Directed Drawings?

Directed drawings are a step by step approach to drawing something.  The teacher is able to guide, or direct, students in the steps to create a drawing.  In addition to the teacher leading the lesson, directions can be independent with a video tutorial or a paper copy.

I’m Jennifer White

All About me, First and Kinder Blue Skies!  I began teaching 25+ years ago after graduating from  the University of Montevallo with a degree in Early Childhood. Later, I went on to acquire my Master’s Degree at the University of Alabama. Meanwhile, I’ve been fortunate enough to achieve my National Board Teacher certification twice over the last 20 years! I mean, who does it twice?

I am married and have three awesome children: Emma, Jack, and Maggie. Jack is on the spectrum (i.e. formerly Asperger’s) and I have struggled through the years to adjust my thinking and navigate the world with him. You can learn more about that initial struggle on my blog.

Teaching in a happy classroom means that you love your job and the place you come to every working day! Although I have recently moved to second grade, I have taught kindergarten (my heart), first grade and also third grade. In the end,I want you to know that I love my job!
