Hi, parents and students of Mrs. McBride's fourth grade class!  I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to those of you I haven't met.  My name is Sarah Standridge, and I am a teaching intern from the Master of Arts in Teaching program at UCA.  Mrs. McBride has been kind enough to bring me in to her wonderful class from now until the end of April and give me the behind the scenes scoop about how to be a fabulous teacher like her.  I am having a great experience and learning so much!

I may not look like your average student teacher when you meet me, since I'm older.  I have two kids, ages 13 and 8, and I stayed home with them for most of their early years.  I have a degree in English so I love teaching reading and writing, and I have volunteered and worked part-time in education throughout the years.  I am getting to know all of the children in the class, and I am so impressed.  They are all amazing in their own unique ways, and I am learning a lot from them as well as from Mrs. McBride.

I hope to get a chance to meet all of you soon, and I look forward to continuing to work with Mrs. McBride and your impressive children!
