My Blog is finally up and runinng!!!!

I am beyond excited to finally have my blog up and running!  I have been working on getting it set up for days!  I need to give a huge shout out to Liz from TheHappyTeacher and Deirdre from A Burst of First for responding to my emails and text messages about blogging.  Also, my sister who I'm sure was so tired of hearing about my woes of setting up the blog.  Thanks ladies!  Without you I know I would not be blogging right now!

I thought I would start by telling you a little bit about myself.  I have worked in education for 15 years.  I taught second grade for 9 years.  I've spent the last 5 years working in a position where I worked mostly with teachers on four campuses in grades PreK-2 and wrote ELA & Social Studies curriculum for our district.  This year I will be part of an intervention team.  I will be working mostly with Tier 2 students in Math and Reading in grades K-5.  I am all kinds of nervous about my job.  I have never worked with 4th and 5th graders.  NEVER!  I figure I will learn a lot this year.   I love working with Primary grade levels!  I think primary peeps think differently that any other group.  I believe that learning should be fun, engaging, and hands-on whenever possible!  I know there are times when you just have to trudge through some lessons or skills, but that should be few and far between. 
On a personal note, I'm the mom of 3 fantastic kids!  They are my whole world!  I'm serious.  I am so proud of them.  Here's a pic of my little family.  It was taken a few years ago, but it's one of my favorites.

My sister is also a huge part of my life.  We talk on the phone almost daily.  I just love her to pieces!
I have high hopes for this little ole blog!  My first goal is to actually get some followers!  I'm so excited to have one follower.  Thanks Liz from TheHappyTeacher!

See you around the bloggin' world!
