Hello and welcome to Wilson's Wise Whispers, my new teaching blog.  I'm excited to share ideas and experiences with you!  

Here's a little background on me.  I grew up in Chicago, but have lived in beautiful Southwest Virginia since the late 1980s.  I have been married to a great guy for almost 15 years.  We have a twelve year old daughter who is finishing up seventh grade.

I have sixteen years of teaching experience.  I taught sixth grade history for two years, and decided I am more of an elementary person.  Since making the switch to elementary, I've taught fourth grade, third grade, and second grade.  

I'm passionate about developing a great rapport with my students.  I believe building relationships is critical to having a peaceful, supportive classroom.  

I hope you'll enjoy my blog.
