School Year Success Linky Party

 Ladybug Teacher Files is having a school year success linky party. This is your chance to brag and then steal ideas from fellow bloggers!

This has been an incredible year for me! I switched grade levels from fourth to first and found myself on the most wonderful team. It's been exciting and inspiring to work with a group of ladies who are as passionate about teaching as I am. They also happen to be loud, sarcastic, and hilarious! That being said, my personal success is finding my love of teaching again! Last year was so HORRIFIC that I can't put it into words. There wasn't a day that I didn't cry on my way home from work and then sit on the couch wondering what else I might be qualified to do. After the first week of school I knew this year would bring me back to life! First grade is where I'm meant to be! And the icing on the cake was that I discovered blogging- my new addiction! I have been so inspired by everyone's thoughts and ideas that I can't stop thinking of games and things I want to incorporate. You all have made me a better teacher and I feel like all you bloggy friends are part of my team. Thanks all! XO

Now YOU go join this AWESOME linky party! You just know it will make you feel good to read all those stories!


  1. ok, I feel kind of silly, I wrote on the wrong post...though I loved the game!! Sorry! Anyhow, I loved reading about your happy grade level switch :) It's so important to be in a grade where we are happy, isn't it? I've had years where I have had doubts too and it's so nice to get back to the place you knew you were meant to be as a teacher. I hope you have many happy years in 1st. Thanks so much for linking up Jennifer!


  2. No, I'm link stupid today. It was all me. It kept linking to my fraction game! Thanks Kristen! LOVE this linky party idea!
