I recently moved from the domain thefirsttimeround.wordpress.com. It was a blog that sought to help out first year teachers and chronicle my first year teaching. I wasn’t keeping up with it well enough though, and decided to move my blog to a different focus: Books!!
I teach 7th grade Language Arts at a small rural school just outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. I am ever passionate about reading–I have been for a long time. Reading is what inspired me to teach. To be able to share my love of books with my students is what makes every day worth it.
I love my job, my students, and the smell of fresh book pages (or the small sound of Kindle clicks).
I also (secretly.) am really sick of owls–that is just what my classroom is themed, so I thought, “Hey, I’ll roll with it!”
