Dr. Childs’ Two-Cent Tuesdays

What is my “Two-Cents”

I recently began a new journey of putting more creative and helpful instructional tips related to literacy and the classroom environment on my social media accounts (as I have a small, but growing network of teachers that I interact with online).  For the past couple of weeks, I have shared “Teacher Tip Tuesdays” on my Instagram account.  However, since the name “Teacher Tip” is so common, I decided to rename these helpful bits Two-Cent Tuesdays.

Over the course of five years, I have transitioned completely to teaching in higher education, but my heart will always be in the K-12 setting– where I spent eleven years working primarily with fifth graders.  The love I have for building an inclusive and welcoming classroom environment will not go away.  Though the testing culture within my state hindered some of my creativity as an educator, I always found ways to make learning relevant and valuable.  Because I still have the need to put my creative ideas to use, I decided to create Two-Cent Tuesdays.

What topics will I cover?

  • Literacy Learning/Strategies
  • Culturally Relevant Pedagogy
  • The Classroom Environment
  • Parent Involvement
  • English Language Learners
  • Incorporating Technology in Instruction

Be sure to follow me on Instagram, as well as subscribe to my YouTube channel, where from time to time I will further elaborate on my tips, share additional resources, and have giveaways related to all things education!
