Yearn to Learn Linky Party (yes I am late to the game!)

I realize I’m about two weeks late to join this party, and that it may be long forgotten in some blogsospheres. However, I was so excited to find such a wealth of teacher bloggers at Yearn to Learn that I wanted to be a part of this! I have a list a mile long of blogs I like to read, but I am always looking for more inspiration.

1.  A blogger who is a “New Kid on the Blog”   Jack of all Trades… seriously just spent an hour perusing this blog!

2.  Post a blogger in your same grade level : The Teacher’s Lane has great printables and fabulous ideas. Plus it is so hard to find 5th grade blogs! When I find a good one I bookmark it right away!
3.  Post a blogger in a different grade level:  Fabulous Fourth Grade Froggies: I love this blog for two main reasons: My fourth grade teacher’s name was Mrs. Haupt so we had a frog themed classroom and it brings back great memories, and she is a brand new blogger who has shared so much and been very inspiring in a short amount of time!

4.  It’s all about the button. Find a cute blog button and post it.

And for the button: Teaching in High Heels! because I do, every day. If I don’t wear high heels, I am afraid that I will get asked for my hall pass. So I am very happy to find a kindred spirit in this blog!

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to collaborate, Denise!

Introducing Teaching in Pink!

If you ask my students about me, two things that will be on the list will surely be drinking coffee and wearing pink! Hopefully on the list as well is great teacher, inspiring, fun, and strict! But due to the fact that “drinks a lot of coffee” and “wears a lot of pink” are facts, where as the others are a matter of opinion, I have named my blog Teaching in Pink!

I am a full time mother of two, part time fashion designer and overtime teacher. I currently work in a small Catholic school teaching fifth grade. I love the added responsibility of modeling and teaching faith to my students. I hope this blog can help other Catholic school teachers with ideas, but also that public, charter and non Christian private schools can benefit from some of my ideas!

I look forward to documenting my school year and sharing ideas with the other wonderful teachers in the Blogosphere!
