Hi! My name is Kate and I have been teaching for 8 years now. I spent my first year in 5th grade, my next two years in 4th grade, then I left teaching completely to try it in the business sector. I missed teaching tremendously and went back after a year. I was lucky to find a position at the same school I had left. I was hired as a K-5 Math Specialist. The specialist position was nice, but my heart was in the classroom and after two years I moved into a 3rd grade position. This year will be my third year in 3rd grade and I absolutely love this age. I am so grateful to have my dream job! I am also extremely excited to join the blogging world and share all my ideas and creations!
