Wednesday's Featured Teacher and Freebie....Meet Sara Oberhieide

Meet Sara Oberheide over at 
Innovative To The Core

What do you teach? And where? 
I teach 5th graders in Baldwin City, Ks.

What is one of your favorite memories in the classroom?
My favorite memory was a few years back when one of my previous students came back to visit. We had a great visit and she said that I was her favorite teacher because she always felt loved and secure in my class. Very touching moment for me and one of the reasons we all continue in this field of work.

What was your hardest experience while teaching? How did you overcome it.
The hardest experience is working through all of the red tape to help students who desperately need help. I find it difficult waiting a month or two for students to qualify for an IEP or receive title help. I just want to find ways or an extra person to help the student immediately. I have a great relationship with our special education staff so typically we can find ways to get extra support to those kids that need help.

What advice would you give a new teacher or someone switching grade levels?
I would tell any new teacher to never stop learning. You will NEVER have all the answers for all kids, so listen to your peers around you for help and advice. I love to learn innovative ideas to support students in my classroom!

Sara would like to offer all followers a
