Budding Blog Linky

My school has a big fundraiser tomorrow. 
It's called the Tiger Trot.
There is a 5K and a 1 mile run.
I'm so excited to run the one mile with my daughter.
I'll try and post some pictures tomorrow.
I have to get up early tomorrow, so I'll make this post short.
I'm linking up with Jess from I {Heart} Recess.
It is a linky for those of us who are relatively new to the blogging world.


1. Why did you start blogging?
I was following quite a few blogs and loved reading about all the different teaching ideas.
My teammates always seem to like my ideas, so I decided to share them with others.
My blog has now become a way for me to reflect on my teaching
and find ways to make myself a better teacher.

2. What is your favorite subject to teach and why?
I LOVE to teach math.  In college, I started as a math major.
Pre-calculus was too hard, so I moved down to elementary school.
Math is my favorite because I love the challenge of solving a problem.
I enjoy hearing about the different ways kids solve problems
and then comparing their strategies to mine.

3. Describe your teaching style.
I'm not sure that I can explain my style.
It's all over the place.
I try to create and teach in a fun way that will
have the kids involved in their own learning.
I prefer to stay away from the worksheets that come
with our math and reading series.
My goal for next year is to incorporate more technology
to help my students learn.

4. Give three interesting facts about you.
- I was on the pom pom squad in high school.
- I don't like to perform/speak in front of people.
- I'm a great cook, but only if there is a recipe to follow.
5. Do you have a TpT store? If yes, post the link :)
Here's to a great weekend!


  1. Found you through Budding Blog. Love your site. Can't wait to dig in. Good luck on your race!

  4. I am new to the blogging world--Started end of March. I'll answer your questions...
    1. Can be answered in my first post, although I have learned all about TpT and TN since then, so now I really want to make Teacher Resources too.
    2. Favorite subject to teach is math! Just like you. I actually passed the AP Calculus test in high school, but I loved having young kids understand math concepts.
    3. Teaching style would be hands-on. Love activities, white boards, and movement.
    4. Interesting things....humm
    I biked from Los Angeles to Salt Lake with friends when I was 17 and that's how I got to college : ) No need to buy an airplane ticket!
    I love organizing drawers.
    I have 5 kids--large families are few here in Los Angeles, so I'm always getting the comment "Well, you have your hands full!"
    5. My TpT store is but I don't have any products yet--I'm working on them.

    Thanks for the get to know you!
