About Me

My photo
Welcome! I hope to use this blog to share some of the amazing things my class and school does to make learning fun! I have been teaching for 15 years already! I started teaching 3rd grade in a Parochial School, then I was hired to teach 1st grade for three years, was moved to 5th grade for 2 years, and then came back to 1st grade in the district where I attended school. I love that I'm able to give back the the school district that guided me to become the teacher I am today! I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, certified 1-8; a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction; and my Administrator License Pre-K-12.

Blogs I Love!

My Newest Creation I go again...bringing something new to my classroom!  Here's the beginning stages of it:

Can you guess?  I'm making a tree!  Yep!  A TREE in my classroom!  I can't take full credit for the idea because it came from one of my first jobs at a children's bookshop called "Full of the Dickens".  In the reading area of the shop was the most amazing tree!  The shop moved locations and I was given the tree to use in my very first classroom and the kids loved it!  So I thought that it was time to bring it back!  The art teacher in my building, Mr. Beuglass has graciously offered his expertise to help my dream come true so check back often for updated pictures!


  1. Hey Jennifer!
    I just came across your blog and I am a new follower! Love the idea of having a tree in your classroom-I can't wait to see the finished pics!


  2. Thanks Dana!
    Hoping to do some painting this weekend...if I haven't melted! :) We're experiencing a bit of a heat wave and it's just been too stuffy to be in my classroom!
