Margaret Bird


My name is Margaret Bird, but my students call me Teacher Margaret.  This is my 34th  year teaching and my 16th year at Big Lake Elementary.  My undergrad degree is in Early Childhood Education with endorsements in Elementary and Special Education.  I also hold a Master's Degree in Special Education. I am one of six children (three girls and three boys--The Bird Bunch).  I am very close to all my siblings including their children (6 nieces and 4 nephews---ages 25 years to 7 years).  Can you tell that I am a very proud sister and Aunt!!! 

My passion comes from your children.  I love watching the little ones learn new skills.  I love setting that foundation for future learning with each and every student.  When the "light bulb" goes on for the first time, my heart sings.  I love teaching the kids how to sound letters, name letters and start the foundation for reading words.  BUT the most joy comes from play.  Play is so important for future skills---social skills, interactive skills, sharing, cooperation, imagination for writings skills, successful communication skills, and so on.......I love toys and seeing the expressions on children's' faces when new items are brought into the classroom to explore.  Learning new ways to play and interact with others is the most fascinating process.  Seeing the progress special needs children go through to learn is the icing on the cake.
