Well hello there and welcome to my teacher blog and classroom!
My name is Erin, I’m a 2nd-grade teacher in Colorado. I have been teaching for 6 years now (sheesh already) and I just had to count on my fingers to make sure that was right-haha. I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-grade in those 6 years. I have spent most of that time in 2nd-grade and that is where my heart is!
In 2015, I decided to start my teacher social media adventure. I started following mostly 2nd-grade teachers and realized there was a huge network of teachers that had the same passion and excitement for teaching that I had. I hid behind my phone/computer watching thinking I had nothing to share. I noticed a lot of the things that were being shared were similar to the things that I was doing in my classroom. So why not share what I am doing?? It was difficult finding the perfect name for teacher self and brand. I knew that I was moving from 2nd grade to 3rd grade and did not want to have a specific grade level in my brand, so I decided on Happy Little Teacher. I felt like that fit me and my teaching style. I love all things bright and colorful in my classroom that make students and myself HAPPY! So I become the Happy Little Teacher.
