Newbie Blogger Blog Hop first blog hop...I'm not quite sure if I'm doing it right, but here goes.

Since I am a brand-new blogger, I thought this would be a perfect first blog hop!  I'm linking up with Kelly from First Grade Fairytales.  She's my latest follower and left such kind words!  Thanks Kelly!

For this blog hop, this is what is being shared:
1.  what state you are in
2.  your current teaching position
3.  your teaching experience
4.  when you started blogging
So, here goes...
I live in Georgia and I currently teach second grade.  I began my teaching career in 2nd and stayed in 2nd for 11 years.  I then taught 1st for 10 years and finally got to move back to 2nd this past year after looping up with my first graders.  I hope to finish my career in 2nd!  I absolutely LOVE it!!  I am truly a newbie blogger!  I began blogging just this month (July '12) after finishing my masters degree in mathematics education.  

Till next time...
