A Little about me!I love teaching first grade. Some mornings I jump out of bed excited to start the day with my little ones. I live in NY and drive over a large bridge to teach in a wonderful little town called Highgate, Vermont! I am a chocoholic and I love my once a day Diet Coke! I am a crafter, always looking for great Christmas projects to make for others. This week I am saying good bye to my two terrific kids Catherine and Bobbie who are both off to school. It will be pretty quiet around here without them:(
How long have you been teaching?Well I started my teaching career by subbing for about 7 years before I landed in a warm and beautiful school in Highgate. I am starting my 22nd year! I'm feeling old.....
You may not know....I started my career wanting to save the earth in Natural Resource Management. Soil Science and Chemistry were not for me. Once I changed to Early Childhood Development everything just clicked for me. I loved it. Another little fact about me is..... I am one of 12 children! I have family all over the US and I love them all. We all grew up in Maine and I try to go back each summer to reconnect!
What are you most looking forward to this school year!I am looking for to skyping with fellow blogger Laurie Hilton over at Morning Sun First Grade. I am so excited to connect with another first grade. I am also very excited about using our new ipod touches. They will be a great addition to our program.
Things I need to work onThis year I will need to work on my time management! I want to do it all. I need to figure out how to be more efficient while I am at school. I also want to work on keeping my desk neat and cleaned off.
What teaching supplies can you not live without?My computer is my most important teaching tool. I have an extensive picture book collection and I couldn't teach without all my books. I think I'm obsessed with them.

School starts for me tomorrow with Teacher In-service! I am excited and looking forward to a new year!
