Blog Hop Take 2!

And I'm off on yet another Blog Hop! Last time I did this it was a Daily 5 Blog Hop, but somehow I missed that fact! Not that I'm not a fan of the Daily 5, but I had read the book years ago, didn't have it at home with me, and they were wanted posts that had to do with the Daily 5! Ooops!! This one is for a Newbie bloggers, and although I started a blog a few years ago, I never did much with it. Therefore, I definitely consider myself a NEWBIE!

So, if you're a newbie, too, I hope you'll link up and answer these questions:

1. what state you are 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 Texas, but I'm "from" Vermont.

2. I currently teach 5th grade, but I also act as the school's reading specialist, ESL director, and UIL director.

3. I've taught 3rd, 5th, 6th, and college-level courses. I also taught music for a year before I was certified. I've taught in three different states: Arizona, Texas, and Vermont. I've taught in public schools and private schools, small schools (with as few as 5 students in 1 grade) and larger schools.

4. Officially I started my first blog on March 7, 2009. This was a blog intended to help my family keep up with our lives as we lived halfway across the country. However, it was quickly forgotten as Facebook replaced it! I started my teaching blog less than 2 months ago on June 4, 2012.

5. My blogging tip would be to label your posts! I find this really helpful when I'm looking at other blogs!

Happy blog hopping, friends!


  1. I found you on the blog hop! Wow you have a lot of experience and it sounds like you where a lot of hats at school too! You must stay pretty busy! Labeling posts is something I'm not very good at, so that is a great tip for new bloggers! It makes sense!
    I'd love if you'd stop by my blog too. I'm trying to share some helpful tips here and there!

    1. I'm so glad you stopped by! I do stay very busy, but it's all worth it! Heading over to take a peek at your blog now!
