I'm Back and my precious reason for being gone is...

I have been absent from the blogging world for 10 months now. I have still been looking at everyone else's blogs and have been inspired by your posts and resources, but I couldn't find the time or energy to work on my own TpT products or blog.

My very special reason for having no time or energy is....

I had a precious baby boy at the beginning of April. Last August I found out I was pregnant and physically it took a toll on my body. Between trying to prepare for my first year in 1st grade and "baking" a baby, I was exhausted! Not to mention I had a very difficult class this year. I had a mix of personalities and it was very exhausting trying to keep up with them.

But guess what!!! I am feeling back to my normal self and I am feeling more inspired than ever to do even a better job next school year. Yeah, I know you all have a couple of more weeks to finish off the 2012-2013 school year, but I have been on maternity leave for 5 weeks now and I am ready to start preparing for next school year! (I know, I'm crazy.) But I finally have my love and drive for teaching back!

Before I left for the year, I had to create my professional goals for next school year. My goal for next year is to focus on my math instruction and I would like to incorporate guided math lessons and math centers.

I am also going to be creating more resources of my own and I will be adding them to TpT. So be on the look out. Hopefully I can accomplish all of this while taking care of my newborn one month old baby (wow time is already going so fast). Wish me luck!
