Hi! I’m Deirdre (a.k.a. Hooty). Welcome to my tiny little corner of cyberspace!
I have been teaching for over 20 years. Frankly, at this point it’s hard to keep up with how long I’ve been teaching. I honestly don’t know if it’s because the number is getting so big or because I’ve lost my marbles. Most of my time has been spent teaching 3rd grade in a rural title 1 school in Texas, but I have taught 2nd through 5th grades. I am currently teaching 5th grade math which I LOVE!!
I’m married to a high school teacher and have two “Little Hooties” who aren’t so little anymore. In my free time I blog hop, tinker on my computer, read, and binge watch Netflix. I never plan to jump out of a plane, but I do enjoy indoor skydiving. Even though I really want to simplify my life, I’ve decided to add blogging to my already hectic life. You only live once, right?
My Teaching Style
I love using technology, interactive notebooks, and hands-on activities in my classroom. My firm belief is math shouldn’t be scary for kids! Because of this I do what I can to make my class fun, engaging, and accessible to struggling learners.
