Hi everyone and welcome to Kindergarten Chaos, my online virtual classroom!
Today I am linking up with my ‘Kinder Tribe’ collaborative blog to share a few tidbits about myself and my passion for teaching kinder! My name is Abigail, but I usually go by Abbie. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada with my husband of almost 17 years and my 3 kids. My kids are 14, 8, and 6. This school year they will be going into the 9th, 3rd, and 1st grades. AHHHH…I can’t believe I am going to have a high schooler!
I have taught at the same school since 2006 and all 3 of my kids have attended the same school, which is nice for mama! My first year I taught 2nd grade and loved it! I got pregnant with my daughter that school year and decided to take a leave of absence, which extended to a total of 5 years and 1 more baby! 🙂 But during those 5 years my oldest son attended the school and I was there on a daily basis as the PTO President. So glad for that experience and time home with my babies!
In 2012, I got the opportunity to come back and teach 1 session of 1/2 day kindergarten. I was hesitant at first, since the thought of teaching little ones the foundations of education petrified me!! But after the first day, I fell in love and my passion for teaching Kindergarten has only gotten stronger and more passionate!
I ended up teaching 2 years of 1/2 day kindergarten, until the 2014/2015 school year when I began teaching full-day kindergarten. What a huge difference full-day kindergarten is and I love it! Besides teaching and keeping up with this kindergarten blog, I have a lifestyle blog, Lovin’ Our Chaos, where I share simple crafts, simple meals, and DIY projects.
