About Me

Hey Ya'll! I'm Marcy and thanks for stopping by little piece of the internet! After graduating college in 2010, I started teaching 1st grade. I was fresh out of college and terrified! Once I got the hang of things, I quickly fell in love with education and have continued with that passion over the past few years. After a year in 1st, I taught 2nd grade for 4 years from 2011-2015, I have truly found my passion.

 Last July, I became a presenter for SDE. You can read all about my first presenting experience here. I'll be in Vegas this summer for the iTeach 2nd Conference! Come see me! 

This guy below is lucky enough to be my husband! We've been married for 3 years and what a ride it has been. I wouldn't trade any of it. We recently became parents for the first time. Our daughter was born in September 2015 and I left the classroom to become a stay at home mom.  You can read about that journey here

I started this blog in September of 2012 as a way to connect with other teachers and share my resources.  I have always created activities and decorations for my classroom because I just like adding that personal touch! This journey has brought so many amazing opportunities for me and my family. I have grown so much as an educator and made some of the BEST friends that live all over the United States. 

In my spare time I love to read, ride horses, dance, listen to Texas country music, spend time with family and friends, play with our fur baby, and do all sorts of crafty things!

  1. OMG! I love your blog design! I like mine but it isn't Texas enough for me! I am on the lookout for some great blog designers to get a custom design going. I feel like I was reading my autobiography on your page! I am also from Texas, not a raider but a Longhorn and LOVE college football and Texas country! I just resigned from being a second grade teacher but I loved it so much! I'm staying home with my 10 month old right now.

    Glad I found your blog!!
