My First "Back to School" Purchases for My New First Graders!

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!

We're Here!

We made it to Foxburg, Pennsylvania today and went right to Allegheny-Clarion Valley Elementary School to set up all of our goodies...well...most of them.  We still have a few things to do tonight at the Foxburg Inn but we're so excited to see everyone again!

My friend Megen Kania has been working on her new blog and I'm learning a ton of new ideas from her...and therefore am just dying to play with my templates, backgrounds, and buttons to spice my blog up a bit.  So don't be surprised if you start to see a new design in the next few days.  You can find her brand new blog over at Mrs. Kania's Tech Korner.  Be sure to check her out!  She's just starting...but has a ton of super cool ideas!

I'm going to be honest...I totally went blog stalking during our inservice yesterday (I still paid attention to our speaker) and found a ton of great new blogs!  I honestly don't know how I'm going to keep them all straight!  Thank God for Google Reader and my RSS Feed!
