I am the proud mom of a beautiful 10 year old little girl. She is my world! I graduated from Texas A&M in 2000 and taught first grade for eleven years,second grade for two years and am now starting my newest adventure in fourth grade!
I am honored to be the 2012 District Elementary Teacher of the Year for Lamar Consolidated ISD.
I was inspired by so many creative teachers and began my blog in 2010 as a way to collaborate, share and give back to an amazing community of teachers!
I absolutely love the websites Reading Rockets and Colorin Colorado! They are full of wonderful information for teachers, parents and students on a wide variety of language acquisition and reading development skills. As I was looking through their site, I found a wonderful idea for parents to keep their students engaged in reading over the summer. Reading Rockets has a series of themed literacy bags complete with book suggestions, a list of materials and ideas for each theme. You have got to check these out....they have done a great job in helping parents battle those dread summer blues and have fun reading as well!!
