My name is Aerin Bentley and I am so happy to be
a second grade teacher at
This is my fifteenth year teaching, and my thirteenth at GREEN
.I have a B.A. in ART and an M.A.T. in Elementary Education. I received both degrees at Austin College, in Sherman, Texas.
I currently hold certification in 1st-8th grade as well as in Special Education and ESL. I am current with all of my training in Gifted and Talented.
In my spare time, I enjoy shopping, trying to keep plants alive, and spending time with friends, family, especially my husband, Alex and our baby boy Dex
I believe that learning can be fun--we have so much energy flowing through our room. As you walk into our classroom you can just tell that something great is going on; you can sense learning. I am a facilitator of learning and I love it! Seeing their eyes widen and the light bulbs going on is my reward.
My classroom is student centered. All activities are designed to benefit them and their learning needs. When we learn things in school it is important to see the connections to the "real world."
We have such a diverse exchange of personalities and experiences. We help each other make those connections. I see every child as an individual and appreciate their own unique learning styles. Coming to school each day isn't hard when you're surrounded with such amazing people.
Can you tell I absolutely love my awesome second graders?
EVERY CHILD SHOULD:
*take pride in work and achievements
*finish what they start
*have fun learning
