I'm linking up with Stephanie from Falling into First today for one of my favorite types of linky parties! I LOVE getting to know more about my favorite teacher bloggers -- beyond the blog and the classroom! This is such a fun way to meet some fun, new teachers!
A little about me...I have been married to my high school sweetheart, John, for a little over 12 years. We have two children -- our son, Trey, is going into second grade and our daughter, Rowan, will be starting Kindergarten in a few weeks! We live in Southwest Michigan, just a few miles from Lake Michigan. I am entering my 12th year of teaching -- my 11th in Kindergarten!
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
Jesus. My family and friends. Teaching. Waking up in time to see the sun rise. Ice cream. The beach. Travel. Polka dots. EOS lip balm. Scented markers. Green, navy blue, and gray. Reality TV. Jack Johnson's music. Laughing.
IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
Oh my. I really don't know! Teaching is the PERFECT job for me! I would probably be a social worker or something similar. A job where I could build relationships!
Optimistic, caring, grateful.
Sure! I'd LOVE to tie your shoes for the 20th time today!
I love music!! I love singing along and dancing with my friends! I'd invite Jack Johnson (or maybe Phillip Phillips) to come play for my party!
Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?
"Do Likewise" (just a thought that I live by...)
Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
I want the superpower where my fridge and pantry never go empty, but I NEVER have to go to the grocery store!
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?
I love words and quotes, so this is hard to choose. A couple of my favorites are:
"A smile is the prettiest thing you can wear."
"Let all that you do be done in love." -1 Corinthians 16:14
Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I don't know! Maybe something by Colbie Caillat or Natasha Bedingfield.
Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
Morning, morning, morning! I set my alarm to wake up before the rest of my family because the quiet of the early morning is my very favorite part of the day! I'm completely worthless after 9 PM. Ha!
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?
I love my Brain Boost sets. I created them last summer and they became a favorite part of my week with my students last year!
I LOVE the dentist -- especially the part where they pick the plaque off my teeth! That part of my appointment never lasts long enough and I wish I could go once a week! I am obsessed with flossing and keep dental floss everywhere.
This was so fun! Pop on over to Stephanie's blog to meet some other teachers!!
