Ms. Anna Sasser

Hello everyone! My name is Anna Sasser. I am a new teacher and this year will be my first full year as a teacher. I am extremely glad that I get to teach my first year at Glendale Kenly Elementary. I student taught in 3rd grade for the fall semester with Mrs. Coley, and after graduation accepted an EC resource position for the spring. I enjoyed both of these experiences and I have learned so much as a beginning teacher here so far. I am very excited about getting the opportunity to teach third grade this year! While attending college, I worked as a tutor at Rosewood Elementary and I spent most of my day with third grade. It is my favorite grade to teach! I graduated from East Carolina University in December 2018 with my Bachelors in Elementary Education. I have an add-on license in Special Education. I am also working toward getting my Masters in Elementary Education with a concentration in Teacher Leadership. I love teaching and I strive to be the best teacher I can be! My favorite subjects to teach are Math and Science, but I also love to read and hope that your child will leave my class loving to read!

Other than teaching, I enjoy traveling, swimming, reading, hiking, kayaking, watching movies, playing board games, listening to music, being creative with DIY projects, and spending time with my family and friends. I have an older sister and a younger brother. I have a beautiful niece and adorable nephew who are my pride and joy. In October, I will be getting married to my fiancé Lee Howard in the mountains of North Carolina. We have been together for three years and can’t wait to start the next chapter in our lives. We also have several fur babies; two cats, a rabbit, and two dogs. They keep us very busy! Beginning in November, I will be Mrs. Howard! As a teacher I am very organized, and I have high expectations for my students. I want them to succeed, but I also want them to feel like they are accepted and respected in our classroom. I want my students to feel safe in the classroom and like they are part of a family, but I am also going to expect them to work hard, follow the rules and directions, and always do their best. They will be supported, loved, and encouraged in my classroom, but I also expect them to be independent, respectful, and diligent. I want them to leave my classroom with a love of learning. As a teacher I always try to remember this quote by Forest Witcraft, "One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, how big my house was, or what kind of car I drove. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child."

We have almost made it until October! Keep up the hard work!

    Reading:  This week we are beginning the book "Sarah, Plain and Tall," a book about a family who lives in the prairie many years ago. Students will be using context clues, asking and answering questions, making inferences, and discussing character traits using this book. Students will also be working on elements of poetry, literary elements, and point of view with the story "Dear Dragon" from their Into Reading books. They are continuing to work on their writing skills and being able to write a narrative.
