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.

We Have a Winner!

Did everyone survive their Valentine's Day Parties?
Holy cannoli!
Thanks to all of the wonderful ideas being shared out there my kiddos had a lot of fun today and they were sugared up and sent home with more sugar...sorry parents! It was crazy busy but all of the hugs on their way out the door and the following note left behind for me was the icing on the cake.
Awww! That melted my heart a bit! :)

We received our package of love from Texas! Thanks to Caitlin and Sarah @ Teacher Blogger Exchange for organizing a fun time!
When they opened their Valentines all I heard was, "Glitter!!!!!" Like they've never seen it before! It was so funny! Thanks to Jen and her cuties over at Rowdy in First Grade for a fun package! We loved the book too!

And then it was on to our ice cream sundae party!
Yeah...some of us may have overdone it on the toppings! I'm sensing belly aches all over town tonight. :( Sorry again parents! I tried to warn them!

Now onto announcing the winner of my first give-away! So I used that random generator that everyone seems to be using and Ta Da!!!
My second comment was from Laura @ Peace, Love and First Grade! Here's what she wrote:
Hey Laura! Send me your address so I can mail you your prize!

I think I'm entering a sugar coma myself!
Hope all of you had a great Valentine's Day!
