This is the first blog I've ever had! I became inspired by all the teachers out there sharing their stories and supporting each other. I titled by blog First Grade Found Me because it's always seemed like it found me rather than the other way around. I wanted my first job to be in the upper grades. I knew I couldn't teach little kids, especially not Kindergarten where kids don't even know how to hold scissors or write their names. But my first job was a 1st/2nd combo and I liked it. My next job, in the district I'm currently in, was Kindergarten. I decided I'd like whatever grade I got and sure enough... I did. I moved to first grade after 3 years and it's found me. I'd eventually like to try my hand at 5th grade, but the "cute" projects and "fun" stuff I get to do with little ones is what I love. I'm excited to get blogging!
