Thank you so much, Michele Yanong from Multiage Moments, for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award (and sorry that I didn't see this until now! I was busy away on a trip with the youth group from my church).

I get so excited when I find another multiage ELL/Bilingual/Dual language teacher like me! It feels great to know I'm not alone :) Make sure you check out her blog - she loves owls too! I just can't get enough of her adorable ideas.

Seven Random Facts About Me
 1. Yesterday was my birthday! I chose to spend it making adorable owl desk nameplates for my students using my new Cameo Silhouette that my husband gave me :)

2. I am a huge animal lover. I have had every pet imaginable, from a 2 1/2 foot long Red Bearded Dragon and a 2 foot long Blue Tongued Skink (both lizards) to hedgehogs and bunnies.Right now we have a rabbit named Lucy and she is my sweetie!

3. I love to make jewelry when I am not teaching or making adorable things for my classroom. I have my own 'business' (really a shop on Etsy and a booth at craft fairs) selling my jewelry. I call it Nehring's Earrings because, let's face it, elementary school teachers love to rhyme! 

4. Even though I'm pretty sure I was not meant to be a high school teacher, I LOVE helping to lead my church's senior high youth group. The kids are amazing and we have soooooo much fun at youth group or on fun trips. 

5. Mint chocolate chip ice cream is my favorite food...I'm not even ashamed!

6. My husband and I just bought our first house in April. I am starting to feel so grown up! 

7. I am the oldest of 3 girls, but my Dad got married this past New Year's Eve so now I'm the oldest of 4 girls and two boys! We have a huge, wonderful family! 

And my nominees are....(drum roll please!)

Alrighty, well I think that's all for now. I need to go play with my Cameo Silhouette some more and then head into my classroom - school starts on the 15th! Have a lovely day!


  1. Oh my gosh! You are so crafty! LOVE the jewelry..that little nest and bird necklace is adorable!! :)


  2. I am glad someone recommended your Blog to me! I am now your newest follower and a Mulit-age teacher too! Stop by anytime!!! SMILES!

  3. Hi ,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
