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.

OAA Encouragement

With the OAAs beginning this upcoming week, the first graders decided to make encouraging notes for our 3rd - 6th grade classrooms.  We also began reading a great nonfiction book about our solar system.  Here are a few photos from our week:

Forces of Motion

We had yet another great week in room 105!  Since we met our goal for the Walk-a-Thon, teachers dressed liked Minions and Mr. Savage was Gru.  All teachers kissed a guiena pig (didn't know that one was planned) and Mr. Savage had to kiss a pig.  We also had a blast exploring magnets and how gravity works by having dropping races.  Here are some photos from our week:
