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.

Healthy Teeth

We had a great week with hands-on learning about healthy teeth.  Not only did we conduct a great science experiment, we had a dentist visit us to discuss our teeth.  Here are some photos from our week:

Happy Valentine's Day

With the shorter week we had this past week, it seems as if I only remembered to take photos on Thursday.  I guess if I'm going to remember, Thursday was the day to do so. ;)
