I am an Education Specialist for the Tehama County Department of Education. I have been working for TCDE for 6 years. My first 5 years I worked as a Juvenile Hall Instructor in Tehama County Juvenile Detention Facility Court School. This last year I taught special education at 5 different school sites.

  • How can I engage my students in writing during the short time that I have them?

As I prepare this presentation I wonder:

  • How can I help the teaching I do carry over into the classroom?
  • W.2.2 Write brief expository descriptions of a real object, person, place, or event, using sensory details.
  • W.1.8. With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.

Where I’m From….               by Lauren

I ‘m from baths in the kitchen sink,From Downy and Mom’s perfumeI am from flowers by the fence  (yellow and springy they tasted like crayons).I am from the ivy crawling up the house,The baby tree whose sturdy trunk shot from the groundA mirror image of my planted feet.

I’m from sprinkles and plastic table donut shopsFrom Bert and ErnieI’m from stupid heads and dot dot I got my cootie shotFrom don’t touch this and don’t touch that.I’m from Hymn No. 96 and why is this piece of bread so small?And bible crafts made from neon pipe cleaners.

I’m from Bill and Darlene’s branchFrom hot soup and freshly baked corn breadFrom the Well, when I was little’s and the snowy games Told to me by Green Bay Packer season ticket holdersIn the storage room are boxesOverflowing with shiny, color-coated memoriesBundles of dreams kept aliveTo ask my mother about.

 I am from those momentsA leaf changing color with the weatherTime only strengthens the branch that holds me.

“I’m From the Woods….”      by Nick

 I’m from the woods and the creek behind my fence From the gray wooden backyard deck. I’m from the honeysuckles,The pear trees by the neighbor’s garden From the creek when I swing over it.

I’m from the yellow walls of Grandma’s kitchenFrom the Yorkshire pup, the coolest thing in my family.I’m from macaroni pictures of the ArkFrom “I just can’t snap my fingers and make it happen” and from David the Gnome in summers long ago.

I’m from my mom’s side of the family,From roasting turkeys for each holiday,From when Papaw yelled at his boss and got firedFrom the family pictures in the big wooden cabinet andFrom the family gathering when we drag them out.

I am from those moments.A root that no one sees, but walks all overAn important part of the tree.”
