Teachers Pay Teachers!

I have always wanted to be a teacher for as long as I remember. I earned a degree in English and teaching certificates in Elementary Education K-8 and English K-12. I have taught in both public and private schools, including kindergarten for nine years. I've begun a new journey teaching 3rd grade in the 2013-2014 school year, but am keeping this site running for educators seeking early childhood and elementary lesson and classroom management resources. You can visit my 3rd grade blog at http://thethirdgradelearningspot.blogspot.com/
My hobbies include surfing the net, reading, photography, crafts, gardening, swimming, yoga, and traveling. So far, I have visited the entire East Coast, Thousand Islands, California, Canada, Bahamas, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Mexico, England, Scotland, and Ireland. Here are a few of my favorite things:
Food- Italian, Mexican, chocolate chip mint ice cream cones, mom's homemade potato salad
Animal- whales and dolphins
Flower- red gerbera
Children's Authors- Eric Carle, Robert Munsch, Mo Williems
Children's Musicians- Dr. Jean, Jack Hartman
Thanks to these graphic artists who helped make my site nice to look at!
