Meet Christina!

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the internet!

My name is Christina and I am a first grade teacher in a school just outside of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. 

My life is a busy one with 2 children and a husband who owns his own business. Time is precious and I try to make the most of it with my family, friends and all of my interests.  We love spending time at our cottage just hanging out or entertaining friends.  

I have always wanted to to be a teacher.  I remember playing school all the time as a child and deciding this is what I wanted to do.  I have been teaching since 1994 - as a substitute and then full time teacher and I would not do anything else.   I have taught students from Kindergarten to Grade 4 but have taught Grade 1 for most of my career.  I absolutely love that grade.  They are little sponges! The time between January and March is the most magical time in first grade.  So many light bulbs start to come on at that time.

I love to engage students with centers and activities that get them to think and to move around too! I incorporate center based activities into Math and Language everyday and attempt to introduce them into other areas of the curriculum when it is good fit.  I started my store because I figured if my students loved the things I created for them then perhaps others students would as well.  You can check out these popular product as well as many more by clicking on the image. 

I love using social media to connect with other teachers.  My absolute favourite is Instagram.  I share pictures from my classroom daily.  It is a great way to check out my products in action as well to see if you like what you see.  I am always looking for new people to follow as well so I hope to "see" you over on Instagram.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  1. Hi Christina,

    Your word wall information is so clear and doable. It was so helpful to me because I am re-introducing myself to "all things teaching" after a big break. Do you have anything on creating small groups?
