Why I Started Blogging

I started blogging last September so I am still relatively new to the blogging world.  I started blogging as a way to share what was happening in my classroom and our elementary with our parents.  {That's the reason behind my name choice too.  I wanted to share with everyone the fun and the learning that was happening in BBA, the name of our school.}

However, I quickly realized that I loved the creative outlet that it provided, and the blog slowly morphed into more than just showing off student's work.  Now I still share student work, but I also like to write about teaching too.

 Once I started blogging, creating products on TpT quickly followed.  I had been buying products on there for a while, and I had a flash of inspiration where I thought, "I could make products like these for myself." And if I'm making them for my own classroom, I might as well post them online as well.


I honestly wasn't expecting anyone to buy what I created.  Which means that I am still excited and surprised every time I get an email saying that I sold a product!

This is a forever freebie in my store for you to try out in your classroom!

I still struggle with the idea that any other teacher's would want to read what I have to say about teaching.  But I enjoy blogging and creating for myself no matter what.  Plus, I have met some amazing teachers who are passionate about their teaching.  Whether it is through seeing their pictures on Instagram or reading their blog posts, I am inspired by the teachers that I have met in this fun journey.
I would love to get to know you better too.  Feel free to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or TpT by clicking on the links on the top right!
