An Amazing Surprise

For once, I'm nearly speechless. I just received news that my blog was chosen as one of the Top 10 Teaching Blogs on I am shocked and honored. You can read about my blog (and 9 other blogs that I admire) by clicking on the link below.

Less than a year ago, I decided to "mess around" with blogger one day and attempt to create my own blog. Before ya know it, I had a blog with a name that my mom and my daughter helped me choose.   Then came the new design, from Kristen at Ladybug Teaching Resources. The stars must have been aligned just right a few days later when I was accepted as an author for TBA.  Within another month, I had Tpt store. A couple months later I started a Teachers Notebook shop as well. My favorite part of this blogging journey...I now have a network of supportive teachers and friends from all around the country (and even different parts of the world). I have learned so much from other teachers who generously share their ideas and resources.

Thank you for reading my blog!  Today is for sure my lucky day.
