New Blog Hop
Found this great place to find new and exciting blogs at grade three is the place for me. It's called the Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop. I fit in that category so I am going to play along!
1.) What state are you in?
I live in the Lone Star State of Texas (or hell in the summer time cuz IT'S SO HOT!!!)
2.) What is your current teaching position?
I am in second grade and very happy to be home!!!
This is my 23rd year. I've taught Kinder for 9 years, 1st for 4 years, 2nd-this is year 3, reading recovery and have been the reading interventionist/literacy specialist/coach (whatever your district calls reading help) for 6 years. As a favor to my P, last year I taught 5th...YIKES!!...not so much for me. I didn't know what to do with kids that already knew how to read ;) I am happy to report I am back down where I belong in 2nd! Reading recovery was my passion and the 1 of the things that truly changed me as a teacher. I was heartbroken when my district 86ed the program. And while I enjoyed being the literacy specialist I really missed being in the classroom and teaching my own class. So I decided to go back and I've been there every since. It went like this: Kinder, reading recovery, first grade, literacy specialist, second, fifth, second!
4.) When did you start blogging?
June of 2012. I did it because I wanted to join the Daily 5 book study that is going on right now. I had no idea I'd enjoy it so much. It's one of the funnest things I've done lately as far as education goes! I love meeting new people and sharing ideas and resources/materials. I wish Texas would do one of those bloggie meet ups!
5.) Share some blogging tips or a resource.
Since I'm super new I am still learning all the tips but I would have to say that I really like reading entries that are about something...not just contests, give aways etc. I think those are awesome but I really enjoy reading about ideas, seeing pictures, sharing documents etc. I also really enjoy the blogs that are neatly designed. Sometimes blogs have so many things on the sides that a person with my ADHD gets a little overwhelmed. As soon as possible, I am going to hire a graphic designer to help me spruce mine up and add the side bars that I want for my blog!
That's a little about me! Hope you come on back!
I am working on my documents that I am going to post here for you to grab to celebrate having 50 followers! Check back soon!
Keep Coming Back
