Cathy and I love what we do in providing free resources for teachers everywhere, and sometimes we also get to do things on the sites that fill our hearts in a very personal way as well. This is one of those times. I am excited to introduce Annie Sarno as our final Corner Spotlight! Annie is my niece and is currently student teaching at Promise Road Elementary in Noblesville, Indiana. Annie attended Indiana University where she studied to become a teacher and was an IU cheerleader, among other activities. (Go IU! Fight! Fight! Fight! Sorry…couldn’t help myself. Sorry Cathy! Purdue grad…)
Annie has always had a gift for working with kids (well…anyone to be honest.) Her smile, personality and patience have always lead our family to believe that she would follow the calling of teaching children in some capacity. It was no surprise to any of us that she eventually chose education. In addition to her student teaching right now, she is also coaching the Fishers High School freshmen cheerleaders right here at our local high school. (Hope that’s still the case a little over ten years from now when my daughter, Addie gets to high school!)
While at IU Annie participated in some field experiences at local elementary schools. At one school she was required to teach a social studies lesson about productive resources. She agreed to share the Power Point she created with all of you. It contains an explanation of productive resources as well as definitions and examples of capital, natural and human resources. After the initial slides, there are 13 review slides with pictures where students can test their knowledge. You’ll find her link below along with a few simple assessment resources we created to go with her Power Point.
