Whooo Are We?

Hoot! Hoot! Welcome!

We are two second grade teachers from Illinois who are using the power of the Internet to receive inspiration from others worldwide, and we want to offer a bit of our own passion and excitement for what we do.  

I am Courtney, I have been teaching for 11 years, and I love to learn!  Just like I tell my students, I love school so much that I decided to come back for the rest of my life.  I enjoy creating lessons and activities that inspire my students to come back each day without moaning and groaning, even though there are days that I feel that way.

I am Sarah, and I have been teaching 20 years.  I am excited about learning and want to create the same excitement for my students.  Ever since I can remember, I have had the urge to create and believe that we all have our unique way of putting our stamp on the world.  I learn and grow a little each day... I am also a bit on the nutty side, yet I feel this is a requirement!

My Grandson is in first grade this year, and he is simply a joy, even when he is ornery!  

Thanks so much for taking the time to fly on over to our blog! We are happy to have you here and hope you find something useful and inspiring!
