New Bloggers Blog Hop!

I am so glad that I came across this blog hop! What a great way to meet other bloggers and see other great blogs. I am new to blogging for teaching, so I am grateful for things like this.

A special thanks to Janis at Grade Three is the Place for Me! for starting this. For all the other newbies out there, link up and answer these questions:

1. What state are you in?
2. Your current teaching position.
3. Your teaching experience.
4. When you started blogging.
5. Share a blogging tip/blogging resource.

1. I live in beautiful Colorado.
2. I teach second grade.
3. I have been teaching for three years-all in second grade.
4. I started my teaching blog about a month ago, and it is definitely a work in progress as I figure out what I'm doing! I've had a personal blog (that I seriously neglect) for a few years.
5. When I first started blog "stalking", I noticed how great some of the blogs looked, and I had no idea how to make that happen. So, I happened to come across some great gals at The Honey Bunch Blog Designs who put together a great looking blog page for me. Never think your blog can't look just as amazing as all the other ones out there!


  1. Love your blog. Lots of great ideas. I found your blog through the new blog linky. I am enjoying reading all these new blogs. Now I have a collection of 2nd grade ones as well.

    1. Thanks Sandy! I'm headed over now to check your blog out. I'm having so much fun seeing all the different blogs!

  2. Your blog is so pretty. Looking at the Blog Hop buttons, tells me that I should get an original blog design, too. There are a lot of blogs that look just like mine! LOL!

    1. It was so easy...since I didn't have to do it, that is! I just told them what I had in mind and poof...there it was! Thanks for checking my blog out! Can't wait to see yours!

  3. I am always on the lookout for CO bloggers. My friend Stephanie from Falling Into First lives in Littleton. There aren't all that many of you (so she says) so when I do come across one of you guys, it always makes me smile. Honey Bunch did a great job on your blog (I had to hire someone too . . . let's just say I'm not all the tech savvy).

    1. I actually live in Colorado Springs and make my way to the outskirts of Littleton for a lot of things...Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Lakeshore Learning Store, and it helps that IKEA is right around there, too! I will have to check her blog, and yours (of course!), out! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Looking at your blog makes me want to play aroud with gadgets and backgrounds again...I love the feel of your blog!
