Well here I am. Creating a blog has been on my to-do list for about three years now and since I'm all about being fresh and new this year, I figured I would finally get it started.
Welcome to my blog! It is my goal to use this blog to share the many ideas I get from my own brewing brain, from the brains of others, or a combination of both. I am an avid Pinner, so I'm always looking at other ideas and thinking of ways to adapt them for my classroom. I will always give credit where credit is due and if you find that I haven't, let me know right away!
This will be my eighth year of teaching and I'm starting at a new school. I've been doing fifth grade for five years now. I'm an Air Force wife, so moving isn't new to me, but for the first time I changed districts without actually moving. I've spent 7 years of teaching, plus two years with AmeriCorps in Title I schools. This will be the first time working in a small district, one with just one 3-5 building for the whole area, 6 fifth grade classes total! I am so very excited for all of these changes and delighted to share my ideas with visitors to my blog.
Off we go!
