All About Me

Hey! My name is Ashleigh Sadler and I am Freshman. I am from Pittsburgh.  I grew up 5 minutes outside of the city, so having all the open space here is definitely a change. I am a huge Steelers fan and I love the Yankees. My Dad grew up with the lead singer from the band Train. I have been able to go to many of his concerts as a result of them being friends. I have worked at daycare for almost four years with all ages from infants to school age. Working at the daycare made me want to obtain a major in Early Childhood Education with Special Education. 
I think that learning with technology is a huge benefit in today's world. Everything is changing from the old fashion text book, to being able to download a text book on a kindle, saving a lot of money. I have never had to teach with technology but, I feel like it would be easier to stick with a chalk board or even white board when teaching children rather than using a smart board.
I believe teaching is a way to help others learn and grow. As teachers, we leave lasting effects on the children we will teach. I know of teachers who have made differences in my life, and teachers who I never want to be like.


  1. I am also from Pittsburgh! and i loveee the Steelers! We also have the same majors! and i too think chalkboards can be easier to use when teaching children, but with smart boards you can do powerpoints and make things more interesting.

  2. I definitely agree with you when it comes to young children and technology. It's certainly much easier to teach them using more traditional methods. That's not to say that you couldn't use it all, but I do understand where you are coming from.
