Class Website

It's a work in progress, but check back in a little while!

All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten

Welcome to our classroom blog. My name is Mrs. Beaver and I am very excited about where this year will be taking us. This is my 10th year teaching and I can't wait to get started. As you can tell I am a technology junky. I love blogs, websites, podcasts and anything innovative.

Besides learning, I love to read. Some of my favorites are Hatchet, Love, Ruby Lavender, The City of Ember and Walk Two Moons. I am always looking for a good recommendation, too. I also enjoy running, biking and swimming. I have plans to be running in the Chicago Marathon again this year and maybe the Iron Man Wisconsin next year- unless my sanity returns.

I have a three year old son named James. In order to promote global cooling you will definitely run into us biking. He has a horn on his bike trailer and if you make eye contact be ready for a drive by honking.

My husband Matt is an avid Cubs fan. Because I grew up outside of Chicago, I too share his love of the Cubbies, and losing. Our pug Wrigley, has also been known to roll off the coach to catch up on the score.

Well, that's all for now. Check back in to see how the year unfolds. I can't wait to add before and after pics of the classroom. I love a good makeover!
