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.

Harvest Celebration

Well, October is proving to be an extremely busy month; therefore, I'm a week behind on my posting.  Here are some photos of our very fun week from the week of October 13th:

We stopped halfway through and made predictions what the characters were going to do to haul their enormous pumpkin to town for the pumpkin contest.

The Weeks are Flying By

Can you believe that this Friday will be the end of the first quarter?  The saying, "Time flies when you're having fun" seems very appropriate!  We really had a lot of fun this week; I cannot believe I didn't take any pictures during Math Night!  Here are some photos from our week:

We Love Geometry

As I look through this past week's photos, one thing seems to stand out:  our class loves geometry!  October 4th was my birthday and let me tell you, I was blown away by the generosity and thoughtfulness of the staff and students on Friday!  I just had to include the photos of the awesome pictures students made me during their "Fun Friday" time.  Here are some photos from our week:
