Well here goes! I am starting my first blog. After all my blog stalking you would think I would know what to say. Yet, I am already beginning to ramble.
Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Amy and I grew up in Oviedo, Florida and I went to the University of Florida (Go Gators!). I married a goofy, but completely dedicated US Marine. Jeremy and I have 3 boys who couldn't be more different. Greg is my oldest and excels at sports and video games, but would pass on school if he could. Andrew loves school and never stops asking questions. He is genuinely curious about everything and cannot get enough learning done in a day. Matthew is autistic but the absolute heart of our family. He makes us laugh everyday and he teaches us all how amazing our life really is.
As a military family we have lived in North Carolina, Southern California and currently we live in Okinawa, Japan. We love this little island! The people are sweet, the views are gorgeous and the experience is one we will always fondly remember. BUT, alas, we do miss home. I keep thinking that if there was only a Hobby Lobby or Target, I could surely make something cute to share. I guess my Monday Made-its are going to be super crafty (like q-tips, duct tape and paper clips kind of crafty).
Why am I starting a blog? Well, I love collaboration, I love talking, and I really need an outlet for my ideas. This year I have been blessed with an amazing team and I know big things are on the horizon for me. I want to make sure I document these ideas and maybe get feedback from other teachers who have been there, done that.
I am super excited to be a part of this community of teachers and bloggers. If anyone gets over to my blog, please leave me a comment or drop me a line.
PS- I may need some serious help on making this blog bling. Let me know if you can help!!!
