Meet the Teacher

Tell us a little something about you...

Hi! I'm Holly Harwood. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 15 years and have three children, two boys and a girl. It's always busy at our house with two dogs and three kids. We love to go, go, go! 
I started blogging with my class last year and my teaching partners talked me into starting our own! We are so excited to enter this new world of so many fun, and creative ways to teach!
How long have you been teaching?

This is my third year teaching. I have taught kindergarten, 2nd and now this year I'm teaching 1st.

You might not know........
Well, you might not know... I love books! I love to read as much as I love to teach! I love to use books to help get students excited about reading and the lesson I'm teaching. I could spend all day at any bookstore and I have a kindle! I love to touch the books and  read through children's books for fun!

What are you looking most forward to this school year?

I'm most looking forward to another new grade level to explore. I loved kindergarten and I think I loved 2nd even more... What could be better but the middle of both! It's the best of both worlds!

What do you need to improve?

I need to improve my word walls and really work on using the new common core standards! I have a feeling it will be a labor of love to post and plan for a brand new set of standards and expectations! Whew! I am exhausted just writing about it!

What teaching supplies can you *not* live without?
My SMART board of course! I truly am lost without it.

Books, books, and more books!
