Aloha! I am so excited for this school year. Some of you I have had before, others of you I can't wait to get to know. I LOVE themes. This year our theme is Sea Glass. This will be practiced in the classroom and then extended and demonstrated with #s throughout our social media connection. As we move throughout the year, you will find that there are several themes which act as our navigation tools on The Deck. By the way, I call our classroom The Deck, it is a play on words with my last name...
Speaking of which, I am Mrs. Decker. I have been married for 12 years (my husband is awesome!), have 1 dog, and most of the little kiddos in my world call me Auntie Em. However, we adopted our daughter a little over a year ago, and our second daughter was born in January. BOTH are AMAZING!!!! Needless to say, our home is full of a lot of fun and lot of love.
I attended Palm Beach Atlantic University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. I then earned by Education Specialist Degree from the University of Central Florida in School Psychology. I love painting, singing, Pintrest, the beach, and going on mission trips. In fact, I am on the Board of Directors of two nonprofit organizations. However, becoming a mother has been the greatest gift and my absolute favorite!!
This is going to be a very fun year. Although psychology is full of new terminology, it is really just the study of life, which makes it familiar and interesting at the same time. The more we work together, the more enjoyable and memorable our time will be. I will hold you to high expectations and challenge you to expand your worldviews, but I will be pushing myself in the same ways.
Life is beautiful, and we get to spend this year of it together. I am truly honored.
And don't forget to find and help shape some more "Sea Glass" :)
