Monday Meet Me

I have been out of commission for a few days with a cold. I am feeling so much better, but getting a cold the first week of summer vacation was no fun.

First, I want to congratulate Cindy and Mel for winning our Starbucks gift cards. I hope you will have time this summer to sit back, relax, and enjoy a refreshing Starbucks beverage.

More good news...

I am linking up with The Teaching Tribune again this week. Yay! So, let's get to know one another better :)

I Teach: This will be my 21st year teaching. I have taught first through sixth grade and I have enjoyed each grade, but I will admit that third grade has been my all time favorite. This coming school year,  I will be teaching 4th grade and am so excited my brain keeps coming up with new ideas to try.

I Have: Two golden retrievers (Lefty and LuLu) and a terrier mix (Little Guy). They are one of the biggest loves of my life. My three rescue house rabbits are hilarious - Molly is the boss lady, Harley (aka Buddha) if you saw her you would understand, and Quinn (sweetie).

I Watch: When I am working on school work, blogging, or creating I am usually catching up on my favorite TV shows. I enjoy the BBC channel and Masterpiece PBS (Downton Abbey and Mr. Selfridge).

I Listen: I was in my early teens during the 80's so I am completely nostalgic about that decade of music. Now that I am older I enjoy all types/genres of music. It totally depends on the mood I am in.

I Read: I love, love, love, historical fiction. Some of my favorites have been The Thirteenth Tale, The Shadow of the Wind, and Outlander. One of my passions is children's literature. I have discovered over the years that a good book can generate thinking, compassion, and creativity so much better than a lecture.

I Do: What I love- teaching. Blogging has allowed me to learn, share, and continue to grow in my profession. While creating products has given me a creative outlet.

Hope to get to know you a little better too.
