About Me

Well, here I am...! 
I have been thinking about starting a blog since I first started selling on Teachers Pay Teachers last August, but between coaching and teaching I just hadn't found the time! For the last two years, I taught fifth grade and LOVED it and I LOVED my school! But, I had to move... and that meant finding a new school. I was offered a teaching position in.... KINDERGARTEN! It's going to be a big change for me, but I am really, really excited to go on this new journey!

I am planning to use this blog to share some of my ideas to use in the upper elementary grades, but I am also going to be sharing my journey navigating this whole new world of Kindergarten! I have been exploring lots of really amazing Kindergarten blogs this summer. Reading all of the wonderful ideas makes me look forward to the fun things that my Kinders and I will do as we learn and grow together.

Oh, and some things about me... 
I completed a five year teacher education program and finished with my Masters in Elementary Education and Middle School Social studies in May of 2013. In my fifth grade classroom, I focused a lot on developing center-based learning. We used the Daily Five and CAFE model, which I adapted to the Upper Elementary level. I am planning on using center-based learning in Kindergarten as well!

I love to travel, although I am not too keen on the whole flying thing! I also have a retired racing greyhound named Zoey. She is four and a half years old, and we love to go exploring together!

Well, that's it for now!
