Classroom Photos

I just returned from an awesome, restful vacation at Lakeway Resort and Spa in Lakeway, Texas.  I got some much needed R&R, and now I'm feeling like working in my classroom!  I will be posting before and after photos soon, but in the meantime I thought that I would share some photos from last year's classroom.

I'm Back!!

Well,  I have been on what was a very long break.  During that time I have continued to be busy teaching second grade at the same school.  I still love it, but I am enjoying a much needed break.  I will be posting pics of this year's classroom very soon...stay tuned.

Classroom Photos






I finally found some photos from last year's classroom (at the end of the year).  Last year I was team teaching and only taught ELA and social studies.  This year I am self contained and teach all subjects.  My room is MUCH better this year, but I'll get to those later...

Followers

I'm so excited to have three followers!!  I am now feeling some pressure to say something.  Unfortunately, I chose the wrong time to begin a blog.... Christmas break.  This of course is one of the few times of the year when I am supposed to keep my mind off of the classroom.  I just can't do it.  I am embarrassed to admit that I have been working on lesson plans for January.  I like to get ahead whenever possible.  Anyway, I hope to post classroom photos when I get back to school.  That is one of my favorite things about blog hopping.  I LOVE to see other teacher's classrooms.  You'll get to see my classroom in a couple of weeks.... more later...!

Great iPad App For Teachers

I bought a new iPad2 this past summer.  It took me a while to  really start to understand all of the wonderful ways that teachers can utilize it.  One of the best apps that I have found for teacher productivity is called Notability.  Notability is not just your everyday note taking app. I use it for taking notes during our planning meetings.  For example, when we are planning a unit, I can use Notability to type (or write by hand) ideas, insert photos, and/or add voice recordings right into the document.  It is another reason why the iPad is such a wonderful tool for teachers!

Welcome to My Blog!!

Welcome to my blog!  I am just so excited that I finally took the plunge and tried it for myself.  I have been lurking on other people's blogs for about a year now, and I finally got brave and decided to give it a try.  I just cannot tell you how much I admire some of the blogs from fellow teachers that I have been following, and I just thought that it was time to see what I could do. We'll see.... :-)
