Let's Talk About Me! Meet the Teacher

Today I spent the entire day sorting through my new classroom and oh my goodness I am so overwhelmed! I even had to stop for a second coffee on my way home... Anyway, I'm linking up this week (I'm really going to try to make all 5 days!) for Teacher Week!

1. This is me and my husband. We have been together since we were 14 years old! We got married 5 years ago :)

2. We do not have any kids (yet) but my furry children are my life! We have 2 kitties, Vinny and Harvey, and a French Bulldog puppy, Lola! She is a handful (and then some!!). 

3. We bought a house last summer and have spent the last year fixing it up. It's been a ton of work, but so worth it to have something of our own! 
It's still a work in progress :)

4. My husband and I really love to travel! 
This was taken in Skagway, Alaska, last summer! We have been lucky enough to travel to Alaska 2 times, each time over an anniversary!

5. I am obsessed with Disney World! We are going to Disney on Wednesday for one last hurrah before school starts! We even got engaged in Disney :)

6. I have taught 3 grades in my 5 years in the classroom - K, 1, and 2! This year I am teaching first grade again at a new school. It's in the same district. I am very excited to return to grade 1! 

7. Some people relax at the beach or with a book, but I am MOST relaxed when I am baking or creating for my classroom :) I love it! I started creating for TpT about 2 years ago and I love to create resources for my classroom and for others. 

8. I love to shop. I consider myself to be fairly thrifty and I don't spend a lot of money on expensive clothes/jewelry/shoes, but my weakness lies with Coach! 

9. I have a TOUCH of OCD. I need my groceries organized, my classroom organized, closet color coordinated... the list goes on. 
10. My nana and great aunt are identical twins. I am an only child and an only grandchild, so I'm quite spoiled :o) 

Go link up! 

I will be offering a flash freebie later on today on Facebook - make sure you "like" me over there to find out what it is! It's technology related :)


  1. Hi! I found your blog through Blog Hoppin’ Teacher Week! The summer went too fast and I cannot believe it is that time of year again!

    I had a cat growing up that looked just like one of yours. His name was Pete...and now every time I read Pete the Cat I think of him :o)
