Meet the Teacher {LINKY}

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

I'm joining my very first Linky Party!  I've joined Stephanie at Falling Into First as I share a little bit about me and learn a whole lot about my fellow bloggers.  How fun!

A little bit about me.  I live in sunny San Diego, California.  I have two daughters, one in college and one in high school, two Pembroke Welsh Corgis and one great husband.  This year I will be turning the big 5-0.  Yikes!  

I sort of stumbled into teaching and discovered that it perfectly suits me.  I love seeing the lightbulb come on and the smile spread across the face of a child who has been struggling to master something.  It is THE MOST rewarding job I could every imagine.  I love going to work each day and strive to make each day fun for my little kindergartners.


 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

I love colored Sharpies! (Weird, I know, but I love them)

I also love my CriCut machine.  
I have a ton of fonts and I love to cut out things for my bulletin boards.  

I live in Flip Flops so they are on the top of my favorites list!  
Good thing I live in Southern California!  




 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
I would do something working with animals.  I would love to work at the World Famous San Diego Zoo. 



THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.

Smart.  Loyal.  Generous 



FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"

"I'd really love to fill out more paperwork...said no teacher EVER!!"
 

IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?

I think I would have to have Green Day come and play for me.   
They are my all time favorite band!  

IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?

Making a Difference- One Kid at a Time


 YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
 I have to go with teleportation because then I could visit anywhere in the world at a moment's notice.  Hawaii for the weekend?  Paris for dinner?  How cool would that be?  Think of the amount of minutes each day you would gain by not having travel time.  It seems like I always need 20 more minutes at work to get everything done- by teleporting I would gain that!  Amazing! 

 WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?


 IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

 Umm, that would NEVER happen!  I can't carry a tune- seriously- I can't!
The good news is that my kindergartners don't mind and will even sing the songs off key with me.  I love those little guys!

 
 ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

I'm most definitely a MORNING person!  I love getting up with the sun (no matter what time I go to sleep) and having a cup of coffee with my dogs by my side and everyone else in the house still asleep.  Can you say heaven?  

 
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

I would have to say that I love my Logic Puzzles the best.  I keep them in my math tubs and the kids love to do them.


 WHAT'S SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?


I am afraid of spiders.  It's not a little thing...it's an actual phobia!  


Now it's your turn.  Head on over to link up!

  1. I would so love to be able to get up earlier than my kids, but I like to stay up way too late! I bet it is beautiful in Southern CA every day. I went there on my honeymoon and enjoyed it! One day I will go back and visit!
