GOOSIES

Well, this is the very first post of my very first professional blog.  I don't think I have been this excited about anything for a really long time!  I am hoping that I have enough to "doodle" about to make my blog interesting to other teachers.  Now stop that!! Where is my confidence?  Did you notice how adorably cute my blog design is?  I mean, who wouldn't want to at least pop in here for a minute, right?  (BTW...thanks to the girls at Honey Bunches Blog Designs...they are awesome).

I've been teaching for awhile and I know that the key to any successful teacher is effective collaboration with other passionate educators.  That is why I am so intrigued by professional teaching blogs.  It is an exciting time in education....there has never been more communication and sharing among teachers and that is such a wonderful and amazing thing.  Yes, it creates the possibility for all of us to land "on the same page" which can only benefit our students, but when teachers reach out to other teachers, it illustrates all of the different routes we can take to make learning accessible to all of our kiddos.

I am so inspired by the Jessica Meachams and the Beth Newinghams of the teaching world and their willingness to take a risk and share what they do so the rest of us can benefit.  I pale in comparison to those "superheros" but am hoping to give back a little bit to a profession that has given me so much over the years (yeah, yeah...it's sucked a bit out of me at times too!).  So, welcome to Third Grade Doodles!!  Let's do this....(ooooh, I just got goosies)!!
