Leslie {First Grade Frenzy}

Hey Everyone!

I'm Leslie from First Grade Frenzy, and I am sooooooooooo excited (and a wee bit nervous!) to be a part of this new blogging adventure, with all of these SUPER amazing bloggers and teachers!

Here is a little bit about me:

I am a first grade teacher from Montreal, Quebec, CANADA! (EH?!!!!!!). It's starting to get cold up here ... but no snow is in the forecast ... YET!! I am a mommy to four SUPER children (My oldest is 7, and my youngest just turned 1!!! YIKES!!!).  I have been married to my soul mate ... Mr. Leslie ... for 8 unbelievable  years!  I'm always at an arena ... somewhere ... in this province ... watching my boys play hockey (I'm a very proud hockey mama!) or cheering on my daughter during her figure skating shows (I have now come to terms with the fact, that I am the LOUDEST mama there!). Life is slightly insane right now, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

There is something about teaching first grade that electrifies me. I can't exactly explain it ... but I feel like a better person when I teach. It completes me. I love it! It's simply my "PASSION".  My classroom is ZEN, especially with some of the amazing chaos at home ... these days!

I must confess ... I am a potato chip addict ... I LOVE CHIPS! Eating them makes me ... HAPPY! I don't have just one favorite flavor.. I love them all ... I can eat them for breakfast or for supper ... ANY.TIME.OF.THE.DAY!!!! It's serious ...

My second obsession is with word walls ... no joke ... I love me, my word walls ... I'm sure that all of you do, too! That's why I created this Super Hero Word Wall! Just click on the picture below to grab your copy!

To Infinity and Beyond!
