Hi there! I’m Lauren from Teaching is the Sweetest Thing, and I am beyond excited to have a chance to guest post for Kristin. Two years ago, I blogged frequently and L-O-V-E-D every second of it. However, the demands of my own classroom and my family necessitated my blog hibernating for a short time. It will definitely make it’s reappearance one day, but in the meantime, I am thrilled to share with you through Kristin. A little about me… I’ve taught 2nd and 5th grade – almost both ends of the Elementary Education spectrum. I loved teaching both grades, and I am currently now in 5th grade. I am passionate about literacy and have found my niche integrating reading into content subjects, primarily Social Studies. Thanks for taking the time to stop by! If you want to check out more of my ideas, be sure to stop by HERE!
