Blog Hop!

I guess techinically this is for newbie bloggers... but I thought I'd link up to say hello and find some new blogs to follow as well!  I'm not sure who organized the hop, but I found it at Grade 3 is the Place for Me!


1.)  What state are you in?

2.)  What is your current teaching position?
I just finished a stint of teaching a 1st/2nd split class for two years, did four years of 2nd before that, and have been hired in a new district to teach 3rd grade ELA.  I'm super excited!

3.)  What is your teaching experience??
See the answer to question two!  I also taught preschool for two years before getting hired for 2nd grade.

4.)  When did you start blogging?
June of 2011- it's one of the best things I've done professionally!  I love meeting new, amazing teachers and sharing ideas in this way.

5.)  Share some blogging tips or a resource.
A bloggy tip... in the beginning it's really easy to get swept up in the number of followers you have and people always want to know how they can get more quickly.  Blogging is all about relationships and networking- if you want your blog to grow, visit other blogs!  Leave comments and interact with other bloggers.  Share ideas!  Share stories!  Share pictures!  Blogging is an amazing way to enhance your classroom and yourself professionally... as well as make new friends!

Off to hop and through and meet some new bloggy friends!
