Teacher Week '13: Let's Talk About Me!

Hello everybody!  I am joining up with a big group of bloggers who are participating in a little something called Teacher Week '13 over at Blog Hoppin'.  Throughout this week (if I can get all the posts written) I will be participating in this daily fun!  Click below to see what's on the menu for Teacher Week '13 and link up for yourself :)


So today is Monday which means I need to tell you a little bit about me!  You might already know all these things about me, but here goes...

I am a 30-something Christian, mother, wife, blogger, and teacher.  You could say that my life stays pretty busy at all times.  I love to learn!  I have 3 degrees and 2 endorsements - my Bachelor's, Master's, Rank 1 Certification (Master's +30), Gifted Endorsement, and Math Specialist Endorsement.  I *might* be considering going back for my doctorate, but don't quote me on that!  My husband says I should be done for a while and I somewhat agree.  Keyword: somewhat.

I teach 2nd grade and have also taught a year at the university level which I loved.  This is my 10th year in education.  I blog and create products for TeachersPayTeachers (as I'm sure you know).   I love to exercise, read books, the great outdoors, and watching mindless reality TV {cringe}.  I'm a country girl born and raised in Kentucky.  That means I like to hunt, fish, hike, and I even like to swim in creeks/rivers (hence my Instagram pic last weekend).  Being raised in the country, I've learned about working hard for a living and I wouldn't have it any other way!  Hard work = success.

I have an awesome husband who is loyal and supportive in so many ways.  He puts up with the long hours spent on the computer and doesn't complain too much when the laundry piles up ;)  We have a sweet son who will be 8 years old soon (just typing that made my heart skip a beat).  They grow up fast.  He is amazing in every sense of the word.

I'm super techy and when I say techy, it's a really nice way to say that I am a total nerd.  I love all things technology.  I don't leave home without my iPad.  I have owned every single version of the iPhone from the 1st generation to the iPhone 5.  The same with the iPad.  Every piece of technology we have is Mac and it *might* be a slight addiction.  And I *might* have passed it on to my 8-year-old son who is incredibly nerdy techy as well!  I love posting fun things on my Facebook Fan Page and seriously smile at every single "like" that I get on my page.

Being a blogger has been so much more than just an outlet for me to share ideas and products.  I have met some absolutely amazing fellow bloggers that I can now call my friends.  I have met them {in real life}, talked to them, collaborated with them, and shared laughs and even prayers at times.  I am so very grateful for this platform to share my ideas, tips, and tools, but feel more blessed to have met some of the best friends from around the world through this little ole blog.  Below are a couple pictures of some of my best blogger friends at our last blogger meet-up.  I love these peeps!




That's me in a nutshell.  I love my job.  I love TPT.  I love my hubby and kiddo.  And I love Jesus.  Now you guys click the button below and link up so that I can learn a little bit about you.  See you tomorrow for my classroom reveal!  You will LOVE all the pictures tomorrow!


Have a great Monday night!
