Blog Hop

Two linkys in one day?!?!....clearly I don't want to be cleaning my house. 

I'll admit, I'm still getting used to this whole blogging thing.
But I am LOVING it already!
Every time I get a new follower, I feel like a little kid on Christmas morning!

I saw this post on Christa's blog over at the Sweet Life of Second Grade (she gets through second grade "one diet coke at a time". Hello? What's not to love about that girl!)

I love hearing from other newbies like me so I just had to participate. 


Here's how it works:

1. Answer some questions - see below
2. Head over to Janis' blog to link up.
3. Check out other newbies' super great blogs!
4. Tell your friends!

What state are you in? I live in a small town in North Carolina.
Your current teaching position. First Grade!!
Your teaching experience. This is my second year teaching. I taught Third Grade last year. 
When you started blogging. I started blogging in April.
Share a blogging tip/blogging resource. (It's a cliche, so get ready.) Just be yourself. Ultimately this is your blog and your space. Obviously it's going to evolve over time, as you evolve and meet other bloggers, but don't lose sight of the fact that it's still yours.

Hugs, 

Marianna

  1. Thanks for joining the blog hop! First grade is fun!! I MISS seeing the excitement on their faces when they realize they are reading!!!! But I don't miss all the shoe-tying! lol January was always my favorite month--they are actual first graders! Even kinda independent!

    Hope you have a great year!

  21. So glad to meet you . . . your blog background is fabulous. I am so jealous that you live in the "Carolinas." Have you heard of the meet-up Hope King is hosting in your neck of the woods??? If you can swing it, you should think about going. I just got back from the Vegas meet up and it was an absolute blast :)

  22. Hi Mariana,
    I stopped by actually to say, "You make a beautiful bride."
    I am a new blogger as of yesterday. I have spent my summer stalking blogs and decided to take the plunge. Hoping you will stop on by and take a look. I will be hopping back your way to get ideas from you as well. Even though my students are in 6th-8th grade some happen to be on a 1st-2nd grade reading level.
    Looking forward to blogging with you.
    BTW I have a brother who lives in South Carolina. What a beautiful part of our country.
