Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop

I'm participating in my first Linky Party! Janis at Grade Three is the Place for Me is hosting a "Newbie Blogger" Blog Hop, so I felt it appropriate to link up.
Here are the rules:
 Answer the following questions: 

1.  what state you are in
    2.  your current teaching position
    3.  your teaching experience
    4.  when you started blogging
    5.  share a blogging tip / blogging resource

    1.  I live in the beautiful state of South Carolina.
    2.  I teach first grade, and I love it! Watching my students grow (in every way) throughout the year is so fulfilling.
    3.  I have been teaching for five years. I spent one year in fourth grade and four years in first.
    4.  I started blogging last Tuesday...  Yes, less than a week ago. So I think I fit into the theme of this blog hop very well.
    5.  My "newbie" status leaves me high and dry on "blogging tips," but I have found a million blogs I love to visit. How did I find them? Pintrest, of course. My go-to favorite blog is Clutter-free Classroom. She's straightforward with her writing, takes pictures (I'm visual), and posts EVERY day! I aspire for my classroom to be as organized and welcoming as hers. 

Okay! Now let's see if I can link this post up! (Newbie's last words)


  1. I love your dog's story. He is so lucky to have you. I bet the kiddos really enjoy is posters and how well he behaves in school;)I bookmarked your blog so I could follow you.

    I'd love for you to buzz by sometime=)

    1. Thanks so much Heather! I did buzz over to your blog. Can you direct me to a site that explains how to add the "stuff" to the sides - specifically the Google Friend Follower thingy? I'd love to get my newbie blog looking like yours!

    2. Hi! I'm an official follower now!! Sorry I didn't see your reply until now. Ladybug's Teacher Files has great tutorials and so does The Cutest Blog on the Block. I actually looked at their blog today and changed a lot of things on my blog. They were really easy and I love the new look. If you have any questions I would be happy to help if I can.

    Keep Calm & Imagine

  3. Oh my, love your little pooch (and your adorable costumes) I have a black lab that I love to pieces. Just found your blog through the hop and am your newest follower. I'd love it if you stopped by.:)
