Periscope and Doggies!!!!

So this week has been amazing!!! I saw about Periscope on Instagram and jumped on and my first Periscope I watched was Angie from Lucky Little Learners and Ashley from Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd and thought it was amazing!! I learned so much about Periscope from them and they started some amazing #tribes!!!

 
They said that one thing you have to do is find your group of people or your tribe. That way you can all share ideas and really feed off one another. Well there are so many tribes now from grade level to even what state you work in. I saw this posted on The Krafty Teacher's Instagram and I agree with it 100%.
 
I love how teaching is a profession where people support one another and we all become a family. I have learned so much from other teachers that you just don't learn at college.
 
Sooooo I had to introduce myself to everyone because I love how Periscope lets you put a face to a name so I wanted to put my face out there. I was sooooooooooooooooooooooooo nervous!!! I was dreading it actually, but I wrote in a comment that I would do it yesterday afternoon and told a friend I would. They made sure I did it! I am so glad I did it!!! I admitted just like many teachers have been through the introductions that I do not like to talk in front of my own peers. Put me in a room of kids and I am fine. It's amazing though all the support everyone was giving me while I was doing the broadcast.
 
 
For my first broadcast I had 88 live viewers and 36 replays! I couldn't believe it!! I also got 3,577 hearts!!!!! You all are amazing and I can't wait to do more, especially of my NEW classroom!!!
 
Side note: I am moving from Jacksonville, NC to Raleigh, NC!! So excited on my new job and I will still be teaching 2nd grade again!!!
 
The only thing that was hard with the broadcast was reading all the comments!! I totally missed seeing Lindsey from Thriving In Third (@MissJohnstonsJourney) who created my blog!!!!   I wish I saw her comment because then I would have done a HUGE shout out for her!!
 It's amazing how exciting it is when people you follow all the time watch and follow you! They are like celebrities. I am loving this app and like everyone has been saying I am ADDICTED!! Maybe it will make me not so nervous and shy, and really open up some opportunities for me!
 
During my Introduction Broadcast I shared 3 facts about myself, one being that my family has 2 dogs and I just have to share pictures because I miss them so much when I am in NC since they are in NY.

 Yesterday they were busy laying out in the grass while my mom and I did a little gardening. Today they got to cool off in their "in ground pool"!!! They love to just lay in the water on hot summer days.
 And I just had to end this blog post with the cutest picture EVER!!
She likes to hold the tennis ball by the fuzz with her teeth! Isn't that adorable!!!
 
Thank you everyone for all your support and follow me on Periscope so you don't miss out on any of my future live broadcasts! And I will follow all my followers!!
