I did two looping years- one from 3rd to 4th and one from 2nd to 3rd. I highly recommend looping if you ever have the opportunity! Your rules, procedures, classroom community, and relationships with families are already in place. The kiddos know your expectations and you know exactly where they are academically and where they need to go. While everyone else in the building is practicing lining up, your class will be off to the races!!
Anyway, I digress! My last year in the classroom was back in second grade. You will see tons of stuff for kindergarten and second grade in my TpT shop because those are my most recent experiences. In the meantime, I've moved into the role of media specialist...and I am lovin' it! You can look forward to materials for the media center in terms of decor and most importantly in terms of research for all ages.
As for me personally, I have 3 sons - let's call them Big, Middle, and Little- and a fabulous husband of almost 15 years. I L.O.V.E. the beach and a good book, Starbucks (not the coffee...the frufru drinks), regular old coffee with cream and sugar, singing, and gardening. I am trying to convince myself that I love running, too. ;)
I hope you'll come back to see what I'm up to professionally with a little of my personal life thrown in as well! Please consider following my blog, my TpT store, my Instagram, and my Facebook. All of the links are on my homepage.
