Hello teacher friends and readers!
My name is Allyson Sutton and I am a 3rd year teacher at a charter school in North Carolina. I became and TPT seller in October and decided this week to join the blogging world! Here is a little about me!
*I attended Meredith College in Raleigh NC - Go Angels! I received my BS in Child Development as well as my K-6 teaching license. I was also a NC Teaching Fellow, so I had so many wonderful experiences to add to my college experience.
*When applying for teaching jobs, I applied to one school, had one 2 interviews at that school, landed the job two days after graduation and am now working on my 3rd year!
*I teach 2nd grade - the perfect grade level and I love it!
*I am such an organized person! One of my co-workers recently called me the "Queen of Organization". I just can't stand clutter and things not having a place. I hope to share some of the things I do in my classroom to help stay organized, so maybe I can help you too!

The reason for the name of my blog - My alma mater, Meredith College, recently began a new ad campaign with the motto "Going Strong". As an all-women's college, Meredith pushes its students to be confident and educated leaders in their field. So as an alumna of this great institution, I couldn't think of a better way to salute a place that made me the woman and teacher that I am today. I also want to instill this confidence and leadership in my students on a daily basis, so, we are "Going Strong in 2nd Grade"!
