Teachin’ UP on a TUESDAY
So I’m bringing y’all my first teacher profile on this Teachin’ Up on a Tuesday! This teacher profile features one of my besties, McKenzie Glenn. She teaches 4th grade right here in Charlotte for Charlotte Mecklenburg County (CMS). I came up with just a couple questions to ask her about her teaching experience(s) and you will find her answers along with my questions in the teacher profile below. I hope to get many more questions answered by other teachers and give educators a place to shine because it is very important what y’all do on a daily basis and I (along with many others) want you to know that you are appreciated & what you do matters!!
If y’all know anything about the North Carolina Public School system, especially CMS, you know that when teaching gets brought up there are a lot of elderly women saying “I swanee, bless their hearts!” and for good reason – so here’s to all the educators out there, you da bomb!
• Enjoy the FIRST teacher profile featuring Ms. Glenn •
Ms. Glenn – 4th grade – Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools
1 – What is your favorite part of teaching? “Making connections with students and being a constant in their life – which is something they all really need.”
2 – What is your biggest challenge? “I think I would say the hardest part is always being on it 24-7. You have to be on it all-day-every-day no matter what and some days it is exhausting.”
3 – What is your go-to-teacher-fashion statement? “The easiest & go-to now is a pair of black skinny pants/denim & boots!”
And there you have it folks, a short & sweet teacher profile for you on this Teachin’ UP on a Tuesday! I would absolutely love to hear more about your teaching experiences and/or if you have any questions or comments. Funny and inspirational stories are always welcome so feel free to e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org), leave a comment below, and/or throw up an Insta and use the hashtag #teachinuponatuesday and tag me, @missetayla 🙂
As always, spread the missEtayla love by sharing this blog & post with your family and friends.
