A Budding Blog:)

I am linking up with I {heart} Recess for a Budding Blog Linky for anyone less than 200 followers!

1. Why did you start blogging?
When I discovered teacher websites I was hooked!  Slowly my website love morphed into blog love.  I love the ability to see what teachers in Hawaii, Canada, and Australia are doing in their classrooms!  How great is that!!  I love reading what teachers are doing in their classrooms, hearing about their frustrations and loves.  Blogs inspire me and keep me going:)  I entered the blogging world tentatively (It is scary putting yourself out there) but I am getting braver day by day. 

2. What is your favorite subject to teach and why?

I love to teach READING!  It is my passion and being in intervention specialist allows me to to see a child progress from a non reader to a fluent reader.  Man! Does that put a smile on my face:)

3. Describe your teaching style.

I am a hands on teacher.  I believe in using multisensory techniques to teach when at all possible.  I believe in routine but I also feel that it is important to adjust your teaching to meet the needs of your students.  I am a student centered teacher:)

4. Give three interesting facts about you.

Three interesting facts about me..........hmmmm.........My kids are ten years apart so I am experiencing the terrible twos and the terrible teens simultaneously.  I was an exchange student in high school and spent a yearish abroad in Guayaquil, Ecuador.    Finally I am a total HGTV addict.  Really I watch so much Property Brothers, House Hunters, and Love it or List it that I could become a cast member of the show:)

5. Do you have a TpT store? If yes, post the link :)

Yes I do have a TPT store.  It is called the Phonics Phenomenon.  I hope with some down time this summer I can get some more creations completed and posted.  Feel free to check it out!


  1. Welcome to the blog world! I am a new blogger as well and I live in Ohio! I am planning to make some new creations this summer as well. I am your newest follower.:)

    The Teaching Twosome

  2. Very excited to read your bio. I went through a Wilson workshop back in the fall and I am spending time this summer figuring out how it can work in my first grade class.
    Ditto on HGTV. I know you are not supposed to have the tv on when you are going to sleep. But House Hunters is on just about every night when I crawl into bed.

    Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
