Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop!

Janis at Grade Three is the Place for Me had this great idea for newbies, so I thought I'd join in.  
Here goes.........

What state you are in?

The most relaxed state ever, as I'm on summer hols - hehe!  When teaching I'm in a disorganised, stressy, exhausted  state!!  
Sorry for the lame jokes......I can't answer because I'm not in the 'States' and my little country doesn't have states, so I'm answering with country:  Ireland.

Your current teaching position

I currently teach 1st Grade and have been doing so for the last eight years.

 Your teaching experience

I have been teaching for 25 years.  I have taught in London, England; Edinburgh, Scotland and Bavaria Germany.  I have taught most grades up to Grade 5, but am happiest with Grades 1 - 3.

 When you started blogging

I started my teacher blog around April of this year, but I am not a prolific poster - no self-discipline - my mantra - I must try harder!

 Share a blogging tip / blogging resource

Try to leave comments when you can - I often don't know if my posts reach people.  
Also I had no idea that the default on comments, until I read it on someone's blog, was the awful word verifier!  I turned it off pretty quick, as I know how much they annoy me!  They stopped me commenting on many blogs because I couldn't read the letters!  
Lastly I watch videos as much as I can from other bloggers as I learn tips and tricks more quickly from them.
