Hi there! I was inspired to create this blog after reading some of the AMAZING teacher blogs out there. I've found tons of wonderful K-2 blogs as well as some great 3rd grade blogs, but not quite as many designed by 4th and 5th grade teachers. I also thought this would be a good way to keep thoughts, ideas, and tips organized {even if they do not always turn out as "fabulous" as I had planned!} for future use.

This is my fourth year of teaching, but my first year teaching 5th grade and let me tell you, I have learned so much this year! I have previously taught K, 1st, and 2nd and honestly thought I'd never want to teach anything above second back then. I've grown to LOVE 5th, though, because the students are so much more independent. However, having said that, students are also so much more INDEPENDENT...meaning they have a mind of their own sometimes and many have middle school attitudes already. This seriously makes for some challenges sometimes, but I still wake up each morning loving my job. I thank God for it every single day and know there is absolutely nothing else I would rather be doing...even on those not so fabulous days.
