As I type these first words, I am realizing that I am officially a blogger. I am so excited. Well, actually... "no", I think it could be more anxious. Maybe, even nauseous. I get those two confused all the time. But, I will push through my blogging reservations to complete my first post.
Breathe.....ok....here I go:
This blog, my life, and my teaching are a work in progress. I hope to share what I have learned in my 17 years of teaching, as well as, what I am learning on a day-to-day basis about myself, my students, and my profession.
Now, I am a little worried that my blog title might lead people to believe I am a bit narcissistic, but actually, every darn, cute phrase with the word "second" or "2nd" was grabbed up long ago. Trust me, I looked.
I am actually just a humble mom of two wonderful children, a wife of almost 12 years, a "foodie" (aka: a food snob), a hiker and lover of all things outdoors, and a teacher who has been teaching 2nd grade for 8 years and absolutely loves it!
I am excited to meet and talk with all of you classroom warriors and heroes out there. So, pardon my dust...and let's talk teaching!
Ok, that wasn't too bad. I think I can do this.
