Welcome to Daisies and Chalk!
Daisies and Chalk is my living portfolio. It is a collection of letters written to myself (and you!) about all things teaching. These are the things I wonder about, reflect upon, learn about, and more.
In my free time, I have been writing a book titled "The Path to Passionate Teaching." It is currently in binder format and has been used by many of my closest friends. Become part of Passionate Teaching family each month by joining our challenges.
Who am I?
My name is Misty Judd. I am an elementary teacher in Illinois. I have taught grades 3-6 and am currently teaching 6th grade ELA. I began teaching in 1997 as a private kindergarten teacher. I was not licensed but I loved working with the students but kinder was not where my heart was. I left teaching, had my children, and then went back to school to fulfill my dream of teaching middle elementary. In 2007, I went back into the classroom as a fully licensed teacher! I am so incredibly blessed to have fulfilled my dream!
Faith, Family, and Education are my 3 favorite things and you'll read a lot about them on this site.
I am blessed to be married to my best friend and the mama of our 5 children (2 girls and 3 boys). To add to our joy, we now have 2 amazing sons-in-law.
Family Tradition: the backwards photo. Why? Because we all hate our photo being taken.
