Welcome to Mommy Teacher!

My name is Rebecca Murray. I am a stay at home mom who is also an Elementary School Teacher. I recently decided to take some time off from teaching to stay at home with my son. I was in the classroom for 9 years, and I have taught several subjects.

As teacher, I was asked by parents,"How can you help my child?, or "How can I challenge my child more?" With that in mind, I have decided to start this blog to help parents answer those questions.

Please feel free to post any comments, ideas or questions. Please remember to do this in polite, mindful manner.
Thank you.

Many children are bullied at school. Did you know most bullying usually occurs in places where there are no adults present, such as, hallways and bathrooms? Bullying even occurs in places where their a lot children, such as the cafeteria, schools and yes, the classroom. It can happen anywhere. As a teacher, at Orange Elementary School, in Orange, VA, I was introduced to a great program to prevent bullying in schools. It was called Olweus Bullying Prevention. It involves teaching children about bullying and how to prevent it. The program has lessons, in which, children take part in scenarios that model ways to stop bullying even before it starts. For more information on this program click on the link to the right labeled Olweus Bullying Prevention. It is great for schools and parents!
