October Curriculum Map

Well it has been a hot minute since I have written a post and let me tell you, it’s not because I don’t want to! BUT doing my new little TK class and having Amelia (who has been sick pretty much the entire time she’s been back to school #kidgerms) hasn’t left me a ton […]

Monday Vegas Sessions

Day 1 of Vegas! I can’t tell you how much I LOVE coming out here and getting to meet all of the wonderful teachers and learn from all of you. No WAY do I think I’m the expert so if you came to my sessions today and got nothing out of them…lie on your feedback…I […]

What is TK?

Let me go ahead and start off by saying that I never dreamed that I would be walking out of my Kindergarten classroom to teach something other than what I have been doing. When I first moved in to that classroom, I thought that surely I would be there for 30+ years doing what I […]

March Kindergarten Activities

February is coming to an end (can I get an amen!? What is it about this month!?) So I’m ready to start talking March 🙂 March is also the month that I’m going back to school to finish out the year with my kiddos after my maternity leave is finished so I’m a little anxious […]
