Newbie Blog Hop

I love learning about new bloggers like myself, so I decide to join in on Grade Three is the Place for Me's Newbie Blog Hop.  



Please visit her blog if you want to join in or check out the other cool, new blogs! 


Here are the guidelines:
1.  what state you are in

    2.  your current teaching position
    3.  your teaching experience
    4.  when you started blogging
    5.  share a blogging tip / blogging resource



So, here are my answers:
1.  I am in Illinois, but not Chicago- there actually is more to our state. ;)
2.  I am currently a first grade teacher.
3. I taught one year of kindergarten in my hometown, then moved to a new town and have taught first grade for the past 4 years.  
4. I really got started in February of this year.  
5.  If I need to learn how to do something, I usually just Google it.  Someone else has had the same problem and has a solution.  And if that doesn't work, just ask someone! 


Now I'm off to check out all the other blogs that linked up.  BTW, I know I posted twice today, but really I didn't because my last post was actually posted last night and then disappeared.  So, I rewrote it and posted it just now.  You followed that just fine, right? LOL
