Where Has the Time Gone

I apologize for my absence. Life has been extremely busy and so rewarding at the end of 2013 and for the beginning half of the school year. 2013 brought lots of ups and downs for my family, but all in all I am thankful for all we were blessed to experience. 

Since my last sorry for the lengthy gap...things have been crazy. But a good crazy. I was honored in being name Teacher of the Year for my school. I then went on to also be given the title at the county wide level. Never in a million years would I have seen myself receiving such a prestigious honor only 6 years into my career. I am truly blessed and still, honestly, in shock and awe of this honor.  I absolutely love teaching and can't wait to see what 2014 has to hold. 

I don't know if you have ever visited, but I highly recommend you visit this site. With the generosity of donors on this site I have been able to provide materials for my students I would not have otherwise been able to afford. If you would like any insight to using this site or tips please message me. I am more than happy to help you get started in this new adventure. 

I am currently on my last few hours of winter holidays before starting back to work. I look forward to heading back and getting in the swing of things. I truly enjoy the maturity that the last half of the year brings to students. It is amazing to see the growth and change that takes place over a year in school. There is still so much to learn, so much to be done, and so little time to make it all happen. Bring it on! 

I hope that you and yours have had a most amazing holiday season and a Merry Christmas. I leave you by asking that you consider visiting my TPT store and helping me to spread the word about my products. Any help is very appreciated.

  1. Hi April,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
