This smile on my face is because of this IG community and my teacher friends! 😁 I’ve been teaching for 18 years, and I love teaching my kids so much, but sometimes you get lost or in a rut. This IG community has brought my passion back and reminds me why I chose to do what I do! ❤️
I’m so thankful for my coworker @luvkindergarten who has great ideas and so loving with her kids. I’m thankful for @misruby41 for listening to me and keeping me positive! I have had so many teachers who have inspired me to be the best I can be for my kids!
I love the friends that I’ve made on IG- @kindergartencafe and @kinderkhronicles you have such big hearts and put your students 1st! 💗 I love the new friends I have made and continue to make in my IG community! 💗💗 Thank you for inspiring me every day!

Day One: Being a Teacher 🍎
Since 2014, I have been working as a middle school special education teacher in MA. People always ask me “why did you choose middle school?? Those were the WORST years of my life!” Sure, middle school is awkward, incredibly challenging, and the kids are going through various physical and emotional challenges. Middle school was an incredibly challenging time for me, as it was the first time in my life I began to question my appearance, social status, and likeability with my peers. It is this reason precisely why I ADORE middle school kids! -
Their quirks make them special, their constantly changing (which keeps me on my toes), and they are seriously the most likable human beings on this planet. Like most jobs, I get stressed and I sometimes dread the 6:00 am alarm. Yet, when I walk into my classroom and see these amazing little people who depend on me for guidance and love, my heart literally jumps out of my chest. I’m exhausted and overwhelmed most days, but I would never trade this life with my students for ANYTHING! They have taught me more in 4 years than I could have ever asked to learn in my 26 years of life, and that is priceless. - (these were drawn for me by my kiddos this year. See why I’m so grateful?)
Holiday Special! - Did you start the year thinking you'd be happier and healthier by the end? Are you wishing you would have started sooner? Are you already thinking you'll just get started in January? Don't wait any longer, you still have time to reach your goals! Give yourself the gift of HEALTH yet this year!

We just finished up our narrative writing unit and I’m working on report cards, so I’ve been going through my kiddos writing folders. This was the first year I had my kids co-create an alphabet chart and let me tell you, it’s something that I will do at the beginning of every year now! They refer to it so much, and they are so proud of it! After multiple requests from them, I even made copies that they could have at home too for when they do writing there 💙. For more info on the tools that are in my students writing folders and how we co-constructed this chart click the resource link in my profile. #studentcreated#studentmade#writersworkshop#writingcenter#writingtools
TIP - if you’re short on wall space, print your display posters 2 to a page! You get a gorgeous display that’s a bit more compact 👌🏼 Who’s loving the rainbow? 🌈
These alphabet posters are available in all Australian State Fonts, Primary Print or Sassoon and can be purchased on their own or in my awesome Australian Ultimate Display Bundles!
