Vegas Teacher/Blogger Meet Up!

The night finally came....the night I had been waiting for...the teacher/blogger meet up!

It was so much fun! We had drinks and snacks and they had a raffle where we could win prizes. I won the Scholastic written by Erica Bohrer from Erica Bohrer's First Grade. She even signed the inside of the book. The CD came from Jennifer and her blog is Simply Kinder. I told her how much I loved her blog and she gave the CD to me with freebies from a collection of different bloggers. So I went away feeling pretty lucky!

At the meet up I met many of the teachers that I read and follow their blogs. It was fun to put a person to the actual name. I wanted to share with you who I met.

Kathleen Pedersen from Growing Kinders...I use a lot of her centers in my classroom.


Fran Kramer from Kindergarten Crayons.....she changed my teaching life when I found her blog. I started following her and through her blog I was linked to this whole world that I never knew existed.

Deanna Jump from Mrs. Jump Class......I use a lot of her Literacy Units but also her popcorn words, and guided reading program.
Alessia from Mrs. Albanese's Kindergarten Class (the sweetest teacher I met by far) I love her blog and I use her center items in my classroom.
But I was even more excited to spend time with the ladies that I had met on Sunday night. There was about 8 of us met up for dinner at the Grand Lux Café. Amy from Teaching in Blue Jeans set it up so we would have people to go to lunch and dinner with and so we would have familiar faces to spend the week with.

I had so much fun with each and everyone of them! From left to right it is Amy from Teaching in Blue Jeans, LC from The Beezy Teacher, Michelle from Journey into TK, me, Susan from Teaching Doodles, Elizabeth from Kicking it in Kindergarten, and Holly from Mrs. Ehle's Kindergarten Class. I look forward to a long friendship and we are hoping to connect our classes through Skype!
