And a new teacher blog starts

My Teaching Background

Well, I guess, welcome to my blog. I have been teaching for 9 years now all at the same school.  So far all of that has been in 5th grade. While it has all been in 5th grade, I have taught all sorts of different models: self-contained, trading students with partners, a gifted cluster class, collaboration with EBD special education and a gifted self-contained classroom.  
For most of my years in the classroom, I served the gifted population of students as their classroom teacher- some years they have been pulled out for additional services and sometimes not. I love gifted students! Everyday is an ever changing world with gifted students (like it is with all students).
Now, I am transitioning to a new position within my school- 3rd-5th grade accelerated content teacher.  Right now, I will be teaching 3rd-5th AC Math and a multi-age 4th and 5th grade language arts class (reading and writing), but like all things in teaching that could change.

On a Personal Note

On a personal note I have been married for 17 and half years (wow that seems like a really, really long time).  My husband and I have 2 children: a son who is almost 18 and a 2 year old daughter. My daughter is the only one who will let me post a picture (my husband and son rarely even consent to getting their pictures taken). So here is my crazy 2 year old-  in all her summer glory-(And yes, notice the lovely shag green carpet)
