Before our very own Mrs. Fearrington was named Teacher of the Year for the district, a Northside student had the opportunity to interview her! Here is what she had to say:
Q: what is your favorite part of teaching?
A: I really enjoy watching Kindergarten students grow. They begin the year with limited knowledge and they end the year with a wealth of knowledge.
Q: when did you start teaching?
A: I started teaching in 1994.
Q: have you taught any other class than kindergarten?
A: Yes, I have been a classroom teacher for grades Kindergarten, first, second, and third grades.
Q: do you enjoy working with kids?
A: I love working with kids. They have taught me a great deal during the many years of my career.
Q: what are your funniest moments in teaching?
A: I enjoy watching students during our writing period. I read so many "funny" words that are not spelled correctly. I'm always pleasantly surprised when they read what their writing "should " say.
Q: any comments on kindergarten and your classes?A: After teaching for so many years, I still "LOVE WORKING WITH KIDS!"
The interview was conducted by Martin for the May edition of The Compass, Northside's student Newspaper.
