Hello teacher world and welcome to my little blog!  My name is Elyse Doerflinger and I am a first grade teacher at a charter school in Los Angeles, California.  I absolutely love teaching first graders and watching how much they grow over the year. This will be my second year teaching first grade.

I love all things colorful and have a special obsession with all things polka dots.  I am hoping to do a classroom tour soon within the next week or so since school is starting right around the corner.

So that's it for now but I hope you stick around to see more!
