I have been saying for the last three years that I wanted to create a blog to chronicle my life as a middle school teacher. Well, that has yet to happen until today! I am gearing up for my fourth year of teaching and decided that now is the time.
Quick intro. Most of my friends and students call me "CJ". I teach 8th grade science at a Title I school in Texas to the most amazingggg kids in the world. A few years back I was a Teach For America Corps Member, and you bet I'm still teaching! I also have a part-time job so that I can save up for grad school. I'm a Jersey girl that lives deep in the heart of Texas, with a few college years in Miami squeezed in there. I love all things Dallas Cowboys, pearls (hence the title of the blog), and DIY Professional Development.
I hope to connect with like-minded educators across various subjects, grade levels, and states. Please pardon my novice blogging skills and design as I get used to a new domain. I am looking forward to this new adventure!
Peace and blessings,
