Welcome to my blog!

     This blog will be my way of continuously collaborating with teachers.  I want you to feel comfortable sharing here and collaborating with each other.  My hope is that we learn from each other through positive and productive discourse!

     So what's on my plate?  I am wrapping my mind around the fact that I will be back at work NEXT WEEK!  The summer has gone by so fast.  I can say that I enjoyed my summer a lot.  I made sure I got my binder organized for the year.  I also made me a new journal and planner.

     This year I will be more focused because we have a new instructional coach for ELAR/Social Studies. (Yay!)  This is going to free me up so that I can hone in on the skills and strategies that will move our students to mastery in Math and Science.  I have so many ideas (strategies, virtual book study, etc.) that I want to share with you this school year.  First and foremost, I want to support you in your classroom and throughout your teaching journey. 

     I look forward to our collaborative work together and the knowledge that we will share with each other.  Remember, iron sharpens iron!  Invite your friends!

     So, what have you been doing this summer?  Post a comment about your summer and any professional development opportunities you participated in.

     I look forward to reading your comments!

Until next time, Each One Teach One,


  1. Hello, Mrs. Lightsey, I am finished with my region 10 videos Yay! My summer has gone so fast, but I did manage to go to South Padre for a few days. I have spent my summer mostly at home with my son and my dog. I did a lot of my PD sessions online, but I also did 7 hrs in person. I specifically enjoyed one that helped me to understand students with dyslexia. And believe it or not I am excited to begin a new school year. I will see you soon!

  2. Yay!!! I am so glad your summer was relaxed. I am looking forward to this new school year. I finished with my Region 10 videos too! So glad to have that out of the way. I also did my training online! Thanks for responding and have a great rest of your summer!

  3. I have done absolutely nothing but rest all summer! I've been in Frog street training this week and learning about centers. The training has been amazing and I am excited about my new journey as a Pre-K teacher. See you guys soon.

    1. I am so glad to hear that you also rested! I am excited about this new journey for you as well! Have a great training. See ya in a couple of weeks :)
