Sarah Jones

My name is Sarah, and I am a student at UT Tyler. I am super excited about becoming a teacher and hopefully, I will be teaching grades 1st-3rd grade. I love these age groups because they are independent but yet still so excited about learning. I have two toddlers that rule my world outside of schooling and they keep me busy! Why I want to become a teacher is because I want to make a difference in someone's life and I feel that being a teacher you are constantly making a difference.

When teaching science how broad should you have the topic, such as when teaching the moon phases or seasons? I'm not sure how much information at a time I should give my students. Any information can and will help.

5 Safety with using STEAM
This is a great article for teachers to read! This article had great tips on what to do and what not to do when it comes to safety and it even stated some additional alternatives. For example, instead of using glass, use plastic, instead of having the students use sharp scissors, have precut materials so they don't have to handle anything sharp. This article is a great reminder of what teachers should already be doing in their classrooms to protect their students and keep them safe. So heads up... read labels, know how to to use a fire extingshuier, have safety aprons and or goggles and so on. Also, if safety requirements cannot be fulfilled the activity should not take place.
