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.

We had another awesome week in room 103!  Students have been enjoying closely reading and responding to our two new texts, Stellaluna & Dragons and Giants.  We have also solved many story problems and played fun subtraction games.  Here are some photos from our week:
