First Post!!!

Good evening everyone! This is my first blog post ever.......and I have mixed feelings about it!! I am nervous (as I am not sure what people will think when they read my blog). I am also very excited-because I think (key word---think--haha) that I have lots of good ideas to share!

Here are some things you should know about me:

1)   What's your favorite color? Turquoise and black….who doesn’t like black??

2) What is one food you could never get tired of eating? Well that is a toughie…because I do enjoy LOTS of food! BUT
if I had to pick one I wouldn’t get tired of it would be pulled pork sandwiches…yummy!

3) What's your favorite holiday? Thanksgiving and Christmas
I love getting together with my family and that time of year is so beautiful!

4) What is your favorite hobby? Reading, exercising or cooking.

5) Do you live in the same state you grew up in? Yep---Good ol’ Kansas!

6) Do you have any talents? I wish I did!! 

7) Coke or Pepsi? Diet coke! 
8) Favorite tv show? I hate to admit it….but I am a sucker for every Real Housewives.

9) If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be? Seattle---I have already been there…but I love it!  I can’t wait to go back.

10) Summer or winter?
NeitherFALL all the way!!!

Well hopefully reading that helped you get to know me better.  I have big plans for this blogsharing resources, ideas and connecting with teachers all over the world. My goal is to update it once a week---so come back for more!



  1. Super cute new blog! Congrats on this new endeavor!!!


  2. I'm sure you have a talent if you really think about it. What grade do you teach?

    1. I taught 4th grade for 5 years, but now I am an interventionist in a 5/6 grade school. How about you?

  3. Love your new blog! I'm your newest follower!

  5. Welcome to blogging. I hope you love it as much as I do.

    Be sure and a follow button (the one with the little faces of everyone's profile pictures). Here is how you can do that:

    1. Go to design at the top of your blog.
    2. Choose layout and add a gadget.
    3. Click on more gadgets.
    4. The follow button is the last one on that page-#25.

    1. Heather,

      Thank you so much for the tip! I had been looking for the "follower gadget" thank you, thank you, thank you! I am on my way to check out your blog....

  8. Katie, thought I would go back to your roots. :) Nice to know you! I was mostly 6th for over 20 years (retired now) and didn't think I'd like blogging, but love it. Not sure how yours slipped by me, but I'm your newest follower!
