Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop

You guys have been posting great linky parties that I just can't resist! This linky party (which perhaps is synonymous with "Blog Hop"?) is hosted by Janice at Grade Three is the Place For Me! (click her button below) and is for new bloggers.

Here are the newbie questions:
1. What state are you in?
2. What is your current teaching position?
3. What is your teaching experience?
4. When did you start blogging?
5. Share a blogging tip/blogging resource.

Here are my newbie responses:
1. I am in Virginia.
2. I will start teaching second grade this fall. Yay!
3. I am a new teacher!! However, I have pre-service experiences...during undergrad, I had practicum experiences in grades K-5. During my graduate year, I student taught in third grade during the fall and first grade during the spring. Lastly, for the past four summers I have taught rising kindergartners and first graders in a summer program. I love working with kids and wanted to gain experience to help prepare me for my own classroom!
4. I began blogging to serve as an e-portfolio during the spring semester of my graduate year. Only recently have I started joining in on the regular bloggy fun by participating in linky parties (like this!), adding the followers gadget, and commenting on others' blogs.
5. I suggest joining linky parties because it's a great way to meet new bloggers!

Stop on by the Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop to meet new friends! :)

p.s. Thank you so much, Mona (from First Grade Schoolhouse), Brigid (from Brigid's Daily Lesson Log), and Mrs. Goodwin (from I Live 2 Learn, I Love 2 Grow) for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award!! I'll complete the rules over the weekend. :)
