Meet the Teacher


Cara, over at First Grade Parade is having a Blog Party so that teachers can find other teacher blogs that we will L.O.V.E.  I can’t wait to learn from and use the ideas from all of these other great teacher.


A little bit about me:

That’s me on the left in the blue!  I have been teaching four years.  I started out in 5th grade and then moved to 6th {Yuck!}  Last year I taught Kindergarten and thought I had died and gone to heaven, until I moved to first grade… AAAHHMMMAAAZZZIIINNGGGG the difference a year makes.  I love love love first grade!

DSCN1419 I am getting married to this super cute guy this summer and yall I CAN NOT wait!  We have been together foreva and I love him.




{Q & A}

Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t a teacher?
A:  I would definitely go back to school, be an intern for Martha Stewart, and make LOTS of money doing all things crafty!
Q: What are your hobbies?
A:  I coach softball and volleyball. I also help my good friend on the weekends doing flowers for weddings.  Along with teaching I guess you could say that all of my “hobbies” are jobs!  lol I love to read but it consumes me until I get the book finished, so reading is usually a summer only hobby.                                                                   
Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A:  Im that kid that “Always wanted to be a teacher.”  I used to doodle newsletters. I never would have thought at 8 years old I could make a Miss Hill’s Highlights on the computer!                     Q: What are your guilty pleasures?
A: Bubble Pop App on my phone, sleeping for as long as I can whenever I get the chance, oreos and milk, and TJMaxx              Q: What is your biggest fear?!
A: Spiders, snakes, and crunchy bugs.  ew!

Sadness is also really scary for me!

Q: When you’re on vacation, where do you like to go?
A: Beach Bound!  Being from Bama it is just so close and I HATE being cold.  I never want to go anywhere cold. Ever.

Q: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
A:  Have confidence.  Nobody likes somebody who’s cocky, but nobody likes the whiner either.  I am still working on the no whining, but hopefully I will get there one day.

Q: What do you value most in others?
A:  Realness.  Please Stop. The. Fakeness.

Q: If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass down to your kids, what would it be?
A: No kids yet, I’m gonna try to perfect some of my personality traits before kids!  Hopefully, I will pass down the importance of knowing Jesus and being a good Southern Lady!    
Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world….living or dead…who would it be?
A:  The girls from Southern Wedding Magazine, Dixie Carter, and Emily Post! Southern and Classy at its best!  Of course we would all drink sweet tea from a mason jar and wear a wide brim hat with a down right cute sundress!

Now tell us one random thing about yourself:

My claim to fame is that when I was little I won a gold medal for LEvel 4 State Gymnastics on Beam, two years in a row!  RaNdOM!

I'm visiting from The First Grade Parade meet the teacher, hi! First of all, congrats on getting married! When I started out I was a coach, too. Now I'm only a teacher. Fun Q&A. Nice to meet you!

What is your wedding going to be like? How excited are you?! Married life is the best!!!! :)
I'm glad I found your blog. I'm a big fan of firstie teachers!

I also strongly dislike the cold. I grew up in SOUTHERN Mississippi, but when I got married, we moved to Tennessee (the cold part). Girl- they have SNOW up here. Not like a little, once every few years kind of thing. Like we've missed 11 days because of snow! Craziness! I'm SO ready for the beach! I was pretty excited about the Groundhog's prediction for an early spring! Hope it's true. :)

Come visit my blog:

I can not believe you've changed grades every year you've taught! That must have been crazy!
