Tell Me More!

I'm linking up with Janis over at Grade Three is the Place for Me for her Newbie Blog Hop and Amy at Step into 2nd Grade I started over Spring Break just over 4 months ago. I've enjoyed every minute.

What state do I live in? The Sunshine State (Florida)
What is my current teaching position? I am looping to 2nd grade!
What is my teaching experience? I have taught for 10 years,  K-2
When did I start my blog? My first official post was on March 25, 2012
What would my blogging tip be? I would have to definitely agree with everyone that the word verification has got to go! I think it's also important to have a blog that's reader friendly.( Text broken into smaller chunks, not a lot of clutter, large print, normal font, no music, etc)

Don't feel like you have to read them all! Just pick a few!

1. I am a little obsessive compulsive. For example, I check my email, facebook, blogs, websites, and my regular mail all the time. 

2. I started jogging again. I jogged three miles today . We have a group of teachers doing a 5K in November.

3. I don’t like watching movies more than once. I also rarely listen to a full song before I change the station in my car or song on my ipod. 

4. When I am with children I am very happy. If I am not teaching then I am probably babysitting or hanging out with my niece and nephew.

5. I love taking pictures! It's my new hobby.

6. I'm addicted to Pinterest and just love TPT!

7. My favorite stores are Target, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels. Plus I usually get to use coupons which excite me. 

8. Decorating for every holiday is really fun for me. I have a wreath or door hanger for each holiday/season and a doormat that matches. 

9. Crafts are so much fun so I've really enjoyed Monday Made Its with Tara.

10. I love perfume. 

11.I don’t like to change my jewelry so I have a few nice pieces that I never take off. I sleep, swim, etc in my earrings, watch, two rings, and necklace. 

12. My favorite food is Mexican. I love white cheese dip. I do not eat any SEAFOOD. The smell makes me sick. 

13. I don’t like flying but I get over it so I can travel. I also have a fear of thunderstorms and snakes. 
14. I LOVE pedicures. I get a pedicure once a month to show off my toe rings that I have worn for the past 10 years. I also wear open toed shoes every chance I get. 

15. I graduated college in two years.

16. Florida,Alabama, Los Angeles and Toronto are all places that I have lived. 

17. I love decorating my classroom . Thanks Schoolgirl Style for your inspiration!

18. I don’t like throwing away things that I might be able to use one day. I kinda hoard school supplies in my classroom closet. 

19. If it was appropriate, I would wear flip flops everyday!

20. I love to floss my teeth. Sometimes I do it more than once a day. 

21. I like getting facials and massages.

22.  I am a night person. I love to sleep in. I could sleep until 12.

23. I obsessed  POLKA DOTS, FONT, and CLIP ART!

24. I have three sisters and three brothers.

25. The Bachelorette, The Bachelor, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit are my favorite T.V. shows

  9. Way to go with the jogging and 5K coming up! I too recently started jogging, AGAIN.

    Second Grade Sparkle

  12. WOW! Graduated college in two years...you are amazing!!!

    Glad that I could connect with you through the blog hop.

    One Class, One Sound

  13. I'm sorry that you can't wear flip flops every day. I have an awesome principal who doesn't mind that we wear flip flops to school. And that's amazing that you finished college in 2 years. I finished in 5, partly because I changed my major 4 times (biology/ pre-med, early childhood education, sociology, and then back to education).

  14. I am the same way about songs on the radio!! I have always felt I'm so weird to do that. It drives my family crazy and I really do try to not change the music when others are in the car with me!! :)


  15. I can easily be sucked into the world of reality T.V. I can't really remember what I watched before reality T.V..

  16. Great blog I can't imagine having almost 600 followers. I'm your newest follower. if you get a chance please visit my blog @ Calling Plays in 2nd Grade.

  17. Hmm...one thing? I LOVE to color code EVERYTHING! From the items in my closet to everything in my classroom! I'm obsessed!

    A is for Apple B is for Blog

  18. I love polka dots, pedicures, massages and watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette too! How exciting that you're looping this year!

    Would love if you would stop by my blog-I have a FREEBIE for second grade math journals!
