Good evening, blog buddies!

Grade Three is the Place For Me is having a linky party! This is perfect for me!
1. What state you are in
2. Your current teaching position
3. Your teaching experience
4. When you started blogging
5. share a blogging tip/blogging resource

Here goes...

1. I am in Illinois. I teach and reside in the suburbs about 35 minutes from Chicago!
2. I currently teach first grade. I love it! :)
3. I student taught kindergarten for a semester. I was an aide in a first grade and fifth grade classroom for 6 months. I have been teaching first grade for 3 years!
4. I started REALLY blogging in June. It has truly been a blessing! :)
5. The best advice I can give is to comment on other blogs. It is a great way to meet other inspirational people. :)
What a fun linky party!

I have some good news...and some bad news.

Here is the good news: I purchased the Scrappin doodles license for  clip art. I am officially obsessed with clip art. Scrappin doodles has the CUTEST clip art. There are so many choices, I wish I could buy them all! This license means I can post freebies! Yay!

Here's the bad news: the license is going to be emailed to me within the next 48 hours. I don't have it. So unfortunately, I can't post my first freebie like I promised yesterday, just yet. :(

But my first freebie is complete! It goes with the WBT classroom rules that I will blog about soon!

I would like to give a quick shout out to my newest follower...
He's so sweet, I think he might be a keeper! :)
