About Me

I have been teaching for over 20 years. Frankly, at this point it's hard to keep up with how long I've been teaching. I  honestly don't know if it's because the number is getting so big or because I've lost my marbles. I have taught 2nd-5th grades, but most of my time has been spent teaching 3rd grade in a rural title 1 school in Texas. I love using technology in the classroom and have been bitten by the journaling/notebooking bug. I think Dinah Zike is amazing! I'm married to a high school teacher and have two "Little Hooties" who aren't so little anymore. In my free time I blog hop, tinker on my computer, read, and binge watch Netflix.  I never plan to jump out of a plane, but I do enjoy indoor skydiving. Even though I really want to simplify my life, I've decided to add blogging to my already hectic life.  You only live once, right?

  7. Although I have taught many other grade levels, this is my first year teaching 3rd grade. I thank you for your "Rate Your Writing" poster idea. It makes an excellent visual for my students!
