For a little over a year now, I've been blogging at The Nest Effect. I am not going to stop blogging at The Nest Effect, but instead hope to juggle both at once.
My awesome readers on The Nest Effect's Facebook page helped me pick the name The Learning Effect. So fitting - I love it.
I grew up in Northeastern Pennsylvania near Scranton. I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in August 2005 to attend the University of Utah. I earned my degree in Elementary Education in May 2011. I completed my student teaching in a 3rd grade classroom and my first full-time teaching position was in 2nd grade.
For the 2012 - 2013 school year I will be teaching at a brand new charter school just North of Salt Lake City. The charter school has a business emphasis and lots of awesome technology, so I'm really excited to start this new teaching journey. I will be teaching 4th grade.
There's also a page (linked at the top of the blog) called "Free Printables" where you'll soon be able to find freebies to download!
