Budding Blog

Hey All!

I'm linking up with Jess at I heart Recess. Every month she hosts a linky party for blogs that are just starting out and have less than 200 followers. Just click on the picture and answer the questions about your blog. I'm can't wait to meet some new bloggers.

1. Why did you start blogging?
After blog stalking all of last year, I found I loved reading their blog posts every week. I enjoyed the community of other teachers that enjoyed what they do. This really inspired me to give blogging a shot and  talk to other teachers about what they are doing in their classrooms. I have found that inspires me to try new things and approach concepts and standards differently.

2. What is your favorite subject to teach and why?
I have always loved to teach reading. I love that moment when students finally are able to connect all the pieces and really become readers. They always seem so surprised that they are able to do something that is "grown up." It always reminds me of why I teach.

3. Describe your teaching style.
All my life I have loved to learn. I try to bring this same love into my classroom. I think students need lots of opportunities to discover and explore the concepts we are learning. I try to provide these opportunities in as many ways as I can.

4. 3 interesting facts about you.
My first teaching job was in Forks, WA. (Home of Twilight books.)
I have only taught 1 grade...2nd grade.
I am starting my National Boards this upcoming school year. (Ekkk!)

5. Do you have a TpT store?
Yes I do!

  2. 1. Your blog is absolutely gorgeous! It has all of my favorite colors.
    2. I love teaching reading too, glad to know I'm not alone.
    3. Teaching in Alaska has been a crazy adventure. Many many stories, hence the reason I began blogging. :)
    4. I look forward to reading about your teaching fun! Thanks for commenting on mine!
