Starting Again

VERY formerly know as the blogger behind the short-lived blog, Fantastic in First, I am trying to restart what I love about my job...sharing tips and tricks I've learned during my teaching career.  I love the atmosphere and camaraderie of teacher blogging and think I have a lot to contribute to it.  Do I have a ton to learn about it...yes.  The past few years since I blogged have been full of amazing ups and downs...four miscarriages, followed by the birth of our fantastic daughter, who I will affectionately call "K."  K is now two and a half and I am really loving this time of exploring and learning with her.  During that time, I also moved back down to my real, true teaching love, Kindergarten.  Aside from my family and my home, teaching is my hobby and passion.  This year I will begin my 12th year of teaching.  I am moving to a bigger room this year and am really excited to get in and start setting up.  My team and I are completely changing up our curriculum this year to make it more rigorous to meet the common core standards, so this year is going to be interesting and exciting and, as always, exhausting.  I hope to have many valuable things to share with you!  Stay tuned...
