Hi, I’m Stephanie!
Hey there!
Welcome to Teach Me at the Castle! My name is Stephanie and I am a 3rd grade teacher in Southern California. I am also a diehard Disney Parks lover! When I am not in my classroom, you can find my kids and I hanging out at Disneyland. We are annual passholders who love just being in the parks, surrounded by the sights and sounds that bring magic to us all.

When I am in the parks, I find teaching inspiration all over the place. This blog is a collection of that inspiration. It is my hope that you will be inspired by my lessons and observations to bring a little Disney to your own students.

I began by creating an anchor chart with the students defining prepositi…

Tiki Room and Dole Whips

Today, we visited the world famous Tiki Room!  I love this little slice of heaven in Disneyland.  It is so cool and calm.  It is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds...and pick up a little snack too.  So my class virtually headed there for our lessons today. We started by waking up…
