About Me

Dear Friends,

I am so excited to welcome you to my blog!  I began blogging in December of 2011 and everyday brings me new opportunities and friendships.  I can not even begin to tell you how much blogging and sharing what I know about special education has meant to me.  I have met so many other wonderful special education bloggers, shared my knowledge with people around the planet, and been blessed with incredible opportunities I never would have dreamed if it had not been for this little ol' blog! 

I plan to continue sharing strategies from my own resource classroom or what I've learned through co-teaching with my awesome colleagues!  Some days it may be a simple tip, a fun moment that I experienced throughout my day, a way to tame the special ed. paperwork, a product I've made for my classroom that I want to share with you, an app, or something amazing I've learned from a blogging buddy (credit given to them of course).  I hope you are always able to find something inspiring or enjoyable on my blog!

Other Random things you don't know about me...
