About Me

Hi Everyone, I'm Elizabeth Rossmiller. I am currently a 1st - 5th grade technology instructor at a Title I school in Oregon. I love to share technology ideas with both students & teachers!

I started this blog in July of 2013 to share some of my experiences as an elementary teacher. After graduating from college, I was convinced that I was going to be an upper elementary teacher. I just had finished student teaching in a 5th grade class and was ready to move on from teaching preschool, so I applied for every 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade position I was qualified for. After lots of rejection, I had an interview that changed my life. The principal saw something in me that I didn't see... Instead of offering me the 6th grade position I applied for, I was told I was meant to be a 3rd grade teacher and was offered a 3rd grade position. I taught 3rd grade for two years and was in heaven. After budget cuts, I was moved to teaching a 1st and 2nd grade blend, and even though I was terrified to teach 1st graders, it was then that I KNEW without a doubt that I was meant to be a primary teacher. 

Entering my 7th year of teaching, I started a new adventure; teaching technology. Now that I am a technology instructor, I get to experience all the wonderful things each grade level has to offer. I start my day preparing 5th graders for the rigors of middle school  and end my day watching light bulbs go off with 1st graders. Couldn't ask for anything more!

I am your newest follower! Seriously cute blog. I LOVE 3rd grade and am lucky to have been teaching third for the last 6 years. My favorite teacher is also my third grade teacher. Which is how I know that I was meant for 3rd!

I think that your All About Me was wonderfully inspiring! I am a teacher blog stalker and I, too, have learned, stolen, and been incredibly inspired by other educator bloggers. The blogs are my go to places for lesson creativity and to see what other teachers are doing throughout the US. Many thanks!
