Blog Hop

One of my all time favorite teachers (as in, knew about her before I knew anything of all this blogging and TpT stuff) Christina Bainbridge joined a blog hop and I figured... hey I am a newbie to this (at least the teaching part of this) so why not link up right? And I can definitely find some new blogs to read from this... as if I need anything else to help me procrastinate right?! Anyways...

1. What state are you in?

2. What is your current teaching position?
          I teach 3rd grade all subjects. I have been in 3rd my entire time in TN (minus the first 20 days where I taught 2nd grade. I was switched to 3rd after the first attendance period when people were surplussed... that was all new and foreign to me so I was just grateful to have kept my job).

3. What is your teaching experience?
          Half a year subbing in 2 districts grades k-8. A year teaching 6-8 grade science, 8th math, and 7th religion in a Catholic school, and this is my 5th year in 3rd grade.

4. When did you start blogging?
          This blog was just started a week or so ago. I have a personal blog that I have had almost 2 years.

5. Share some blogging tips or a resource.
          I don't really have any tips but one thing I will say is that you should never get too big for yourself. It doesn't matter if you have 5 followers or 500 followers (or more). Try to take the time to respond to people that are interacting with your blog. Those people are the reason your blog got the size it did. It kills me when bloggers (mostly personal, I must say teaching bloggers are much more friendly and interactive) get too big for themselves and forget that at one time their blog was just a little page on the internet too.

We are heading out to date night but I can not wait to check out all these links!!
