About Me

My photo
Above all, I am a Christian. I am blessed to say that I am currently a Third Grade teacher, but in the past I taught K, 1st, and Computer Lab. Beyond the classroom, I love my family, my boyfriend, and my God (in no particular order. ;) )

Questions for me to answer :)

  1. What is your must-have teacher tool? I love my projector. I don't have a SmartBoard, but I {love} my projector, and so do my students.
  2. What is your favorite age to teach? I have had the pleasure of teaching all of the grades in Elementary School, and I adore third grade.
  3. If you had to eat one food/dish every day for the next year, what would it be? I could eat at ChikFilA every day of the week.

  5. What is your favorite place to buy teacher clothes? My favorite store ever, Target!
  6. Chevron or polka dots? Both, please! ;)
  7. What is your best teaching-related memory? The day one of my students told me he liked school. I spent several months working with him, and in first grade he already decided he wasn't "good" at school. :( Luckily, that changed.
  8. What is the funniest thing a student has said to you? Oh gosh! That changes every single day. One K student told me my shirt was beautiful every time I saw him, which was once a week. That always seemed to make me giggle.
  9. What is your favorite organizational tool (teaching-related or not)? My teacher planner!
  10. If you could talk to yourself before you started teaching, what would you tell yourself? You got this! Just get ready for the paper work.

11 Random Facts:

1. I {love} to travel. I have been out of the country 4 times so far, and would love to go again.
2. Speaking of traveling, I have climbed an active volcano on one of those trips. Exciting stuff!
3. I am a very girly girl, but I hate doing my hair and painting my nails.

5. I'm an introvert. {Most of the time.}
6. I have only had one car my whole driving life. I <3 my 13 year old Honda!
7. I hate going to the doctor, except for the Dentist. I love to get my teeth cleaned! Weird. I know!
8. I don't know how to ride a bike or blow a bubble from bubble gum. I know. I was deprived of these "normal" childhood things. I guess I was too busy playing with my Barbies, and I don't really like gum.
9. My favorite place in the whole world is Walt Disney World. I would live there if I could.
10. I own a ferret. Her name is Marley, and she is adorable.
