I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Amy Bonds. I am beginning my 13th year as a first grade teacher. I graduated from LSU with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education. I've been married for 11 years to my husband, Alex, and we have a seven year old daughter named Hannah.
To be a teacher in the right sense is to be a learner. Instruction begins when you, the teacher, learn from the learner, put yourself in his place so that you may understand what he understands and in the way he understands it. ~Soren Kierkegaard~"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." ~William Butler Yeats~
