I can't welcome you with a "Hi Y'all!" like so many of my favorite teacher-bloggers because, well, we just don't talk like that here in Michigan! (Although I kind-of wish we did!) So, I'll just say "Hi there!". I'm so glad you're here! This little ol' blog will be a new adventure for me and I am SO very excited to get to know each one of you!
I'll share a little about myself... I've wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember (except for a brief time when I wanted to be an oceanographer....that one definitely didn't pan out!). I spent my first year teaching 1st grade in sunny south Florida (no snow days there!!), and have been back in my home state of Michigan ever since. I am in my 10th year of teaching, and my 9th year of teaching Kindergarten.
Wanna know a secret??? I cried when I got hired to teach Kindergarten. I wanted 2nd or 3rd grade. I had no idea what I would do with the little littles!
Silly me! I love, love, LOVE teaching Kindergarten and can't imagine doing anything that would fit me more perfectly!
I have an amazing hubby and two great kids. My hubby is a teacher too. He teaches high school history. We definitely have some fun dinner conversations about our adventures at school! :) My son is a Kindergartener himself this year -- WOW, has that been a F-U-N adventure!!! My daughter is 3 (and a HALF! That half is VERY important to her!!), and she keeps us on our toes!
As a family, we love traveling, playing games, and having dance parties (well, the hubby usually stays out of those...hee hee). And me? I love reality TV, the color green, singing loudly in the car, hazelnut steamers, family traditions, and, of course, polka dots!
I can't wait to get to know you too! Thanks for stopping by!
