Just wanted to thank everyone for their support during the TPT cyber sale : ) I spent the last few days at a Common Core Training in Albany! I got a lot of really good information based on a new reading program that NYS is planning to adopt. I am sure my district will be choosing to go with it as well. I am hoping that the next training I go to I can get more information because I think that this program will be great but I am very curious about how it will all come together! Since I am just getting back from a crazy long weekend and a three day training... I will post again with the new things I am planning for the run before Winter Break : ) Thanks again for all of your support!!

There is no day better to start my very own teacher blog than Thanksgiving. With that I say Happy Thanksgiving to all of you out there! I have been teaching for 6 years in Special Education. I teach a 15:1 self contained classroom and I absolutely love it. I am so very thankful for my job and the wonderful children I get to teach every day. They are hilarious. I would not trade anything to be without my special Second Graders because they truly are the best! I am also thankful for my wonderful husband, family and friends because without them, I wouldn't be able to do any of the things I am thankful for. I am VERY thankful for one of my very best friends Gina who helped me get the courage to start up this journey and being able to communicate with amazing teachers all over the country. Thank you Gina!! You can find her over there!

I am working on a few things to add to my TPT page so I can participate in the Cyber sale they are having! Please check out my store:

I will post about the cyber sale soon! Please check back!!
