One thing I am striving for with my move to 3rd grade is to foster and encourage collaboration in my classroom. I see time and time again students who don’t know how to work together or how to be respectful towards their peers!

Hello my long lost teacher friends! I have been SO busy that I have not been able to blog in months. Too much RTI, PLC, DRA, PDAS, etc etc. I know you can relate!! :)
I’m on Spring Break this week and so I am here to share a Spring Break Writing FREEBIE with you! I used this last year and I will be using it next week, too.
This little ole’ blog has sure seen some tumbleweeds the couple of months. I’ve been a little busy teaching routines and wrangling six year olds and making sure no one got lost and tying shoes and OH YEAH, teaching!
I’m sure you can relate.

Cue the carols. And the holiday treats!

Here are 4 things that I’d like parents to know about me as a teacher.
