I gain inspiration from so many places in my life.
I work with many wonderful people who have ideas on how to make lessons more exciting for children. On Twitter, I have a PLN that is constantly providing me with new ideas that I can immediately bring into the classroom. Cookbooks inspire me to try unique recipes in the kitchen, and Pinterest inspires me when I'm itching to create something new.
Reflection is important for a clear mind. Many of my cooking, crafting, and teaching ideas start as a spark of inspiration that I gained from someone else. I just spin those ideas to work for me. Hopefully, this blog will inspire someone else.
I also wanted to utilize this website as a place to reflect and share teaching resources and ideas that have worked for me in my classroom. I have a gamified, flexible seating classroom and I LOVE telling others about it. My teaching partner and I have created many resources that have helped us bring gaming into the classroom. I am excited to share it all with you. I also am planning on teaching my fifth graders about Growth Mindset. Hopefully, you will also teach yourself to think positively and grow in a skill this year!
The link below is for my personal twitter - it is being revamped.. I haven't spent much time on it lately. To view my teacher Twitter check out @mrsdastice :)
I am so excited to embark on this blog journey. Stay inspired my friends!
