About Me

My Photo
I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in June 2009. I began my wonderful career teaching first grade shortly thereafter, in August 2009. This is my fifth year utilizing a blog and hope that it will provide parents with another avenue to view their child's accomplishments throughout the school year.

Great Start

We are off to a great start to the new year!  I am so looking forward to a great year with my new friends. :)
Once I receive all of the permission forms, I'll post some student photos; for now here are a couple before the first day.
Ready for Open Building!

Making Progress

I have been to the classroom a few days now and am beginning to feel pretty good about the progress.  Speaking of progress, I snapped a couple of photos of the progress being made on our new building.
I am so excited to watch the progress as it occurs this upcoming year!

I am also very much looking forward to meeting everyone and seeing some familiar faces next Tuesday, August 18th during Open Building anytime between 3pm-6pm! :)

Enjoy this last full week of summer!

Where did the summer go?

My apologies for being so quiet this summer!  In-between the many, many days of interviewing in June, I experienced a laptop mishap.  I am close to having everything transferred to my new laptop now, so I should be in good shape for the upcoming school year!  Even though more changes have occurred with our new building (I will snap some photos this week), this photo was taken by Mr. Savage in late June.
My awesome family helped me for a couple of hours in the classroom today and part of the new building is already up.  It will be an exciting year as the work continues.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  
I look forward to seeing everyone soon!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  Briana came to school with me today to help me finish up closing down the classroom.  She told me she was proud of me for finishing earlier than I ever have before. :)  While we were there, I had to snap a few photos of the construction going on right now.  It was kind of hard to watch...:

I have to go back in on Monday and Tuesday to interview for Mrs. DeLotell's position, I'll post a few more photos when I return.
