My friends call me Joanna or JoMo.
Why did you become a teacher?
My reasons are the obvious ones: I like kids, I want to change the world for the better, I want to touch the lives of others...blah blah gushy gushy.
I also wanted a career where I can pour out my creativity into fun lessons. Sure, I love glitter and who the heck doesn't love making High Five Turkeys during Thanksgiving, but I really wanted to marry the two, Fun and Learning, to make the best darn classroom in the world.
Movies like Dangerous Minds and Freedom Writers tug at my heart strings.
I miss First Grade!
