kindergarten centers: memory game

Do you teach Kindergarten for a full hour?
Ever wonder what you might do if you end up with some spare time?

Head on over to //The Art of Education// to read my article about a memory game that makes the perfect Kindergarten Center.

where you'll find me...

In my last blog post I stated that my heart was tugging me in another direction.
When I wrote that I wasn't even sure exactly what those words meant.
I just knew I was ready to stretch some muscles and see where the wind was going to blow me.

I was sort of expecting a slight breeze to push me in the right direction.
Instead this last month has put me through a whirlwind of change.
Not all whirlwinds are bad either.
Some are actually quite exciting.

I am excited to share that I will be writing for //The Art of Education//.
Most art teachers know about this wonderful website.
It is chalk full of great ideas and resources.

I am so excited to be a part of the team.
I'll be keeping this blog running, but for the most part it will be pointing you in the direction of the articles I am writing over there.

So stayed tuned. 
Lots of excitement to come.

i'm a mrs.

So I disappeared.
For a long time.
The truth was I just had too many things on my plate.
Between wedding planning. Work. Moving. Buying a house. 
There was way too much going on the past 6 months.
I had not forgotten about the blog, but my heart was elsewhere.
I did get married to the best man I know.
The day was dreamy.
It could not have gone more perfectly.

It was truly a happy day.

I'm not sure what my plans are for the blog yet.
I feel my heart tugging me in a different direction.
Pulling me towards another dream of mine....
