I have been toying with the idea of creating a blog for some time now. I enjoy reading other "teacher blogs" and have finally decided to take the leap. So... Hello Blogosphere!
I don't know what finally made me decide to venture into the blogging world. It could be the fact that I finally watched "The Social Network" last night. Wow.
A little about me. I am a fourth grade teacher. This year. In my five years of teaching, I have taught preschool, fifth grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, and fourth grade. At the beginning of each school year, I have felt like a new teacher all over again. I teach Reading, Writing, and Social Studies to two classes and my co-teacher teaches Math, Spelling, and Science to both classes. Although the weight of teaching Reading in an Ohio Achievement Assessed-grade level is very heavy on me, I truly enjoy finding new and innovative ways to teach it. This is where my love of the Internet comes into play. I have learned so much just surfing the web and reading what other teachers are doing. I hope that I have something to contribute as well.
