Sabres – December Teacher of the Month

Our December Teacher of the Month is….Julie Osborn of Mexico Middle School!

What grade/subject do you teach and how long have you been teaching? I currently teach 5th Grade Digital Literacy and push in to an inclusion classroom for Science and Social Studies.

How are you using Hockey Scholar in your classroom? I use Hockey Scholar to support math and science in my classroom. Students sign in and whenever they complete what we are working on they wait for others to finish by working on Hockey Scholar. They also may choose this activity on rewards days. Many of them do chose to do this!

What was your students’ reaction to the course? Did they enjoy learning STEM with the Sabres? The students reaction has always been positive and they seem to enjoy the program. They often chose this program for rewards times. Being a hockey mom I love seeing children also have a passion for this sport and learning combined. I think this program is a great way to teach real world applications and engage the student in learning.

Who is your favorite Sabres player? Jason Pominville

Who in your life inspired you to become a teacher? After volunteering in my sons pre school and kindergarten classes, I found I have a passion for teaching students. My favorite age is Middle School! ( Crazy I know!!)
