Brand Spankin' New

I am brand spankin' new to the bloggy world... so here's a little bit about myself...

Name: Sandy... Mrs. Contreras to my littles, but I have heard every variation from adults and children alike! It can be a tough name to say because of the "curly r's"...like contrary, but instead of the long e sound say us...

Family: I have been married to the hubbs for 12 years. He's been my sweetheart for almost 14 years. It really doesn't feel that long because he has a great sense of humor and is so patient with me! 

We have three beautiful children. I am sure I will be posting about them and our crazy family adventures.

Faith: I am a Christ Follower. I sincerely believe that I was called to be a teacher and part of my job is to guide my students to become who God created them to be. 

Career: I work at a K-5 elementary school in Texas. My school is one of several in this large city, but it is the BEST place to work. I currently teach first grade, but have taught second. We do a lot of looping and moving around. I plan on teaching every grade level in elementary hence the name 'Elementary Expedition.' I can't wait to share my journey with you!

Leisure: I love to travel, shop, read, take pics, and I LOVE music. I plan on sharing this with you too!

So why have I decided to start blogging? I love my job and how being a teacher has positively affected all aspects of my life and I figure I can share some of the positive with you!

Please be patient with me as I figure things out and add more content...Remember I am brand spankin' new and I learn a lot through trial and error.
