Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am a first grade teacher in Quebec, Canada. I have been teaching for 20 years, I taught Kindergarten for a while, then Grade 4 and now I am happily back in first grade where I hope to stay. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Bachelor of Education from McGill University in Montreal, Canada.  Thanks again for visiting my blog :)

  3. Love your site, it is so eye catching who wouldn't want to stay and explore. I love your connections to literature. Our district recently cut all our elementary library media teachers, thus I lost my job. My heart is still into books and getting kids excited to read and make personal connection to literature in their own lives. It was a joy to see that same desire in your blog. Following you!

  4. Hi Mrs. Wanek
    Thank you so much for the nice comment. It made me so happy to read it:) I am so sorry about your job loss, that must be tough. I hope that you can find something else soon. Connecting to literature is what I really love, I hope to post more about that in the months to come. I'd love to hear about some of your favorite connect books, when you have time. Hope to hear from you again.

  5. I was in Quebec a million years ago. A beautiful province! I live in BC. Funny,,I've been following you awhile and didn't realize you were Canadian:)

  6. Hi Leslie!
    I didn't know you were Canadian either! I am from BC. I love your blog!
    I have a 17 year old daughter. We have a lot in common. I was in Quebec in 2006 I believe - it is beautiful! Your friend does fabulous clip and I am happy to follow her. I can't wait to see what else she comes up with!
