Wednesday's Featured Teacher and Freebie... Meet Heather Salsman

Meet Heather Salsman over at
Teaching Through Turbulence

What do you teach? And where? 
I teach Kindergarten Through 6th Grade Special Education for Emotional Disabilities and other kids with behaviors in Indiana - all elementary subjects and Social Skills.  I have some self-contained students, some pull-out for certain subjects, and others that I work with in general education for behavior.

What is one of your favorite memories in the classroom?
One of my most favorite memories has been watching my students grow in Social Skills over the past couple years with them.  When I started, I was not sure what I had gotten myself in to as they were physically fighting a lot.  Now, they consider each other family.  I was able to walk away at the end of this year and let them all figure out how to work though situations and plan things by themselves without any fighting!

What was your hardest experience while teaching? How did you overcome it.
My hardest experience has been being presented with new behaviors on a constant basis and having to overcome the physical and emotional stress that comes with it.  I have been very flexible and learned a lot throughout my teaching about dealing with different behaviors.  Blogging about ways to deal with different behaviors to help others with it and having a great support system of friends, family, and my blogging family has helped me overcome it all.

What advice would you give a new teacher or someone switching grade levels?
Look for ideas and then make them your own. There are so many teaching ideas out there that you can get from colleagues, teaching blogs, books, and more.  Find what you like and then make it work for you by adding in your own ideas and one spice to it.  Then, Be Flexible as you go along and make changes to meet your kids' needs.

Heather would like to offer all followers a
