Happy to be Here!

Hi Friends!
Denise here from Sunny Days in Second Grade. I am so crazy excited to finally be able to say I'm a TBA author! I've been blogging since since April of this year and yes, it's quickly become an addiction for sure. Being a part of this amazing network of educators is quite an honor and one I'm so very thankful for!

In the get-to-know-you spirit, here are a few things about me:

1. I've been teaching since 1994. I started out teaching fifth grade drop-out prevention students. I've taught every grade from 2-5, I was a writing specialist for K-5, a drop-out prevention coach and now I teach second grade gifted students. I love that I've had the opportunity to experience so many different aspects of teaching.

2. On the day of my student teaching orientation, I immediately spotted the cutest guy sitting among the cooperating teachers. I knew there was something special about him. I was right! We've been married for almost 13 years.

3. We don't have children of our own, but a two teacher household certainly can't help but be child-centered. We are constantly talking about our students and helping each other with ideas for them. My hubs is also my personal Mac Genius. I highly recommend marrying your tech guy ;0)

4. Teaching is not just my job. It's my hobby, my passion, and most certainly the thing I was put here on Earth to do. It's been a little difficult to be the most positive teacher in recent years with legislative changes, budget cuts and increasing demands for teachers to do more and more with less and less. It's for that reason that I started my blog. I am determined to stay focused on the good things about teaching and I want to do whatever I can to help other teachers find or rediscover the joy of teaching that brought us to this amazing profession in the first place.
