Hello! Welcome to The Rickey Reading Blog! I am so excited to start this blogging journey!
I am a first grade teacher in northern Virginia. I have been teaching for 2 years and I absolutely love it! I have wanted to be a teacher my whole life and I am extremely happy to be doing what I love. I spend most of my time in my classroom lesson planning and creating new fun activities for my students but when I am home I enjoy running, hanging out with friends and eating ice cream. I have a pet cat named Comet who is 13 years old and is always cuddled under the blankets sleeping. My cat is usually the reason I am running late in the morning when I don’t want to get out of bed. I cannot wait to start this blog and share more about myself!
Why am I blogging?
I decided to start blogging to help parents and other teachers by sharing the things I have learned so far. I want to share ideas about topics like teaching kids to read, helping motivate kids to learn and how to help kids continue learning at home.
