What Do You Do With a Chance? by Kobi Yamanda is AMAZING, and it’s definitely coming home with me today. I also feel like I was meant to read it today. Life is full of opportunities and chances. Sometimes, our fear of the unknown holds us back and this book reminded me that we have to step forward and take a chance. And taking a chance, even when it doesn’t work out, is still better than not going for it at all. ❤️
Hiiiiiii teaching community!!!!! I have a lot of new friends around here so I thought I would reintroduce myself to all you beautiful folks! 1). I LOVE being an educator. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher(minus the small time I wanted to be a vet when I was 9) and I am so grateful to be a part of such an amazing profession! 2). I have taught for 7 years-4 years in second grade and 3 years in 5th grade! 3.) I became a mom in December and it is so much fun! Seriously! I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know I wanted to be a mom. 4). I am addicted to coffee, sweet tea, and tacos. It’s seriously why my pants don’t fit! 😂 5). I am obsessed with books. I read ALL the time and love sharing that excitement with my students. 6). My favorite color is purple. Don’t fight me on that....it’s literally the only color that matters. 🤷🏼♀️ 7). I’m a Rocky Top girl! Give me some Tennessee college Vols football. I don’t care about the rest! 🍊 #gbo 8). I really like to sing. I am not the best at it, but it brings me a lot of joy. I also like to sing in the classroom which REALLY freaks the kiddos out at the beginning of each school year! I am so honored that you are hanging out with me on the social media education journey! Let me know what grade you teach! I would love to connect with you.
Teaching accounts in the summer can be hard to keep up because we are all torn between enjoying our summer and wanting to get some things ready for the new school year! I love the classroom challenge that Ashley from @buildingbooklove has been hosting over on her account! Looking for inspiration? Wanting to get ready for the new year at your own pace? Just like playing around with classroom design? Hop on over to her account to learn more!

“Children are made readers in the laps of their parents.”—Emilie Buchwald Readers also grow in classrooms that encourage and foster a love for reading that is based on student choice and reading enjoyment—not AR, not reading logs, not forced reading, not “level only” reading experiences, but in classrooms where teachers show their love for books, talk books, read books, share books, and help students ignite a passion for stories and information. #teachersofinstagram #readtoyourkids #readersgonnaread #teachersfollowteachers #iteach #teacherkid #iteachfifth #iteach5th
