Hi, thank you so much for being here! I'm Nicole, a wife, mother of two and a 1st grade teacher in Hawaii. I have taught every grade from preschool to 3rd grade, along with Title I Reading! I grew up, went to college, and taught for seven years in Oregon. My family now lives in Hawaii and we love it here! I have a Master's degree and endorsements in early childhood, elementary, reading, and am finishing up an endorsement in ESOL this fall. I love the collaborative nature of blogging and look forward to swapping ideas with you!
