EXPERIENCE

Mrs. Briley's Top Ten...

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT TEACHING

10.  Writing whiteboards, chalkboards, overhead and LCD projectors is so much fun!

9.    It's an excuse to read and own many, many, many books.

8.    I!  Love!  School Supplies!  Sharp, pointy pencils, fun sticky notes, and colorful pens RULE.

7.    I am always learning and learning and learning.

6.    I get to read out loud, and hear other people read out loud.

5.   I'm not only allowed to, I'm expected to help everyone  to be more grammatically correct.  It's not that I really enjoy correcting grammar, it's just that just can't stop myself from doing it.

4.   It's so wonderful to work with other teachers who love to teach and learn, and Lincoln Middle School is full of them.

3.  Getting to know my fascinating students is one of the best parts of my job.

2.  Reading my students' writing is so inspiring!

...and, the number one thing that I absolutely love about teaching is:

1.  I get to see the spark in a child's eye when they learn, understand, or create a new idea every day!
