Meet the Teachers

My favorite blogger ever, Cara Carroll, is brilliantly hosting a link party for all of us teachers to meet one another. I LOVE reading teacher blogs everyday. My blog addiction started with my personal blog, Completely Claire, and now I try to manage both. Whew!! I love finding new blogs & new ideas. Some of my favorites are school blogs, DIY craft blogs, sewing blogs, and of course any blog with a cute little baby on it! Head on over to The First Grade Parade to play along!

Found your blog through Cara's Meet The Teacher, and I'm glad I did. I always like finding other young teachers- I'm in my first year!

And I wish that I had never eaten a banana, I think they are gross! So my advice would be to never decide to eat one :)

Janae said...

You are too cute! I have a student teacher this semester and she is wonderful! I love it. :) Hope you are enjoying it.

ps I LOVE bananas and am slightly offended you have never even tried one. ;)

I LOVE your handwriting fairy post.... goodness knows some of my kiddos could use a little extra incentive! :)

Best of luck!
