Meet the Teacher Blogger Linky

Hi there!  I'm linking up with Stephanie from Falling into First for her Meet the Teacher Blogger linky.
A little about me:  I've taught first and second grade for the past nine years.  I'm originally from Massachusetts/Connecticut but moved to Houston, Texas about five years ago now because of my husbands job.  We recently bought a house about 45 minutes north of Houston and moved in a couple of weeks ago. Because of the move and the fact that I am pregnant with our first child (due in October), I'm taking the upcoming year off from teaching.  After that, I hope to get a job in curriculum/instruction or as a reading specialist since I obtained my master's degree in this area about a year ago.
This is my husband Anthony and I on our honeymoon in Santorini, Greece.  We got married there two years ago.
 My current princess, Tink.
This is our new house...it's taking all my time and making me a bad blogger!
And our future princess, Gracie, coming in October!



Q: THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
Mac Book Air.  iPhone.  Colored Pens.  Country Music.  Target.  Purple.  Food Network.  Macaroni and Cheese.  Mozzarella Sticks.  Cheeseburgers.  Doritos.  Ice Cream.  Milkshakes.  (Okay, these foods are here because I haven't been able to eat any dairy while pregnant and so I desperately want them!)

Q:  IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
A lawyer.  I like to argue and debate (and win)!  But, I don't think I could deal with any more schooling.

Q: THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Determined.  Stubborn.  Serious.

Q: FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"
My work is all finished!

Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?
Tim McGraw.  I LOVE him.

Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?
Changes.

 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
The ability to make things appear immediately.  I am spoiled by Amazon Prime's 2 day delivery but even that isn't fast enough sometimes.  And if what I need isn't available on Prime, it's like the end of the world...a whole week for delivery?!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 
I have no idea...I am a HORRIBLE singer so I never would...just thinking about it is giving me anxiety!

 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
I've always been a morning person, up before 5, first one at work in the morning.  BUT since being pregnant and not working, I have a hard time getting myself even showered by 9 so hopefully I snap out of that soon! (Because I am not a night owl at all.  In bed by ten at the latest.)

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?
My Sophisticated Synonyms pack.  The kids really love taking the words out of the pockets and using them in their writing.  Very interactive.

Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 
I hate vegetables and basically do not eat them.  Meanwhile my husband is a vegetarian.  Makes for complications at meal times!  Everyone always said wait until you are pregnant, you are going to have to eat vegetables...but it turns out I've been super sick the whole time and am allowed to eat whatever I can keep down...which isn't vegetables, so in a way I lucked out.  I know I need to change this though...

Thanks for reading!  Head over to Falling into First to link up!

  2. I love your answer to the career question, because mine was the same! I am in grad school right now working on a masters in literacy. Enjoy you sweet baby! Even if you're sick now, you'll forget about that.

  3. Love the name Gracie! I would invite Tim McGraw too! Love him. I think it is hilarious that you don't like veggies, yet your hubby is a vegetarian. I'd like to see your table at dinner time. Enjoy your new home and your soon to be born.
