It's March already! Where did the time go?? Last week was so busy; with our class performance at the Midnight Rooster, the Read Across America celebration, and trying to squeeze in progress reports.

I am so proud of my 2nd graders performing their reader's theater play Hansel & Gretel and the Creepy Woods by Jeannette Jaquish. That script and others can be found at They really rocked it! Not only did they get in character, had expression, but also remembered their lines WITHOUT their scripts! That'll really be an event to remember. Check out their play and other pictures from Read Across America Day.

Gotta Start Somewhere....

Teaching is something that I am very passionate about, as well as golfing, shopping, technology, children's books, and now blogging. The truth is, I really enjoy a lot of things and like to combine my interests if ever possible. I started a class website a few years ago on It was a really great way to build a quick and easy site showing parents what we were doing each week. Templates were already in place for me to put events on a calendar, upload photos, documents, and videos. Then, a few months ago I came across several teacher blogs on this site. They were filled with student activities, and teacher ideas while still showing the teacher's personality and standing out. I enjoyed searching the sites so much that I thought I would finally give it a try. has been really good to me, however, I think its time to give this a go. Hopefully, this site will not only serve my students' parents, but also many teachers who can take just as many great ideas from me, as I have learned from them.
