Today is my first blogiversary! One year ago today, I posted my first Monday Made It post. I was super excited, because I had been stalking Tara @ 4th Grade Frolics all summer. Little did I know the journey that I was beginning or the people that I would meet, both virtually and in real life. This last year was very special to me, because it was my 20th year in education, and my last in 4th grade. Thank you for letting me share it with you. I can't wait to see what next year has in store for me as I begin my journey in 2nd grade.
To celebrate my blogiversary, I am giving away a "Teacher's Favorites" package. The winner will receive select products from more amazing bloggers, Classroom Friendly Quiet Pencil Sharpener, and a mystery box of some of my favorite Back-to-School supplies.
Twenty years ago, I made a HUGE personal move that completely changed my life. July 23, 1993, I packed up everything and came to Texas. I had recently graduated from college and accepted a job in Houston. I knew no one in Texas, but I REALLY wanted to teach. In some ways, it was an easy move, because my brother left home that summer, too. He moved to Florida with his new wife and finished out his time in the Navy. Earlier that year, my mom moved back to her hometown of Wichita to be closer to her mother. Three years later, I met and married a Texan. My brother eventually moved back to our hometown, and my mom retired to Arkansas, but I've never considered leaving my new home state, Texas.
To celebrate my love of Texas, I am giving away a "With Love, From Texas, Y'all!" package. The winner will receive products from these Texas bloggers.
