...my 3-year-old. Nash just started at Montessori a couple of weeks ago, and I can already tell he will have his momma's love for school. He is all-boy and already has plans to play every sport offered in our small town.
I think I got tricked by Nash... everything was just so easy! Well, with Emmie it is not... this little girl is FULL of spunk and sass and tomboyishness (yes, I know that is not a real word). Luckily, one thing we agree on is the fact that a bow is an absolute must in order for her to leave the house :).
This is my 6th year teaching and shhhh, don't tell--- but honestly the first year that feel completely confident in what I am doing. I have taught First Grade for all of those six years, and I don't foresee a time that I will want to leave this little piece of Heaven.
I love coffee. I played college soccer. I live for Kentucky Basketball. I really enjoy cutting out laminating. I am so inspired by teacher bloggers (okay you may know that)
I want my kids to walk away from my classroom LOVING reading and learning in general. I couldn't believe it when I "met" all these bloggers who could incorporate everything that my kids needed with what I had to do as a teacher. I LOVE my job!
Last year I really beefed up my literacy centers. This year we are installing Math Work Stations. I am so excited about it. We used to use a program that I was not very fond of, but now I feel like I have the freedom to do what I know my kids need (more on math soon!)
2. Brightly colored paper (really cutting down on my colored ink bill!)
3. Hot Glue
4. Mr. Sketch markers
5. My Smartboard/Elmo/Amplification System (technology is fantastic!)
6. My school's Laminator
Thanks for taking the time to learn about me! I will be back tomorrow with more-- I finally feel like I have my feet under me!
