I'm so excited to finally join the blogging world! I've been a blog stalker for a while now..so I'm ready to jump feet first into this experience :)
I decided to start this blog not only to share ideas that I use in my 3rd grade classroom, but to gain insight from so many of the AMAZING bloggers out there!
I'll start off by telling you a little bit about myself, then we'll get to the fun stuff.
My name is Lacey, and I am a third grade teacher, wife, sister, daughter, best friend, shopaholic, and Instagram addict (I swear - I get so many ideas on IG!). I was born and raised in the Peach State! :)
I spent the last 5 years teaching in the same school, and this year, I will be moving to another school in my district. I am thrilled to join a new team of teachers, and can't wait for the school year to begin!
I am very lucky, because the district I work in is on a 160 day calendar instead of 180 days..this means that we don't start school until after Labor Day (September 3 this year), and we still get out at the end of May. We do have extended hours, with school being from 7:15 - 3:00, but it's worth it to me to have an extra month off in the summer! :)
I have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education, and am currently pursuing my Specialist Degree in Teacher Leadership. I'll be finished in December - I'm so ready to graduate! After that, no more degrees for me!
My husband and I don't have any children yet, but we do have a furbaby! Gracie is a chocolate lab/Weimaraner mix, and she is definitely our baby!
Our Gracie Girl
We also have 2 nieces, Macy (7) and Isabella (2), who we love to spoil rotten! They are my sister's girls, and they have my heart for sure!
Ok, now that you know a little bit about me, we'll get to the fun part of this post - the GIVEAWAY!!!
