Alrighty Then... We've Got A Blog!

So, I've summoned up some Jim Carrey attitude, got one of my BFFs on board, and well...started writing a teaching blog :)  If you know me, you know I always have SOMETHING to say about school or some idea I'm trying to implement on my second graders while trying to make it so fun and exciting they hardly notice :)  I wanted to start this blog because I would get to work with the incredibly techie and brilliant Beth Wright and I thought it could turn into a great place for amazing teachers to share their ideas and passion about the teaching profession!

Now, a little about me... I've wanted to be a teacher since I was five years old and would boss around my younger brother and sister to make sure they could "follow directions" :)  I married my best friend, Brian, five years ago and we have two "dog babies"; Mikka and Chloe.  This is my 6th year teaching and I've been able to teach kindergarten, first, second, and spend a wonderful year as a Literacy Coach.  I know this may sound totally cheesy, but I LOVE my job!  I'm so excited every day to get up and start a new day with my class and watch the lightbulbs go on over their heads :)  Now some random stuff, besides teaching and reading teaching blogs, I love to read (The Hunger Games is my current fave), stalk Pinterest, scrapbook, and spend time with my big Italian family that I adore :)

Hopefully, I can tempt you to come back and check out more of our ideas, freebies, projects, and occasional rants :)  Thanks for stopping by! :)
