New to blogging

This is officially my first post on this blog and I will just tell you I have no idea what I am doing.  Although I am new to blogging, I am not new to teaching.  This is my 15th year of teaching in Mississippi.  I taught Kindergarten for 1 year, 1st grade for 3 years, and 2nd grade for 7 years.  I have been the interventionist for grades K-8 for the past three years.  Along with interventionist, I also serve as the elelmentary TST Chairperson and Test Coordinator.  I run back and forth between the elementary and middle school (Make you go CRAZY).  Next year I will be going back to 2nd grade.  (HOORAY!)  I am really excited about going back to the classroom.  I have learned a lot in the last three years that I believe will have a posititve impact on my teaching.
I have been blog stalking for the last month gathering ideas for next year.  I am looking for anything related to Common Core, Reading Streets, and Envision Math.  Our theme next year is Rock and Roll, so I have really been stalking Babbling Abby at The Inspired Apple.  I have also been stalking Jamie at 2nd Grade Stuff.  I am sure there will be lots of stalking going on at my computer between now and next August. 
Did I  mention I am super excited about going back to 2nd grade????? I am also excited about this blog!
