Welcome to my teaching blog: Bright Eyed Classroom!
I'm very excited to share and learn from other amazing educators from around the world through blogging. I am starting my 4th year of teaching in less than two weeks in the beautiful Mission neighborhood of San Francisco. I moved to San Francisco last year and taught as a K-5 Resource Specialist for a year before deciding to make the switch to a full time 2nd grade classroom. Prior to moving to California, I taught for two year in the South Side of Chicago as an elementary Special Education teacher. This was an amazing experience that helped me jump into "real life" teaching with extremely high expectations, difficult situations, and wonderful administration and staff to help me along the way. I want this blog to be honest, resourceful, and simply chronicle the ups and downs of urban education. I love the education field and can't see myself doing anything else. I also have a thirst for health, fitness, nonfiction reading, documentaries, and wasting my day away watching The Office on Netflix. Since I am very new to blogging and sharing in general, I expect to have a learning curve and will see how this experience goes in the next few weeks.
