Getting the Call

I got the call on Monday, June 20th, 2011, at approximately 11 am. Not that I paid any attention to the details...

The principal's exact words were, "You're it. You're who we want."

And just like that I became a 1st Grade Teacher.

Now my days are full of finding fun lessons, apprehension, original classroom management ideas, worrying, stalking teacher blogs, uncertainty, and being encouraged by all the people who have supported me all along. 

Of all of those things, stalking teacher blogs is my favorite. I'm learning so many fun things from so many creative teachers.

This blog will be dedicated to sharing everything that I learn throughout my first year as a teacher. I'm hoping that it will encourage/teach other first year teachers. Mostly, I'm hoping it entertains at least one person. :)


  1. Congratulations Stef! I am so excited for you.

  2. So happy for you Stefanie! Estella's words to me were: "You still want a job?" and I sat there like..."what?" and then she said she wants me on the team and I'm in!
