Two families? I am truly Blessed!

Teaching Blog Traffic School
I cannot believe Christmas Eve is already upon us. Like many of you, I am so blessed with a wonderful family...I've been married to an incredible man for 21 years and have two FABULOUS children. I love my job as an educator and know I make a difference in children's lives every day.

 I am also very blessed to be part of another family....a blogging family! During the summer I decided to start a teaching blog called Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies.  I really didn't have any idea of what I was doing but that hasn't stopped me before so why would it stop me this time? :)  I somehow "ran into" Teaching Blog Traffic School's facebook page which led me to "the school".  Wow! What a gem!  Not only did I learn many things about blogging and promoting my blog but I was included in a "TBTS Secret Group".  LOL! No, we are not like the FBI or CIA but we are a group of teacher bloggers that purchased the TBTS at  minimal cost who network, laugh, and even cry together.  I cannot tell you how incredibly blessed I feel to "know" these ladies and a few gentlemen!   I would like to thank Charity Preston of The Organized Classroom Blog and Teaching Blog Traffic School for sharing her wealth of knowledge and guiding us bloggers to success!  I know I have made life long friends through our secret group and will recieve support not only for my blog but for my health issues, weight loss, teaching, or anything else I may need through the years.   I encourage anyone who has a blog or who is thinking of starting one to consider joining TBTS (Click on the pick above for more info), you won't be sorry!

THANK YOU and I LOVE YOU to all my TBTS Secret Group friends! I am blessed to have you all in my life.   May the new year bring you lots of LOVE, SUCCESS, LAUGHTER, and GOOD HEALTH!

Happy Holidays!
