About Me!

I'm so excited to start blogging! This has been a dream of mine for a while and I am excited to start this new journey and share my classroom happenings while also learning what other amazing teachers are doing in their classrooms!

My mom, little sister {she'll always be little to me}, and myself

A little about me...
My name is Elizabeth and I am entering my fifth year of teaching! I look back and can't believe I've taught four full school years... where did the time go?!?! I've taught 3rd grade for two years, a 1st and 2nd grade blend, and a 2nd and 3rd grade blend. This year I will just be teaching 2nd grade and I couldn't be more thrilled! I thought I wanted to be an upper elementary teacher, but am LOVING the primary world!

I was the little girl who knew she wanted to be a teacher when I was, like, 4. I'm sure many other teachers know what I'm talking about! For Christmas I asked for school supplies, my preferred choice of a play time activity was 'pretend school' with a class full of fuzzy stuffed animals, I would spend my allowance on teaching posters (I had a long division poster hanging in my room... who does that!?!), and I forced my poor dear little sister to be my "live" pupil as often as she would let me. I must confess, I'm a total teacher nerd!

In third grade {I grew that pumpkin and begged my mom to let me take it to school}
 I started teaching at a small private school in Portland, Oregon. I spent three amazing years at that school! The kids were amazingly bright, cheery, and just plain sweet! Something was missing... I needed a new challenge and new place to explore. Life and God lead me to that challenge. Last school year, I received a call to teach on the Pacific Coast. I couldn't turn it down! I love the beach, and NOW, I get to live literally seconds from the beach (hence the name of my blog).

When I'm not being a teacher nerd, I like to go for long walks on the beach (ha ha), sing, visit my family, spend time getting in trouble hanging out with my friends, CRAFTING, and most importantly... loving my furry child, Lilo. Lilo is a {crazy hyper} Yorkie Chihuahua mix; a Chorkie to be exact!

Thank you for visiting my blog!

  1. Welcome to blogging! I also previously taught on the Oregon coast (in Newport) and in Portland. Now I'm in Hawaii! Next time I go home to Oregon to visit friends and family, we'll have to have a blogger meet up! A bunch of Oregon bloggers met up this summer and it was so fun!
