This month we are excited to feature Julia Marthia, an English teacher who works at Nichols School, an independent school in Buffalo, New York. This New York state native is a former colleague, who worked at Kilmer Middle School in Fairfax County for many years. There she built a reputation as a creative, engaging teacher, who was recognized by her colleagues as Kilmer's Teacher of the Year in 2006. She was also received the Al and Winnie Hodgson Award for Teaching Excellence (for her recognition and appreciation of student diversity inside and outside of the classroom). One of Julia's strengths is building relationships with students through story telling. We are excited to share part of her education journey with you in this month's Take10.
Librarian Lara Ivey is an inspiring, energetic force. Just four years into her library career, she won the James Regional Librarian of the Year Award for 2018 from the Virginia Association of School Librarians (VAASL) and serves as a leader on projects for both VAASL and the national organization, the American Association of School Librarians. We are excited to share a bit of her story in this week's BubbleUp Take10.
This week's post marks our first ever BubbleUp Classroom Take10. We are super excited to bring this new feature to our BubbleUp Classroom readers. As you know, we believe to our core that when teachers share great ideas bubbleup. In that spirit, we'll be doing a
Q and A every month with one educator. We'll ask each educator the same TEN questions and see what amazing things we learn on along the way.
We're beginning our Take10 journey with educator Jes McCutchen. She's also the creator of Planner Flotsam (Instragram: @PlannerFlotsam). At the end of this post, she's offering a fantastic free give-away for teachers. Here's sneak peak of the charming planner stickers she's designed just for our BubbleUp readers.
