Rachel {the tattooed teacher}

Hey y'all! It's Rachel aka the tattooed teacher. I am ecstatic about blogging with these ah-maz-ing ladies I consider friends! There is nothing that compares to support from awesome teachers!
So a little about me...though I am long winded, so it won't be a little!

I like to know what people look like, so here's me!
I will begin my 11th year teaching this year! I cannot believe it! My first kiddos graduated two years ago! ah! This will be my fourth year teaching second grade. I began my career in 4th grade and was moved {against my will, mind you} to second grade in a mad shuffle at our school. I cried. a lot. every.day. But it only took about a week to fall head over heels in love with 7 year olds! I swear they are little sponges. Everything I do amazes them! A teacher's dream, right!?

I also love being in school! I have my Masters in Reading Ed {K-12...shhhh, don't tell the admin I'm certified up to 12th grade!} and I am National Board Certified in Middle Childhood. I am also state certified in AIG education. See, just like Jen, I look real good on paper! I think we are long lost sister-teachers! I am a nerd!

my little cell tower of men!
So on to why we blog...ideas and stuff! I am one of those weird people who love to do bulletin boards, making newsletters, and volunteer to make notices that the school sends home so I don't have to look at below standard stuff!
So here are the actual newsletters I use. I only use black and white so I can print and send home at school! They have a clean look and adorable clipart! I hope you can use them too! The text is completely editable in Powerpoint!

I am the last in the lineup of meet the authors, so starting in the am it's B2S time!! Be sure and check back every.single.day!!

  20. I love the templates!! Thank you!! Unfortunately, we have to translate everything because the majority of my student's parents are non-English speakers. Is there a way to edit some of the main components?
