Where do I begin?

I am so excited about this blog. I mean, SO EXCITED. 

First of all, it's beautiful. Erin Gray at www.twothirdshazeldesign.com did an incredible job!

Second of all, it is a long-time coming. I have been toying with the idea of starting a teaching blog for over a year. I think my students are amazing, I think my school is incredible. I think that I work in a state where education is at the forefront of the conversation, and I am excited about that. I think about teaching all.the.time. But it's a different thing to subject others to what I think about teaching, my students, or my school. 

Here are my hopes:

I hope that this blog allows me to bring something to the teaching community that inspires other teachers.
I hope that it makes connecting with other teachers who have amazing ideas a little easier. I have already stolen so many ideas, but I have never been able to tell any of those educators thank you!
I hope that you like what you see, and want to come back to hear more about my little slice of Tennessee heaven.

Welcome to The Tennessee Classroom.
