Tricia Snyder - 3rd Grade Teacher
My favorite thing about being a teaching is having the opportunity to invest in many different lives and discover the best ways to help my students learn.
Eating a delicious meal and watching a movie.
My favorite holiday is Christmas because everything. I love Christmas music, decorations, festivities and celebrating with friends and family.
Mr. McConnell was my 5th grade teacher. He was funny and caring and was my inspiration to become a teacher.
My favorite subject to teach is writing. I think writing can give us the chance to express ourselves in ways we wouldn't have been able to do otherwise.
When I'm in a group of close friends, I would say 10 - obviously.
Last year, I had a conversation with a student and was able to talk to her about the strength she has to make good decisions. It was such a precious moment to be able to speak into her life. That was my favorite.
I think it's always something that has been a desire for me. When I was a kid, I would often play "school" with my friends. As I got older, I thought teaching was beyond me, but I had some close friends encourage me to pursue work with kids. So I went back to school to get my teaching certificate and have felt encouraged and challenged every day since. And I’ve never regretted it.
