Hello, my name is Jeri Dell Sandberg and this is my cute husband of 30 years. (We are in front of The White House on a trip to D.C) I have two daughters and two sons and eight almost nine grandchildren! I have been teaching for 25 years and for 19 years I taught first grade. THEN I switched to second grade and discovered Smart Boards! I love teaching second grade. You could describe me as an art-aholic! When I meet old students on the street they always go off about how much they loved doing art in my class. I have a bachelor of arts in Elementary Education, with a minors in reading and art. I have a master's degree in Elementary Education/Reading. My ESL kids are a joy and I have my ESL endorsement. For two years I taught Reading Recovery and I learned a ton, but missed having a class. I have been around for a long time, but still feel like a brand new teacher some days. I never want to turn into a grouchy old teacher, so I love learning new things. This whole blog thing is a blast. I love getting ideas from other fabulous teachers and tweeking them to fit my style. I am in awe of some of the amazing teachers out there. So... here I go with my new blog! P.S. Thanks to my darling daughter, Avree who is teaching me about blogs!
