Hey All! My name is Colleen and my lil' blog is Fun and Fearless in First. I'm thrilled to be here with you today on Amanda's blog. How cool is she to share her blog space?!
I'm excited to share a little bit about myself with you today. If you like what you read, hop on over and check out my blog!

I'm also blessed to have two beautiful nieces! I write about them all the time on my blog. I just can't help myself. They are so darn adorable!
I have been teaching for eight years now, but teaching is actually my second career! I started out in advertising, but just didn't quite feel satisfied. The minute I walked into the classroom I felt at home. I've taught four different grade levels (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th), in three different districts, and two states (MD and NY). The past eight years have been a whirlwind, but I wouldn't change a thing!
I currently teach first grade in Syracuse, NY. I grew up in Rochester, NY and it's great to be so close to home, where most of my family still lives.
In My Room
If you popped into my classroom unannounced, you would most likely see kids working around the room independently, in pairs, and see a small group with me at my reading table. I just recently wrote a post about Daily 5, which is one of my favorite times of the day!
