favorite sports teams: Cubs Favorite color: Purple Favorite subject: Math Favorite teaching memory: I will never forget when we were learning about the heart. We were running in place for one minute to make our heart beat faster. When the minute was up, I told the kids to be really quiet and try to listen and feel their heartbeat. After a couple of seconds, one little boys blurts out in a panic, "Mrs. Boyer!! Mrs. Boyer!! I can't feel my heart!! I think it needs new batteries!!" I quickly helped him find his heartbeat, but on the inside I was laughing hysterically!!! Kids really do say the darndest things!!! I love teaching because... I absolutely LOVE watching kids grow, and change, and learn!!! I LOVE it when I see that light bulb turn on and they finally "get" something they have been working so hard on. I LOVE the confidence that beams from their smiles! I LOVE to help make a positive difference in their lives! (And I ESPECIALLY LOVE all of the HUGS I have received over the years....definitely one of my favorite parts of teaching Kindergarten!!) What I want most for my students is... to have SO MUCH FUN learning that they don't even know they are doing it!!! I want them to embrace a LOVE FOR LEARNING and to know that SCHOOL IS FUN!!! view image

Name: Jake Haegen Grade Level/Subject: Kindergarten Years of experience: 16 Hometown: Sullivan Favorite band: 311 Favorite movie: Point Break Favorite sports teams: St. Louis Cardinals and Fighting Illini Favorite color: Green Favorite subject: Science Favorite teaching memory: I have several, but here are some of my favorites. I once explained a math problem to a kid and his face lit up like he understood! I said, “So, do you get it?” He said, “No, but your breath stinks!” Another time we were learning about the color white and a student seemed confused. So, I asked, “What color are my teeth?” She said, “Yellow!” And finally, my mother-in-law asked a student how they liked kindergarten. She said, “Mr. Haegen is a real good teacher, ain’t he?” I love teaching because... I’m a kid at heart and kids like to have fun! What I want most for my students is...to love to come to school!
