Introduction to Cyberspace

Hellllllloooooooooo!!! (I feel as though I am saying this in an echo to the empty audience as of now!)

As I sit here on this dreary Monday working on bulletin boards, classroom management, and lesson plans, I thought.. why not write my first blog post?1 So here I am, in my last week of summer, hoping for tomorrow to be my last day in my room so I can enjoy those last few beautiful, intoxicating, warming rays of sunshine before my little ray of sunshine students come in!

Where to start I asked myself? Well... let's do a little getting to know me :)

My name is Amelia Capotosta, but many call me Aimey (I know, weird spelling!) Of course as a child "Amelia Bedelia" books were all of the rage, and although I was named after my great grandmother, I couldn't help but be annoyed by the endless references to the every clumsy, literal-minded housekeeper! So, "Aimey" was adopted! And I won't even go into how we got the spelling this way (let's just say it's amazing I learned to spell my name in kindergarten..."Amy? Aime? Aimee? Amee? Aimy? AIMEY!"

Anywho, I taught 6th grade Social Studies this past school year, but this year I have moved districts back to my hometown of Wadsworth, Ohio, where I will be teaching 4th grade Language Arts and Social Studies.. and I couldn't be MORE excited!!! {Insert balloons, streamers, and crazy smiley face here!}

I have been married to my FAB hubby for a little over a year and he's quite the hunk if I must say so myself...

What a stud!

Okay, one more wedding picture since I just got all sentimental looking back at them again! :)
My FAV photo from the special day!

We have a lot of wonderful friends from high school and college that we still keep in touch with constantly, and love spending time with them!
Our large, beautiful wedding party and closest friends!

Hubby is a Mechanical Engineer and definitely the ying to my yang (corny, corny, I know) but it's true! I'm the love to read, book worm, history loving teacher, and he's the math and science loving engineer... hopefully our kids will be covered with homework help one day ;) 

Other things about me: I am a Varsity Volleyball coach at the school I taught at last year. Although it keeps me busy, I love it! I also coach JO (travel) volleyball in the spring. Needless to say, although hubby was a college basketball player, he's learning to love the sport of volleyball! 

I love to run and workout, AND eat lots of unhealthy food like chocolate and chips.. oxymoron, I know! I am incredibly bubbly and smiley! I talk fast, often, and loud. My students last year would say that "Mrs. Capotosta must drink a lot of adrenaline every morning!" I don't like coffee, tea, or really anything of the sort. I can go for the occasional Starbucks specialty cup, but for caffeine, Diet Coke is my habit of choice! (Yes, I'm one of those... COCA-COLA PLEASE, no Pepsi!)

In my free time I enjoy designing wedding invitations, programs, etc, reading OF COURSE, and relaxing with the hubs:)

I HEART all the wonderful teaching ideas out there in the blog world, and I CANNOT WAIT to share my ideas and learn from all of you wonderful fellow educators on here! 

Here's to a great year and a fun blog! :) Special shout out to Christina Wagers over at for being my inspirational reading this past school year, and the reason I wanted to start a blog! Thanks for being so fantabulous Christina! :)
