Hello fellow teachers and friends! This is my second time setting up a blog. Don’t laugh!! I hope that I can keep it up! It is definitely something that I have been wanting to do for a long time. So here it goes! This last school year will mark my 13th year as an elementary school teacher. It is amazing to think that! I can’t believe that I have taught four years in first grade, seven years in second grade, and two years in fifth grade! The bulk of my teaching was in the state of Virginia and the rest in Georgia. My 13 years teaching have taught me a lot about authentic teaching, life long learning and the dreaded state testing all while adjusting to a higher grade level. I truly feel that those years upped my level teaching in ways that I never could have imagined! I am now embarking on a new journey in Instructional Coaching! This blog will be my new journey. It will be my new learnings and my new beginning…again. I am so excited to share my experiences to even greater heights! It will be a fun and exciting journey!
