My New Blog Design and Open House Week At TBA!

As many of you know, I have been wanting a new blog design for awhile now. Well, I am so super excited to share my new creation with you! I couldn't have done it without Lindsey from Lindsey Joy designs (formally Sour Apple Designs). Lindsey has been so patient, creative and amazing throughout this whole design process. If you need some inspiration and a true professional, Lindsey is your girl. She is A-MAZING! I still have a few things to tweak, but I think all of our blogs are always a work in progress, right? I am so excited I finally have a Blog Button that everyone can grab!!!  Let me know what you all think.

I am also linking up with Teaching Blog Addict for their Open House Week. Click on the picture below to link up or just read about all the awesome bloggers out there.


Open House Week
Day 1
Meet the Teacher:
My name is Jaime and I teach second grade at a great K-12 school in Southern California. I have been at this school for most of my teaching career. It has been 14 years now! Wow! I am so lucky to work with such a group of dedicated teachers. We are not only a school, but a community as well. I have two boys of my own, 8 and 5. I have my master's in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. I love being in the classroom, but may want to join the administrative ranks once my own children are older.I am currently the Elementary Coordinator at our school. I have also been the GATE and ELL coordinator as well.  I started blogging in May after I blog stalked for a few months. I found out about teacher blogging when  my girlfriend introduced me to the world of Pinterest! Every since then, I have been addicted, obsessed or completely consumed by blogging and making products to share with others.
I am in my second year of teaching second grade. Before I taught first grade for 11 years and 2 years of fourth grade. I absolutely LOVE second grade and can't believe I didn't switch sooner. I am really into integrating technology into my lessons. I wrote many grants last year through Donors Choose to bring technology into my classroom. We now have touch screen computers, ELMOS, laptops, iTouches and more to help enhance the learning of our students. It is amazing what a little technology can do to grab the attention of our students. 
Check back later this week for more Open House Week fun-Classroom Photos.
