Featured Teacher Tuesday - Week 20

NOOO!  It has come to an end!  This is the last blog post (at least for now) of the weekly linky party, Featured Teacher Tuesdays, hosted by Heidi Martin.


Our last, but certainly not least, featured teacher is... Heidi Neels!

Heidi Neels, from Flipping for First, is a spunky and organized first grade teacher!  Years of tumbling and cheerleading as well as a passion for teaching made her blog name come to life.  She has been teaching for 9 years, 6 of those being in first grade.  Heidi has truly found her teaching niche!


Heidi has been married for 15 years (yep, he is tied up in the basement) and has two beautiful girls, ages 15 (do not do the math) and 10!  Faith brings joy in her life each and every day.  God has blessed her family and teaching career.  She is a middle child (typical middle child syndrome) and requires lots of attention from those around her.

Organization fuels Heidi through first grade.  (It may be a disease!)  Check out her blog for some amazing tips on how to organize Words Their Way, Listening Stations, Behavior Management, Erin Condren Planner, Common Core Assessments, Classroom tips and so much more!

Laughing is important to Heidi!  Mo Willems, first grade quotes, and National Lampoon movies can put a smile on her face.  Just like Wimberly, Heidi can worry a lot!  Therefore, Heidi clings to
Psalm 46:10 - “Be still, and know I am God!

Heidi’s best seller is her "Editable Daily Behavior Chart."  This is an amazing product that every teacher who has a student with challenging behavior needs.  Heidi loves to hear success stories about teachers using this in their classrooms!


"Fry’s First 100 Sight Words" came about when Heidi had 30% of her students struggling with sight words!  Yikes!  To overcome this obstacle, Heidi created a product that focuses on teaching the words in context using pictures, repetition, and motor skills.  She ended that year with 100% of her students knowing all first grade sight words!  Love it!


Heidi’s "First Grade Common Core Math Assessments" are a full year’s worth of assessments!  She even has a blog post with a yearly calendar to help you plan.
