Welcome to Firstie Land!

Hello to all my fellow Fab Firsties! I'm excited to be launching my blog's been a long time coming.  First, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'm a mom to two boys, 16 and longer babies and I miss that so much! My youngest is getting ready to drive a car (YIKES!) and my oldest finished college a couple years ago and is living many states away with a wonderful career and girlfriend.  So do you know what that gives me? TIME.  I finally have time to create and write about my passion, teaching! I've been a teacher for 29 years.  I spent many years teaching kindergarten - 21 years to be exact.  I'm not sure how I kept my sanity ever left, but a few years ago I graduated to First Grade and I love it.  I work with a great team of teachers and I love my little firsties. I'm so happy to be able to share with you, in my blog,  some of the tried and true methods that I know work with kids.  Many years of experience has helped me understand what works and what doesn't.  But I am also one of those teachers that always wants to learn and try new things.  I love browsing Pinterest for new ideas, reading other blogs from talented teachers and shopping on TPT for great products that make my life so much easier.  I plan on sharing all that and more on my blog.  So thanks for reading and I hope you come along for the ride.....we have a lot of fun in Firstie Land!
