Share the Wealth Teacher-Author Spotlight- Devoted to Vocabulary Development

Holiday Greetings My Dear Friends,

I hope that this post finds you all happy, well, and ready for a wonderful holiday break. I know that as today was my last day until January 2nd, I am feeling that giddy and anxious feeling I always get around Christmas time. My kids are also gearing up. A family friend, my wife, and I spent a good deal of time today wrapping my children's gifts. So glad that part is done!

Well, enough about me and my holiday ramblings. Let's meet a fabulous teacher-author. I would like to introduce you to Ann Fausnight, the owner of Devoted to Vocabulary Development. Here is what Ann shared with me:
"I am enjoying my 35th year of teaching. This group is my 30th group of third graders. And they are amazing. Third grade makes me think of Goldilocks. The older kids didn't need me enough. The younger kids needed me too much. But third graders were just right! I still love it. I don't even think of retiring!
My favorite part of being a teacher is bringing new ideas to the team and creating products for those new ideas. I have never been one to decide I have found "THE" best way to teach something. I always feel the need to check out the newest approach and make it my own in some way."

As you can see from her Bio, Ann is a very experienced and amazing teacher. Even better is that her resources reflect all her knowledge and excitement earned over the past many years of teaching!
