Hi everyone!! Please be patient with me as I am totally new to the blogging world. I have had a class website for about 5 years but having a blog is a learning experience. I have been teaching for 17 years mainly in the lower grades. Currently I teach first grade in Temecula California. I job shared for 7 years so I could raise my sweet babies when they were young. I have been married for 15 years and have 2 amazing kids. My children have been at the school I teach at the entire time...except this time my daughter is moving up to MIDDLE SCHOOL!!! I love teaching and can't imagine doing anything different! It is such a blessing to be in this profession and I thank God for it daily! I love to swim and run and have been a competitive swimmer. I now run 5 and 10K's and half marathons. I hope you enjoy learning about my classroom as we all share ideas together!! God bless you!!
