  32. Yes, it is a jungle out there - especially in NC, huh? I'm in NC too - Vance County. I love teaching because I'm teaching at the elementary school I attended as a child - for 29 years now!! It's a great sight to see kids who love learning, and want to please themselves, their parents, their peers, their teachers, and other adults.

  38. Hi Marie-
    Thanks so much for offering this giveaway...I am definitely a blog stalker and TPT addict! One of the things I love about teaching is the "puzzle"...trying to find the right piece that fits for the right child. And the wonderful feeling that finding that piece gives me :)
