Meet The Teacher Monday

Hello!  It is Meet The Teacher Monday over at Blog Hoppin stop by to meet some amazing teachers!

Tell us a little something about you...

My name is Cora, aka Miss Boucher, from First Grade Exploration.   
I am heading into my 5th year teaching!!  I spent my first two years teaching Kindergarten and will now be in my third year of First Grade.  I absolutely LOVE First Grade!!  The students are now use to the school setting, super cute, and love to laugh/learn.  Their eagerness is an inspiration to me each day. 

A little bit more about me... I am super close with my family, and I am a SPORTS FANATIC! I love watching  football, NASCAR, baseball, hockey, basketball... you name it! I can be found keeping busy playing volleyball, snowboarding, wakeboarding, running, rowing, etc. 

My inspiration?
My sister!!  She passed away from a year long battle of cancer while I was in 6th Grade, she was a freshman in High School, leaving me to be an only child. Through her battle she always smiled and tried to make everything positive, which is how I now live my life.  There is just no reason to get upset about the little things especially things you have no control over.  So, keep smiling and remember as bad as you might think you have it… there are probably many who would love to have your life.

What are you looking most forward to this school year?
This is my first year with a blog. How exciting!! It was my summer project, so I look forward to posting much more as the year goes on. I am also looking forward to a very different classroom atmosphere.  Last year I had 20 students… this year 8!  Yep… just 8 students, crazy I know!!  There are so many things I am looking forward to trying/testing out with them.  

What do you need to improve?
I need to work on finishing a task before starting a new one!  I will start a task then get another great idea and go start that task… etc.  It’s enough to make a person go crazy!! That’s the “busy body” in me… always trying to do more than one thing at a time.

What teaching supplies can you *not* live without?

I love my morning cappuccino… maybe too much.  I try to go without, as I know it is not the best for me, but man can I tell the difference when I don’t have it!

Sharpies- I LOVE to write in sharpies… not sure why, but they are great!



  1. Found you through the Blog Hop! It's so much fun to meet other teachers! I also have a SERIOUS problem with starting a million new things at a time. It's exhausting! Hope you have a great year!
