Hello! I am Annie. In August I started my 7th year of teaching. I have taught 1st grade (4 years), Kindergarten (1 year), and 5th grade (2 years). I have enjoyed each grade I have taught. My heart has always belonged to first grade until this year when I decided to move up to 5th grade and I am loving it! I teach Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. I am married and have one amazing little boy named Gavyn. He is the light of our lives! I LOVE technology, creating classroom creations, and blogging. I have been blogging for 3 years now. Melissa, my teaching and blogging partner, and I recently started this new blog since we are now both teaching fifth grade. Previously our blog was Awesome in 1st and 5th. I hope you find many useful ideas and enjoy our blog.
