Well, here it is, the official launch of my blog! I was so incredibly inspired when going to the TPT conference this summer that I made a goal for myself to get this thing up and running. A HUGE thank you to Honey Bunch Blog Design for their amazing work and the quickness with which this was all put together!

I am very excited about the upcoming week! I am going to Boston to attend the first ever Math Plus conference hosted by one of my total faves, Greg Tang! I call him my math  boyfriend! Hehe! He is an amazing thinker and the strategies that he shares just make so much sense. I know that if someone had taught me strategies such as those he shares, I would have had a heck of a lot more fun in math classes in high school and college. I have learned so much from him already, but know I will learn even more in the coming week. I can't wait to share it with teachers! What educators are an inspiration to you?

I am in Arizona, and if you are too, you know that we are having a teacher shortage. Where are you located and is your state experiencing the same thing? I would love to hear from you!


  1. I love your blog :) I am getting a new design for my blog and cannot wait!

    I live in central Ohio. We do not have a teacher shortage by any means but there are openings typically. I am originally from Northern Ohio and spent 6 years looking for a job up there. Most school districts up there are laying off teachers (due to budget cuts etc)...

  2. Hey Rachel! Your blog looks awesome! No teacher shortages here. In fact, our teachers can't get jobs :( I live in PA. Our Governor did one heck of a job screwing up our entire education system so I can't wait to vote him out! Good luck with the blog!

    1. The school district that I work in typically recruits teachers from PA so that totally makes sense!
