all about me...

My Favorite Class!
I have finally updated my "about me" tab!
 Hello There! My name is Lindsey. I am a first year, first grade teacher in Utah... soon to be a second year, second grade teacher. (Yes you read that right... If all goes according to plan then I am looping with my firsties to second!  I couldn't be more excited, because I have a great group of kids!) I am a newlywed and I love being married to my hunky husband, Dave. I have started this blog to share my adventures as I experience new opportunities through teaching and marriage. ♥

 Like I have mentioned before, I am a first grade teacher.
Those who know me well know that I mention that a lot.

I am so proud of it. I love calling myself a "first grade teacher".

Even though my job can be stressful, I love it!

My First Grade Teacher & I

I have a terrific group of kids. 
It is amazing how much I truly love each and every one of them. 
I love seeing them progress and learn new things. 
It seriously makes me giddy! 

I am so excited to go to second grade with them, 
because I don't think my heart could handle letting them go! 

My Niece & I

I am teaching first grade at the same elementary school I attended as a little girl... in fact, I am teaching across the hall from my first grade teacher (she is still in first grade--it is so fun to work with her)!

I also love having my niece in my class! 
It is so special and she is the perfect student!

My husband and I were married in June 2009. It's been almost 2 years, but I think we are still newlyweds! We met 4 years ago while he was golfing and I was working...
the rest is history.

We don't have any kids (yet)... I have 22 first graders to keep me busy instead!

I hope you enjoy this blog as I reflect on my life as a teacher!

Thanks for reading!

Linking up with:


  1. I love learning more about you and I love that you blog!


  2. You will LOVE looping! I think that is one of my favorite parts about teaching.

  3. Looping is truly a magical experience. You will truly love seeing the growth.

    I have lots of resources and links to wonderful sites featuring HM resources available in my pages along the top of my blog that you may like to reference. I found that many of your creations worked wonderfully and often still aligned with the same week for me in 2nd grade for phonics and skills.

  4. Congrats on getting to loop with your students. There is nothing like your first class! You will never forget them :)


  5. I taught my first 2 years of first grade next to my first grade teacher too! :)

  6. I love your blog! I read it regularly. I happened to marry my first grade teacher's nephew. I had moved away from my elem. area long long ago. I went with my now hunky hubby:)to my fist holiday get together and as he introduced me to his family I noticed his aunt looked familiar. I said so and she all loud and quircky said - From Playboy 78!! A little embarrassed I said - No, you look a lot like my first grade teacher. Seventeen years later (we dated a long time)the rest is history!
    You never forget your first grade teacher!
