Kinder Tribe: All About THIS Kinder Teacher - Down River Resources

Kinder Tribe: All About THIS Kinder Teacher

Howdy, friends!
I am so excited that you stopped by! For many of you this may be your first time DOWN RIVER! If so, I hope you find something that you are passionate about, get a chuckle from, or that you are curious about...there's a little something for everyone!
I live, teach, and create out of El Paso, Texas, known to my inner circle, which you are now a part of, as "Down River." You'll have to infer the meaning but it has a lot to do with geography and the origin of our local river. (Just sayin'!)
I have been teaching for 10 years and so excited to share my journey with you as I conquer the classroom in Texas (or try like heck to do so!) It is sure challenging at times, but I trust that this is my calling. I love reaping what I sow throughout the school year; that is really the beauty of teaching. It's a highlight! Don't you think?
I am thrilled to be a part of the Kinder Tribe, a group designed for Kinder teachers to collaborate and help one another. I am really looking forward to reading about more classrooms, teaching strategies, and meet all of the beautiful people, who are blessed to be called to teach. I am humbled to be among you.
I added an Instagram account this summer and am really enjoying to get to know more teachers from Texas and around the world, many from the Kinder Tribe. I try to keep it interesting in sharing my life through a creative lens. (It sounds enticing, doesn't it?! Check it out. If you are so inclined, follow me.
Click HERE to check out new collaborative blog, by kindergarten teachers for kindergarten teachers! There's many giveaways to enter when you get there by some creative tribe members near and far.
I hope you will come back and join me for my BIG classroom reveal, coming to a computer near you mid-August.
Happy Blog Hoppin' in the meantime!

  2. I love Classroom reveals. It is so fun to see all the creative arrangements. I have a new 'test' for choosing your career... "Do you like markers of all colors and styles?" If you answered YES, become a teacher!
