New Blogger Here!

I saw this hilarious-but-oh-so-true e-card on Pinterest and immediately showed it to my husband.  He saw it, shook his head up and down VERY agreeably, and said "Yep, so true!"  Now, I know what you're thinking - "Your poor tired husband has to be so glad the school-year is coming to an end!"  But guess what?  He's not the teacher - I am!  And if there's anybody more excited than me that summer is coming, it's most definitely him.  After just a couple of months of marriage, the 2013-2014 school year started and he took over all of the cooking, cleaning, and laundry.  I am one very lucky teacher wife!

I should introduce myself.  My name is Susan Dow and I'm wrapping up my third year in teaching, my first year of teaching 1st grade, and I'm quickly approaching my first year wedding anniversary to my super sweet and supportive husband, Adam. 

I've taught 4th grade bilingual, 3rd grade, and now I'm finishing up my first year in 1st grade.  I can now say that I know what my passion grade is - FIRST GRADE!  My kiddos are so sweet, loving, and so eager to soak everything up.  I absolutely love this age.  I have completely loved this year of teaching and my only regret is that I didn't document it.  Cue my new blog!  

This summer, I hope to get in the habit of writing so that when the school year starts again in the Fall, documenting my experiences with my sweet firsties will be somewhat natural!  I'm excited about my entry into the blogging world and you should be too!  Good things are sure to come!
