Hi Again!

It’s about time that this little blog was up and running again!  I started writing this blog 6 years ago and let’s just say I’ve been inconsistent at blogging about keeping the sparkle in first grade.  Starting today, you will be able to find new content here on Shining and Sparkling in First Grade on a much more regular basis.

Remember Me?

This will be my 18th (gasp) year of teaching!  I taught special education for 8 years and am entering my tenth year of teaching first grade.  I love to add *SPARKLE* and *GLITTER* to EVERYTHING!!!!  I also love to be creative and I can’t wait to share some of my best ideas here with you on my blog. 

At home, I’m a very busy mommy and wife, which is why I’ve taken an unplanned hiatus from blogging for the last couple of years.  I have a son who is 7 and about to start second grade and a daughter who is 4 going on 14.  These two mean everything to me.  My husband and I have been married for 11 years and he is one of those rare guys who is truly a partner and we share all the responsibilities.  We also have a little dog that we love very much. 

Upcoming Fun!
I'm sure by now you've heard that there's a big sale over at Teachers Pay Teachers!  Take a minute to check out my store.  And keep following my blog!  In a few days, there will be a special announcement regarding daily giveaways of my hottest items.  You don't want to miss out!
