I have been married for nearly 18 years and am "Mom" to two wonderful boys (one who is severely autistic and the other who is extremely hilarious), a baseball fan--especially if my son is playing, an avid photographer and scrapbooker and now have entered the wonderful world of blogging--and I truly believe I have found my calling. I am shocked and humbled by how fast my little blog has grown, and I hope you make your way over to check it out! Whether you are looking for inspiration, teaching tips, or in-the-trenches teaching information, the Fourth Grade Studio has a little bit of all of it--and hopefully my addiction to taking photos will help make it all easier to imagine! I'm a visual learner, so I like to "show" as well as "tell"!
In the last few months I have started my Teachers Pay Teachers store and have been pleased with how well my materials have been received! If you are looking for reader's workshop, writer's workshop, or high quality math activities all aligned to the Common Core--stop over and check them out! I am a firm believer in using assessments to guide my instruction and hope I can help you out with that as well!
You can find me on Facebook and Pinterest, and I hope you join in the fun! I have included all my links below and would love it if you would join me...ask questions, make comments--I want my blog to be a place for great educational dialogue and the sharing of ideas. We are in challenging times--and with the power of technology and collaboration, we can help each other through it! This blog is a perfect example!
To thank you for stopping by, I'd love to hook you up with a few freebies from my TpT store. I hope you enjoy them--and welcome to All Things Upper Elementary!
