About Ms. Leslie Ann

   Hey y'all! I'm Leslie Ann, author of Life in First Grade. I started teaching first grade three years ago. I teach at the same school I attended for 13 years. It's home and I love it.

   I love first grade. It is such an exciting year for the kids and they truly learn so much. I started my teacher blog after discovering another Alabama blogger, Sarah Cooley. Sarah's blog is First Grader...At Last! A teacher friend introduced me to this blog and I have to say, this completely changed the way I teach.  There are so many great ideas out there and it is so inspiring to find fabulous teachers who are willing to document and share their ideas. I hope to provide others with what I get out of teacher blogs: inspiration. 

   One of my favorite hobbies is creating things for my classroom. I love making center activities for my kids, thinking about new ways to teach something, and fun crafts for them to do. There's always something going on in first grade and I love it! My job is never dull!

   When I'm not teaching or creating something for my classroom (which takes up most of my time!), I enjoy reading, shopping (of course, I enjoy this waayyy too much!), spending time with my wonderful family, and watching Gossip Girl (who else wants to be Blair Waldorf? Or at least have her closet!).
