Hello From Heather!

Hi!  I am Heather! I blog over at Teaching Through Turbulence. I am very excited about this collaborative blog and having so many great ideas and resources from a lot of amazing bloggers right here in one place!

Teaching Through Turbulence

Blogging Experience:
 
I started my blogging experience at the beginning of June last year and I have loved every minute of it!  You see.. I had a problem...  I was a teaching blog stalker ummm... constant follower.  I always had my IPAD in my hands or my computer in my lap reading lots of amazing blogs.  I just didn't see many blogs about behavior.. and my husband was always telling me to find a hobby (LOL!).. so I decided I would try this blogging thing and try to help others with behaviors, classroom management, and differentiation in the classroom.

Since taking off on this experience, I have started a Facebook Fan Page, Twitter Account (@teachthrough), and a TPT Store.  The TPT Store will hopefully be growing this summer.



That is my blogging experiences in a nutshell, so here is professional and then personal.

Professional:

I am currently a Special Education Teacher for students in Kindergarten through 6th Grade with Emotional Disabilities and other students with behaviors in Indianapolis, IN.  I have also had experience as a Developmental Preschool teacher and a Kindergarten Teacher, both with many special needs students.  Through my practicum experiences and student teaching at Indiana State University and my jobs, I have experience with all grade levels preschool through high school and many eligibility areas.

Personal:

This is me:

This is me and my wonderful husband at our wedding in 2010:


And our 2 wonderful dogs, Mia and Kodak:

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and learning from each other!

  1. I can't wait to read more about your school life! I also teach students with emotional and behavior disorders. I only have grades 3 and 4- self contained room. My school is a separate facility for grades k - 12 and all students have significant behavior disorders. I can't imagine having grades k - 6th!

    1. I would love to have just 2 grades. I have some pretty significant babies also and was working with 45 kids at the end of this school year. It is a lot!! We do have a separate facility for even more significant than I work with (although some have started with me before going there, so I have worked with them.) Glad you are here!

  2. K-6th! Wow! How do you get all of your curriculum in. I am your newest follower and can't wait to read what you have to say. I am a special education teacher, I teach grades 3-6, moderate to severe disabilities. I started blogging a few months ago and am addicted! At least now I'm not only "stalking" but am also contributing :)

    1. It feels great to not only be a stalker but to be a contributor, doesn't it? Glad you are here! It is very very difficult and time-consuming to plan all the different curriculum, but we do it somehow between my para and I. It takes a lot of very precise scheduling of kids activities.
