I took the plunge! I discovered blogging this summer and I am completely in love. Thus far I have only been a blog stalker. I know absolutely nothing about blogging or blogs but here I am creating one. I have no idea how much I will do with this blog but I would like to learn more. I also really want to learn how all of the awesome bloggers make stuff and sell it on TPT. It is so cute and wonderful!!! But again, I have no idea how to do it.
A little bit about myself: I am married, a mommy, and a 1st grade teacher. That pretty much somes it up! I have been married for almost 9 years, my son (Max) will be 3 in November and I am coming up on my 10th year of teaching. This will be my 2nd year in 1st grade. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and K also. My school loves to move me around all over. That is okay though because I feel like I have learned so much from all of my experience.
Last year I was given the dream job of "Reading Resource." It lasted 2 weeks:( After our 5 day count I was moved into 1st grade. That was so much fun...not really! I had no idea what I was doing and on top of it I was made Team Leader. My poor team had to put up with me all year. Hopefully I will do a better job this year.
I didn't think I would like 1st grade. I had begged to get out of K 5 years ago because I couldn't take the little ones anymore. I discovered, however, that I think I love 1st grade. I think I was made to be a 1st grade teacher. Yes, they are little. But not K little. I had a very rough class last year but I survived and learned a lot! I love teaching them how to read and seeing all of their progress. I swear no other grade is like it!
I am really looking forward to this next year. So many wonderful ideas from Blogland and so many new goodies from TPT. Plus, I am doing a theme in my classroom this year. I have never done one before but I am so inspired by all of the amazing bloggers I stalk. I am doing an owl theme this year. If I ever figure out how to post pictures, I will.
Will someone actually read my blog? I know that is the whole point but I am a little nervous. You know the whole, "Am I interesting enough to blog?" Probably not but oh well. I am going to anyway!
See ya later!!
