Meet the Teacher

I'm a second grade teacher and I love my job!  I'm in my 11th year of teaching, which I still can't believe.  Has it really been that long?  Time flies when you're having fun!  I have been very lucky to have taught second grade my entire teaching career, which is great because I don't know if I could teach any other grade!

I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher, but I took a slightly different route than many to get there.  I earned a BA in Art History after falling in love with that subject.  I also took several education classes simultaneously.  I thought maybe I could use that education to work in a museum as an Education Director.  Instead, I got a job working in law enforcement for five years (civilian). While I loved that job, it just wasn't where I was meant to be so while I was working full time in that job, I earned my MA in Teaching.  The rest is history!  

I am a wife, mama bear, and hard core shopper.  School supplies make my heart skip a beat, and I own an obscene amount of colored markers (but they sure are pretty and fun to use).  Coffee is my beverage of choice.  And, if I could eat bacon every day, I would.   Well, that, or chips and salsa.

I love to share ideas with other teachers, just as much as I love to get new ideas from other teachers.  I hope you find some of my ideas helpful and useful!  While you're here, be sure to check out my popular Monthly Round Up posts, plus these other popular posts

  1. I love your blog! Thanks for sharing all your ideas.

  2. Can you tell me which Printer you are using? Your prints look just perfect :)

    1. Thank you! I actually use a low end HP inkjet printer and I am very pleased with its performance. Sometimes, I will send small print jobs to Staples to be printed. I usually do this when I am printing things that I intend to use as display pieces in my classroom.



I'd love to hear what you have to say!
