Newbie Bloggers Unite

I'm trying out something new today and joining up with my first linky party! I thought it was only fitting to link up with others who are new to the blogosphere. Janis, over at Grade Three is the Place for Me is hosting a Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop! If you are a new blogger, hop on over to her blog and check it out!
Grade Three is the Place for Me!

All you have to do is answer the following questions:
1. What state you live in.
2. Your current teaching position.
3. Your teaching experience.
4. When you started blogging.
5. Share a blogging tip/resource.

Here are my answers:
1. I live in Minnesota, but I am a recent transplant from South Dakota, where I lived almost my entire life.
2. I am a 6th grade teacher at a small Catholic School.
3. This will be my third year teaching. My first year, I taught 3rd grade in a huge public district in Sioux Falls, SD. Last year I taught 2nd grade in the same school I will be teaching 6th grade at this year. I've kind of been all over the place! :)
4. I only started blogging in July 2012... but I have been blog stalking for quite a while!
5. I don't have a lot of blogging tips, but I'll share my favorite blog that I've been reading a little over a year now: Clutter-Free Classroom. Many of you might be familiar with it, but if you aren't hop over there RIGHT NOW! Seriously,  for any of you who are a little OCD with organization like I am, this blog will be your new best friend!

  6. Welcome to blogland! I have been spending waaaay too much time in the school supply aisles at Walmart and Target. Time for school to start, so I'll quit spending so much money. Glad my Blog Baby Blog page was helpful!
