I love these blog hops for new bloggers, it gives us a chance to get our blog out there to share!
Janis at Grade 3 is the Place for me is hosting a new blogger blog hop. So we have to share some information about ourselves
1. what state you are in
I am in New South Wales, Australia or Down Under as most people seem to know us. It is Winter and really cold....
2. your current teaching position
I teach Grade 2/3 this year in a small rural school. I have a great class this year
3. your teaching experience
I have been teaching for 13 years in the lower grade Kindergarten to Year 3. Out of those 13 years I have only taught a straight grade twice, every other year I have taught a multi age or composite class. One year I had Pre-school, 1, 2 and 3 in the same class. I have also taught ESL for a short period of time. The best part of my teaching career has been that I have taught in 3 different states and I am constantly amazed at how different school systems can be in the same country!! Crazy.
4. when you started blogging
I started blogging in June 2012, I'm so new to this I am still shiny!
5. share a blogging tip / blogging resource
One of the best things I did to get my name out there was to leave positive comments on other posts and always leave a link to your blog.
I love the way I have been able to share in what other teachers are doing around the world and I am overwhelmed at the generosity of teachers as a profession. I love making those connections, you know those moments when you go "Ohhh, that is such a cool idea" I am going to
steal use that idea in my room/with my kids.
What it really comes down to though is I am a people person and to be able to communicate with other teachers from around the world is awesome!
So if you are a new blogger link up and join the hop!
