Woo Hoo--I'm blogging!!!

I've decided that the time has come to take the plunge--I'm going to finally jump on the blogging bandwagon!

So a little about me (in bulleted listed form, because that's how I work):

  • I am a 6th grade teacher in Decatur, Illinois.
  • Teaching is not humanly possible without coffee. I'm sure of it.
  • My desk could be likened to an endangered animal, it is very rarely seen.
  • I have a slight font addiction.
  • When I'm not teaching, I'm a photographer.
  • I procrastinate like nobody's business (which is why I'm creating a blog instead of working on my midterms that are due Wednesday).
  • I've become so much of a coffee snob that coffee from the teacher's lounge will no longer do. My coffee is either brewed at home before I leave work or in the coffee maker that resides in the corner of my classroom.
  • My students have identified that there is such thing as a "Ms. Ellison Sized Coffee."
  • Charlie, my dog, is the cutest dog on the planet. 
Let me present Exhibit A.
