Newbie Blog Hop :)

Newbie blog hop from

1.  what state you are in: 
A state of confusion? No, really Virginia, which is interesting because I almost put "Northern VA", which if you're from/have lived in VA, you know that NVA is a whole other animal...

    2.  your current teaching position
KINDERGARTEN! Woohoo! I am going into the second year at a brand new school (well, now a year old...) I was at one of the oldest schools in the area, teaching 5th, til last year!

    3.  your teaching experience
Wow, ok... through student teaching and various advising/coaching positions, I have worked with kids from birth-> college... I have TAUGHT (including student teaching...) Pre-K K, 1 (student teaching) 2, 4, 5, 6 (student teaching)
I taught Pre-K in Pittsburgh, and 2nd in inner city Pittsburgh (where I am from,) I then moved to Northern VA, and taught in a rural school for 5 years (1 year K/4 and 4 in 5th). I am now in a more suburban school teaching K.

    4.  when you started blogging
Ehrm, well I had a livejournal in college... now I have a few blogs, one for food, one for my family, one for random thoughts and this one. How often do I update? Well, not often for the other three.

    5.  share a blogging tip / blogging resource
I really dont have one :) Reading blogs makes me want to blog!
