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.

What Time is It?

It was yet another fun-filled week!  It seems as if I didn't have my camera handy this past week to capture everything we accomplished.  Here are photos from when I did remember to get out my camera:

This past week we had lots of fun measuring using various units of measurement.  To measure we've used:  kid steps, baby steps, basketball player steps, and craft sticks.  We also enjoyed an assembly with a wonderful story teller.  Here are some photos from our week:

Happy New Year!

It was so wonderful to come back to school after our winter break and see all of the smiling faces!  Besides being a little tired by the end of Monday (yes, including me!), we returned back from the break fairly seamless.  Here are a few photos from our week:

Inside Recess Creations

If anyone has connections with Mother Nature, we could sure use some outside recess weather this upcoming week.  Thank you! ;)

Happy Holidays

The end of 2014 seemed to be filled with many illnesses.  Although I am feeling tons better, it seems as if other of my family members aren't fairing as well.  My hope is once this bout is over, we will all be on the road to a healthy new year!  Here are some photos from our awesome week before winter break:

How sweet are they?
Mrs. Langston helping us!
Without much of a voice, reading to the class wasn't possible for me.
I'm SO grateful to work with amazing teachers like Mrs. Langston and Mr. Holden who gave up their plan time/lunch time to help out in our classroom!
I loved seeing their faces when they opened up their gift! :)
Winter Party
  A HUGE thank you to our awesome Room Representative and all of the parent volunteers who helped make the winter party a great success!
