My...400th...Blog...Post... !

Can you believe it? Can *I* believe it?


~ My first blog post was posted on September 9, 2006 and yes, it was a rant...

~ This August, I knew I'd landed at a good school when I read my newest teacher handbook and "Little Eyes Upon You" had been included...

~ During my year off from teaching, I missed out on sporting my teacher fashion...

~ I've introduced you to some friends of mine, and tried to learn more about effective photography...

~ I've explained why I pretty much ignore parents during Kindergarten Round Up (I'm busy noticing other things!)

~...and although posts that include photos of my classroom decor are pretty popular, it was my rant about popsicle sticks that garnered the most comments and attention...

~ Parents always appreciate those little inside tips, especially about the kindergarten *lunch* experience...

~... and of course, I've been craftsy. Here's the link to my paper banner tutorial. Leave a comment on THIS post to be entered in a drawing for that very banner, but if you link back to the tutorial itself on your blog site, your name will be entered again (let me know you've linked to me)! I'll draw the random winner on Sunday, November 9!

Thank you for reading, and thank you for sharing. Thank you for caring about young children, education, and for welcoming me onto your computer screen.

    Yay! Congratulations on your 400th post. I am in sincere admiration of your ability to juggle teaching and "real life" - including gorgeous crafts!! I am a K-4 librarian.
