First Grade Last!

Yes, you read that correctly! I am officially a first grade teacher! I don't think it's officially set in yet. I'm teaching my favorite grade at an AMAZING school. Seriously, I'm so blessed. I'm trying not to go too crazy in buying things for my classroom until I actually see my classroom. The teacher I'm replacing is moving up to 5th grade so I imagine that she left some books behind that would be too "little" for her 5th graders. I am eagerly awaiting the TpT back to school sale...I've already put a million 1st grade related things in my cart! I'm going shopping this weekend to pick up a few things and I will post pictures after I do so! Thanks to everyone that nominated me for the Liebster Award! Is it too late to answer the questions and nominate people? I'm a terrible blogger...but I was too worried if I started blogging I'd spill the beans about my job before it was "official!" Thanks again for nominating me and HELLO! to all my new followers! More to come! :)


  1. Congratulations Natalie! Isn't it such a nice feeling to finally be "official"? I just went through the first-year-teacher-looking-for-a-first-job process, and it can be pretty stressful. I know you are so excited to get into your room and and start preparing for your "firsties".
    P.S. It's nice to find another Arkansas blogger!

  3. Congratulations Natalie!!! I'm so happy for you!! I know exactly what you've been going through and I can finally spill the beans that I found a job too!! After many interviews and lots of discouragement, I finally landed a job as a CD (k4) teacher at a school I fell in love with while subbing! I haven't blogged about it yet, I'm waiting till tomorrow when I can post pictures of my classroom. I know this is the best feeling in the world to finally have a job! The search is finally over!! Enjoy getting ready for your first graders and I can't wait to read about your journey!!
