Thank you for visiting my blog! This is a season for firsts for me.
This is my first blog, I have created a teachers pay teachers store for the first time, and I'm planning to create a youtube channel. These are all new experiences for me and I am excited to see how I will learn and grow as a result.

I have been teaching now for 15 years and have a range of classroom experiences from kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th grades. I earned my master's degree in educational administration this June with the support of my wife and daughter. Though I have the preauthorization for my administration credential, I plan to remain in the classroom for the time being.

In my experience, the classroom is a dynamic and demanding environment. It is a balance of the science of teaching and the art of human relations. The classroom is the place of great highs and lows. My assumptions and beliefs are challenged there and I am stretched and grown each school year. I have come to find that I must seek out my colleagues for support and I reciprocate in kind. The answers to our challenges come from within our professional learning community and I have found my coworkers to be a second family for me.

I hope to get better every year. I wish to change lives for the better. I want to aide my students to be what they are created for. I strive to do this with love and kindness.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and read my note!
God Bless,
