Welcome to my blog! I am Alexa Westby and I was born in raised in a small town in Saskatchewan. I grew up with my two parents, two brothers, and we now have a dog named Winston. I have just recently finished my Bachelor of Education Degree at the University of Regina. During my time at the U of R, I specialized in Elementary Education. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to become a teacher.
I had my internship experience in a Grade 2 classroom and pre-internship in a Grade 4 classroom. I believe I have had lots of experience with different types of technology for teaching during my experiences. Some programs that I have used are Seesaw, Mimio, Smart Technology, GoNoodle, ClassDojo, Prodigy, Mathletics, and RAZ Kids. Most of my technology experience is with Apps or websites that I would actually use in a classroom with my students.
I do not have much experience with myself blogging, however I have followed various educational blogs before. I find these blogs give me lots of great tips for all areas of teaching. Since I will be a first year teacher next year, I think educational blogs are another great resource of support that I will want to access. One blog that I have been looking at a lot is Core Inspiration. This blog has lots of great information about setting up a classroom, classroom management, classroom resources, etc. I look forward to my adventure blogging this semester!
