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. In June 2016, I completed my Masters with the focus in Reading grades K-6th grade. This will be my seventh year utilizing a blog and hope that it will provide parents with another avenue to view their child's accomplishments throughout the school year.

Locks of Love

Normally my posts and photos are all from our classroom activities.  I just cannot pass upon the opportunity to give a shout out to two girls who were so generous and donated their hair to Locks of Love.  What a wonderful, selfless, and caring thing to do!  Here are some photos of their experience as well as from our week in room 105.
We are reading one of Mrs. Bryant's favorite books, A Fine, Fine School.
I love my job! :)

Veterans Day Celebration

I must say that BES really knows how to show our Veterans how much we appreciate them!  Our students received a standing ovation from our Veterans after their performance...amazing!  Here are some photos from our week:

Getting in the Groove

There are so many adjustments for students when they start first grade.  I am beginning to notice that we all have begun to get used to the longer day, later lunch, daily routines, and expectations in our first grade class.  They have matured so much during these first 50 days of school!
Here are a some photos from our week:

Conferences, and Assemblies, and Halloween, Oh My!

Whew, there were many, many things on our schedule last week!  It was wonderful meeting with all of you during our conference nights.  It never ceases to amaze me after meeting the amazing parents we have at Boyd, how great kids come from great parents!  I did manage to snap a few photos of some of our week:
