I'm Cathy, a former kindergarten teacher with a passion for early learners. Providing our earliest learners with tools, instead of excuses, can empower these students with success! I also LOVE teacher training and providing meaning professional development that can be used in classrooms immediately.

Spring Break Fun
Part 1 - OBX
After Easter at my parents, my husband and I decided to spend a few days of "US TIME" at a friend's place on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We are lucky enough to live within 1 hour of this great place. We spent time looking for sea glass, eating, and enjoying each other's company.
Part 2 - A FREEBIE arrived!
Have you ever entered a blog give-away? Well, I won one. I was so excited to win free clipart from Krista Wallden. She is amazing!
Part 3 - CHECK OUT MY NEW DESIGN!
I can't believe how wonderful my new blog design is. Shanon and Blogs Fit for a Queen were wonderful to work with and I am delighted by the outcome. I still have to figure out some of the buttons and links, but I am thrilled. It was just updated today!
Part 4 - A Presentation for SVRC
I am excited to travel to Harrisonburg, Virginia tomorrow and present a "Routines in Writing" workshop to the Shenandoah Valley Reading Council Spring Event. This will include my favorite "T" words: teaching, training, and TALKING. Another bonus: My mom is going with me! Stay tuned for some pictures.
Part 5 - Randolph College Alumni Soccer Game
Finally, my Spring Break will finish at the Randolph College Alumni Soccer Game this Saturday night in Lynchburg. Our oldest plays soccer for Randolph and our youngest has committed to play there next year. We couldn't be happier. It's a great college with a great soccer program that builds men, not just players. It's truly a family. The picture I'm posting is 2 years old...I need to take a new one this weekend!
Part 6 - A Blog Hop
I've spent part of the day getting my blog hop post ready to go live Friday. It's all about Poetry and Shared Reading. I think you'll love it. And there will be FREEBIES at each stop!
We didn't really have any big plans for Spring Break, but it's turned out to be pretty amazing!
