Welcome to our Class Blog and a new school year! I have had a wonderful summer with my family. We had some friends come in town and stay with us, we went swimming almost daily, and we got to go to fun places like Oceans/Worlds of Fun, KC Zoo, Deanna Rose and Jump Zone. To top it all off, we ended our summer with a family trip to Hawaii. It was absolutely beautiful and we had a blast swimming, snorkeling, eating and exploring. I hope that you had a fantastic summer as well and I can't wait to hear about your adventures and excitements from over the summer.
Even though I have had a fantastic summer, I am excited to get back to school and working with students. I can not wait to get to know all of my new students and their families. I hope your ready to have a wonderful year full of fun, learning and adventure!
To help you to get to know me a little bit better I have made an acrostic below using the letters of my name. Each word tells about an interest or favorite that I have. Please enjoy and feel free to leave comments :)
First Grade- I have taught first grade for 10 years and I still LOVE it!
Addicted to sweets -cookies, icecream, candies...
Reading- I love reading fiction love stories from authors like James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks and Christian author, Karen Kingsbury
Relaxing- after a full week of teaching, playing with the kids, errands and cleaning, I can't wait to relax on Sundays and take a nap when the kids do.
Exercising- I have always loved to run, I play co-ed soccer with my husband and recently, he has got me into lifting weights with him!
Learning- every year I make it my goal to learn new information, strategies or techniques for being a better teacher. This year learning how to effectively use technology in my class is one of my goals.
Laughing- I love to laugh and usually always have a smile on my face!
