Let me clarify, I am not just any bear, I am a Pierce Bear, as in Arbuckle Elementary Schools mascot, well I am not actually the mascot but I am officially a contracted full time 1st grade teacher beginning in August! Yay! I am officially a teacher. And not only a teacher but a teacher at the adorable, wonderful elementary school right here in the community where we live! I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am for my 1st year as a teacher. I have been finding a ton of wonderful blogs about teaching and I cannot wait to steal some of their wonderful ideas.
