Finally Taking the Blogging Plunge...

Hello fellow teacher bloggers! I am so excited and nervous about starting a teaching blog!  I have finally decided to start my own blog after blog stalking for the past 3 years :) I'm somewhat of a perfectionist...okay I am a SERIOUS perfectionist when it comes to anything related to teaching so up until this point I just didn't feel like I could add blogging to my never ending to do list. So here it goes!

First off, let me introduce myself.  I am 29 years old and will be starting my 7th year teaching this fall.  I have been teaching kindergarten for 5 years, and wouldn't have it any other way.  There's just something special about the amount of growth and change that can be accomplished in one short year with my little kinders.  I recently completed my master's program in reading as well, which means hopefully I will have a little extra time on my hands without homework to look forward to every night :)  

In my life outside teaching (sometimes I like to think I have one) I have been married for 5 years to my wonderful husband and we are anxiously expecting our first child this November! What better time to start blogging right? Okay, okay, so my motives may be a bit selfish because I am planning on becoming a stay at home mom after our little girl arrives. Life without teaching just seems a bit scary to me, so I'm hoping blogging and following all the other wonderful teacher bloggers out there will help me to stay connected to the teaching world.  That being said I just can't resist posting one of our sweet little girls first pictures...

Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to sharing all kinds of ideas with you all soon!

:) Jess
