Tell us a little bit about your blog and why you started it.
My blog Lessons Learned is just that - as it's little subtitle says, from the classroom and beyond. We are the teachers, but the truth is we are still learning little lessons every single day, from our own students or just in life and it is up to us how we choose to apply those lessons.
Tell us about yourself.
This is my 5th year in a classroom but my 2nd year with my own (took a long time to get there, which you can read about on my blog). I work mainly with 1st graders. Last year I taught a class of 19 1st-graders. This year I see almost 50 something students throughout the day in small groups, assisting them in either math or reading. I absolutely love taking creative and hands-on approaches to my teaching and I am always looking for new ideas.
I am also a contributing author, as well as administrating author at Teaching Blog Addict.
I am in charge of the linky parties over there, and all those wonderful Freebie Fridays - you know, these?
I am also a proud aunt, sister, and daughter. I love to have fun, relax and most of all I try not to take myself so seriously.
What do you think makes your blog different from others?
I believe my blog is a little different from others because of what I offer - a little bit of seriousness, a lit bit of humor, and most of all I tell it like it is from my perspective. I offer ideas that have been tried and tested.
