Teacher Overboard...

Ok...Let me first say that I am so excited to start the new school year WITH a blog...however, the sharks are circling! Setting up a blog is tricky business--long hours on the computer, lots of coffee, and even more  hair pulling! BUT, I am determined to make this happen! I am a first grade teacher about to venture into my 11th year! I love technology (alright, it's an obsession really...) and believe sharing and learning new "things" is awesome...when you put the two  together, well,  that is like a teacher's dream! With all that being said, Welcome! I promise hope to get the layout wrapped up soon! My goal for this blog is to have an interactive means to communicate with parents, showcase student work, as well as gain and share ideas with other educators!!  Welcome aboard!   

a point to ponder... In the rush of preparing your classrooms, "designing" lessons, and getting to know your new babies, REMEMBER-- its the little things that can brighten someone's day! Enjoy the journey!

LOVE these SCENTED markers! What makes you smile?

    I am happy to be your newest follower and a 1st grade teacher too.

    I would love to hear more about the team building activities you do with your kiddos. We do TONS as part of Conscious Discipline and building our school family.
