Newbie blog hop


I'm joining up with Janis at Grade Three is the Place for Me and her newbie blog hop. I'm not sure if I'm newbie enough, but I've only been blogging since April, so I figured I qualify. Plus, there's so much I clearly don't know about blogging, maybe I'll learn something. Not that I'll have time to implement it anymore, since summer is really about over. Sigh. I AM looking forward to routine, though. I really get so much more done when there's a time crunch.Procrastinate much?

So here's the information to share:
1. State I live in: AZ. Have you been here? No? Turn your oven on to 350 degrees. Stick your head in it. Now you have. No, it really is beautiful here. Especially from Nov.- April.
2.Current teaching position: 1st grade at a Christian school. I moved up in this school from the prek, and I cried at first, cuz I loved prek, but I also love 1st grade.
3. Teaching experience: This is my 11th year, at various grades. My first year was a multi-age classroom and I had 25 kids in grades 1-3. Yikes. Those poor kids. I'm not sure if they learned ANYTHING that year.
4.When I started blogging: April, during spring  break. I have learned a TON.
5. Blogging tip: Teaching Blog Addict has a blogging 101 tab. I learned alot there. Ehow also taught me some things. There's also a post out there somewhere that taught me how to get rid of the automatic "I'm not a robot" thing. I don't remember where it is, though! But I'm pretty sure Jessica Stanford has blogged about it.

I think that's it about me! I wrote on my very first post that I won't call you my "sweet friends" b/c I'm just not that kinda girl, but I love reading all your posts, and I learn alot from all of you, so THANK YOU!!!!!!

Thanks for reading!
