About Me!

I am a first grade teacher from Connecticut and I absolutely love what I do!  I have been teaching first grade for the last year, second grade for three years before that, and first grade during my first year teaching.  Entering into my sixth year as a first grade teacher, I know this is where my heart belongs!  I wouldn't want to be anywhere else, with any other students.  Teaching first graders is where I feel I am meant to be!

My husband and I have been married for five years and we have a beautiful daughter together.  I am pregnant with our second child, another girl, and I can't wait for her to get here!  I will be on maternity leave during the fall and early winter months and am looking to creatively express myself through blogging.

Fun Facts About Me

1.  I have my bachelor's degree in dance but my career ended due to a major foot injury.  I'm glad it happened because I love teaching a million times more than I love dancing.  Who would've known?!?!

2.  My husband works for my district but we did not meet working together...I met him years before I became a teacher.

3.  I devour books...any much so I stay up through the night sometimes without realizing it!

4.  We have an English Bulldog...he is the source of many funny stories in my classroom.

5.  My grandmother is my best friend.  I wouldn't be the person I am without her behind me every step along the way.  I miss her and the rest of my family dearly (we live 40 minutes apart).  I look forward to moving back soon!

6.  Last summer I started my 6th year degree in Educational Technology.  From Summer 2012 to Summer 2013 I participated in the online program, got pregnant, was nominated for "Teacher of the Year" in my district, taught first grade full time, and managed to complete my 6th year degree (30 credits).  It's been a busy year!!!
