Blog Hop

I saw this Cristina Bainbridge's site and thought it would be perfect for my first post!

1. What state are you in?

2.  What is your current teaching position?
I am a first grade teacher.

3. What is your teaching experience?
I've taught first grade for the past five years at the same school.  Before that I was a parapro for a year in a second grade class.

4. When did you start blogging?
Well, this is my first post! I've been reading teaching blogs since late 2010 and finally decided to start one of my own!

5. Share some blogging tips or a resource.
I always wondered how teachers made such fabulous lesson plans and finally found a tutorial on Amy Lemons' blog.  I started playing around with Power Point and it was so much easier than Word.

I can't wait to add some of the things I've made to this site!  Off to figure out how exactly to do that!


  1. Welcome to blogging Liz! I hope you love it as much as I do.

    I love using Powerpoint and use it for everything now! =)

    I am happy to be your first follower and a 1st grade teacher too! I would love for you to hop over and visit me when you get the chance. =)
