A New Adventure

Welcome to Kicking it in First!

This is my second attempt at blogging. Last year, I tried to start a blog and just couldn't keep up with it, with the stress of everything going on. I thought about just reviving that blog, but decided I needed a fresh start. Since the end of last school year, I have moved and now live with my fiance, we have gotten an adorable new puppy, his name is Kevin and he is a goldendoodle, and I have gotten a new job. The past two years I have taught second grade. I loved it, and had an amazing teaching partner, who I am going to miss tremendously! She helped get me through last year. The school I taught at last year was in Minneapolis. This year I am teaching in the middle of the country, so a complete change, and I couldn't be more excited for that. The big city wasn't for me.

At my new school, as you could probably figure, I will be teaching firsties! I am so excited! First grade is a grade I have wanted to teach since I started. I love the little ones. At my new school, I am lucky to have a few ipads to use in my classroom, and brand new reading curriculum. The school just made the switch to Journey's. The girls I will be working with are open to not just going based of the curriculum, and want to work together. I love collaborating among my teammates.

 Besides teaching next year, I will also be coaching a brand new Dance Team at my school, and planning my wedding. We are getting married July 19th, 2014. It is finally less than a year away! On my other computer I have my color inspiration board, which I will have to share soon. I have a few freebies in the works, and a couple of units I have been working on that I can't wait to share.

Thanks for checking out my new blog and I hope you start following. Also, you can find the link to my instagram account up top, and I love to share pictures on there! I will leave you with a picture of my adorable little pup!
