Meet the Teacher!

I'm linking up with my good friend Stephanie for a "Meet the Teacher" linky! It's so much fun to learn a little more about each other!
 Let's start with a little bio...
I am married to the most wonderful husband! Josh and I went to high school together but were never really close. We reconnected in college and became close friends. He kept on wanting it to be more than friends...I wasn't ready yet! 4 years later we started dating and the rest is history!
We have a 6 {6!!! I can't believe it!!} year old- Ella and a 3 1/2 {that half is very important!} year old- Luke. They are the greatest gift from God! Ella is spunky and opinionated and will be a very good leader one day. Luke is charming and hard headed- just like his daddy!

This will be my 6th year teaching. They have all been in Pre-K and Kinder. I love my little babies! I took a year off to stay home when we had Luke and couldn't stand to be away from the classroom anymore!

 Q: These are a few of my favorite things…
new school supplies, labels, hugs from my little boy in the morning when he sneaks into bed, coffee with sugar and half and half, craft supplies, the colors pink, orange, and teal. Breakfast pizza, texts from my husband during the day, west Texas sunsets, reading anything!
Q: If you weren’t a teacher, what would you want to be?

I think a graphic designer? I used to think I wanted to be an Interior Designer...I even changed my major for a year and a half. Then I had an internship and realized it was all office work! Blech!!
Q: Three little words that describe you.
optimistic, caring, creative

Q: Finish this sentence, “___________________, said no teacher EVER!!”

Please touch me with those snotty fingers! I love it when you do that!!

Q: It’s your birthday and you can invite anyone {dead or alive} to the party. Who are you inviting?

Oprah. She's so inspirational and has helped so many people! It would be great to sit down and talk to her. 

Q: If someone wrote a book about your life, what would be the title?

Adventures with Mommy!

Q: You get to pick one superpower. What is it?

magic-wand cleaning-thing! I actually don't mind cleaning...but I hate the TIME it takes to do it! 

Q: What’s your favorite quote or saying?

SO SO many! I love quotes. You can see my family pin board HERE and my teaching pin board HERE
Love your family. Spend time, be kind & serve one another. Make no room for regrets. Tomorrow is not promised & today is short.Unknown

Q: If you HAD to sing one song on American Idol, what would it be? 

Probably something old school! Some good 'ol Dixie Chicks {Earl, anyone?!}

Q: Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Definitely morning! I can't stay awake past midnight. And that's only on a special occasion! lol! I love the quiet time with coffee in the morning before the house is awake. You can't get any better than that!

Q: What’s your favorite resource that you’ve created in your TPT shop?

I love this Alphabet Interactive Notebook pack! I've used it the past few years and my kiddos adore theirs! 

Q: Share something we might not know about you!

I had scarlet fever when I was in college. You thought it only happened like, in the 1900's? Well, leave it to me! It was horrible! It was mostly my fault because I wasn't taking very good care of myself but I am hoping to never experience that again!

Now hop over to Stephanie's blog and read about some more of your favorite teacher bloggers!!
