A Little Bit About Me

My full name is Casey Lynne Adams. I was born in Hendersonville, North Carolina. I'm a southern girl born and bred. I'm fortunate to have my mom and dad, as well as an older brother whose name is Kyle. I also have 2 cats: Buster and Hova, as well as a dog: Cody. I love the beach and hanging out with friends as well as painting in my spare time. I am also fortunate to have found the love of my life and can't wait to start our life together.

Education and Teaching Philosophy

I am majoring in Interdiciplinary Studies with a teaching emphasis in Pre-K thru 6th. I am really interested in teaching 1st grade. I had experience being a teachers aide for both a high school class and a first grade class which I fell in love with, they became "my kids." I believe that a good teacher takes the time to encorporate the special needs of individual students while paying attention to the group as a whole. For example, when I worked with the kids I had the pleasure in helping to teach them to read. The kids were separated into two groups kids who were doing really well and kids who were struggling a bit. I took the kids who were struggling one on one and got to simplify it and break the reading down into ways that the could comprehend and each kid was different so with each kid I had to form a new way of teaching the material. It was a challenge but it was fun and allowed me to learn more about each one of the kids as an individual. It's all about balancing the fun with the necessary material and making it more interesting to the kids. A good teacher is up for a challenge and never gives up on a student.
