I am excited to be linky up with Stephanie from Falling into First for her Meet the Teacher Blogger linky party.
Here's a little bit about me:
I married my college sweetheart. We just celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. We have two amazing boys together. I will be starting my 16th year of teaching in Southern California. I have taught first, second and fourth grade. My heart is in second! I love my teaching partner and sweet little K-12 span school. I wouldn't change a thing.
Q: These are a few of my favorite things...
watching my boys play baseball and rooting for the Dodgers & Cubs, massages, manicures and pedicures and of course shopping at Target!
Q: If you weren't a teacher, what would you want to be?
Child advocate lawyer
Q: Three little words that describe you.
truthful, sarcastic, dedicated
Q: Finish this sentence, "_______________, said no teacher EVER!!"
I really love grading essays on the weekend, said no teacher EVER!
Q: It's your birthday and you can invite anyone (dead or alive) to the party. Who are you inviting?
My husband and kids!
Q: If someone wrote a book about your life, what would be the title?
Hawaiian Family Fun
Q: You get to pick one superpower. What is it?
To blink and make things appear or disappear!
Q: What is your favorite quote or saying?

Q: If you HAD to sing one song on American Idol, what would it be?
I sing but only in the car when I am by myself. I can't carry a tune to save my life
Q: Are you a morning person or a night owl?
MORNING PERSON! I can't sleep in even if I try. Once I'm awake, that's it! And I fall asleep on the couch every night watching TV. I never get to finish a program. Thank goodness for my DVR.
Q: What is your favorite resource that you've created in your TPT shop?
My MATH and LANGUAGE Interactive Notebooks
I love having all the evidence of learning in one place, aligned to the Common Core State Standards!
My ELA and MATH Task Cards
These were a game changer in my classroom. My kids love reviewing their skills now!
Q: Share something we might not know about you!
I have always wanted to go sky diving. Then I got married and had children. I had to be responsible. So, I went indoor sky diving instead! LOVED IT! No need to jump out of a plane now.
Tag you're it! Now it's your turn to head on over to Stephanie's blog, grab the buttons and questions and share a little about yourself too!
