Meet The Teacher!

Welcome to my blog!  So glad you're here. Hope you can stay a while...

My name is Amy.  I am a first grade teacher in a small(ish) city in Virginia. I have taught for six years and I absolutely love my job (most days anyway...).

This is me.
I am newly married to this guy. I'm a very lucky girl.

His name is Andy, and besides being handsome...he is the sweetest, funniest, most humble person I've ever met.  He is pretty awesome. I have not always been exactly lucky in love so finding him has literally been a dream come true. I am very excited about our future together.

 He's a firefighter, so most of my school work and blogging takes place during his 24 hour shifts away from home when I'm missing him.

Luckily, I have this little man to keep me company when he's at work.

This is Sawyer.  He's a stinker.  A really cute stinker but a stinker nonetheless.


He is pretty much the center of our little world and we like it that way.  (and so does Sawyer).

I teach at an awesome public school with some pretty fantastic people.  I've wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember and I like to make learning FUN for my sweet kiddos (and for me!).   I discovered some awesome teaching blogs a few years ago that have influenced my teaching so's amazing! They are the reason that I decided to start this blog.  I think the collaboration happening online is just unbelievable.  It never ceases to amaze me how generous people in the teaching profession can be. 

I hope that my blog can be a tiny part of that awesome collaboration and sharing.

Happy teaching to you!
