Hello There!!!

I am so excited to start my blogging journey! I have been teaching 1st grade for 18 years now and I love getting new teaching ideas by stealing, collaborating with teacher friends so I thought what better way than to start a blog! So I am jumping right in...I hope to use this platform to share strategies that are going well, some not going so well in my classroom, and to make new friends who have a passion for teaching as much as I do! is the story on the name of my blog... I met my Mr. on Eharmony (I know, I did, your cousin, co-worker, or your BFF did too!) It was after many years of searching for that perfect guy... I searched high, then low, then high again, but he was no where on campus and being that is where I spent most of my time I needed "29 dimensions of compatibility" to help me find a successful relationship. Well low and behold, it worked, we matched and were married 10 months later. :) The entire time we dated people remarked, "Aww, you guys are so in BLISS." Next thing you know everything in my life became started kinda as a joke but it really stuck and I had to change my email address to have the word "bliss" in here I am 7 years later, (the bliss with the Mr. has cooled down just a teeny bit...we have a child :) and I had to come up with a name for my blog....

Mrs. Winter's Bliss had to be it!

So there you have it... I hope you will follow my blog and keep reading about all the blissful things we do in my 1st grade classroom. 

Please leave me a comment...Are you feeling blissful? Do you have a fun name for your blog? How did you choose it? Are you still looking high and low for your Mr.?
