Hi there! I'm Kelly and I live in Ohio! I graduated from Ohio University (I heart Athens, Ohio!) and started my teaching career as a reading intervention teacher. This was challenging work and I loved it, but I had the opportunity to move into a classroom of my own so I continued my journey to second grade at an amazing school. It's a place where we work hard each day but take the time to show we genuinely care about one another and our fabulous students. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many talented teachers and sweet children. I have been there for the past 8 years! (WOW!!) Time flies when you're having fun! I love teaching second grade! It is a wonderful age and grade where the students learn so much! I enjoy creating hands-on, engaging, fun (and cute :)) activities for my students.
I am a mom to my new little baby! My husband and I just adore him! Being new parents has been an awesome and at times a challenging experience for us thus far. We go from sublimely happy to extremely sleep-deprived on a daily basis! Ha! Let's just say the coffee is always on at our house! :)
I also enjoy reading, running, cooking, and spending time with my little family.
I recently started this blog in January 2014 after following many amazing teachers for years I wanted to get involved too! I love sharing ideas, learning new things, and getting advice from other educators. I hope this blog will be a great resource for others and help me connect with teachers from all over.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Hope to see you again soon!
