Welcome to my new blog! This is my first attempt at blogging, so please bare with me as I figure things out. I am a second grade teacher in southeastern Wisconsin. In 16 1/2 days (not that I'm counting), I will finish my fourth year of teaching. For my first two years, I taught first grade in the inner city before I moved to my current district. My time in first grade gave me a passion for teaching reading and writing to young kids. So, I plan to use this blog as a way to share my reflections, wonderings, classroom experiments, and findings related to best practices in primary literacy education. Please follow me as I learn and grow as an educator!
