I love reading other blogs and getting to know the teachers behind them…and since I am fairly new to this whole bloggin’ thing I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to let y’all know a little about myself. So I am linking up with the gals over at The Teaching Tribune for Monday Meet Up.
I teach…I started out in 5th, moved to Jr. High Language arts, took 8 years off to raise babies, I then was subbing to ease back into teaching…for 6 years. Honestly, I wasn’t sure I wanted to teach full time again, my first priority was my family. Then last year I was offered a position I couldn’t pass up. So now I teach Kindergarten at a little rural school near my country home and I love every minute of it. I am so glad I said yes!
I have…a wonderful family and am truly blessed! This year we will have a college student and 2 high schoolers, which makes me realize I am getting old!!
I watch…my boys are big time into racing and I love watching them. We travel 2-3 weekends a month so that they can race Wing Outlaw Karts. It is a little nerve racking with them going top speeds of 80 mph. But, they love it and we get lots of family time together at the track. I don’t often watch TV, but I enjoy the series The Good Wife. I didn’t start until the 3rd season. However, all the beginning seasons are now on Hulu so my oldest son and I are going to watch seasons 1 & 2 this summer.
I listen…I love country music. I have it on while I’m in the shower, getting ready, driving in my car, working after hours in my classroom. You get the picture. If I’m not listing to country, the boys, my husband included, usually have some kind of racing or sports on the TV. So, when I am working on my computer or blog
stalking reading I am listening to
them in the background.
I read…I am a self proclaimed book junkie. Although, it is almost always a professional development, or motivational type book. I love John Maxwell, he is one of my favorites. This summer I am planning on reading 100 Minutes, Next Steps in Guided Reading and Literacy Work Stations.
I do…love Starbucks! My favorite drinks are a White Mocha Frappuccino Light or a Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher. I have a serious problem. I gave up caffeine for a 30 day detox in January and I had to find a new drink, Passion Tea unsweetened, so I could still go to Starbucks, and I always pay with my phone app because I have to earn my stars!
I would love to hear your thoughts and comments and go link up so we can learn more about you too!
