I am joining my Weekend Warriors gals for a little 3-2-1 Teacher Bio fun! Let's get to know each other!
I get bored easily. I am always changing my lessons and activities. Same concepts. Different spin. Keeping it fresh keeps me on my toes, gets me excited, and engaged. If I feel this way about my lessons, then it surely has a great chance to spill over to the students too, right?
I am also crazy organized at work! Everything goes into a binder and/or plastic sleeves. My colleagues call me the "Binder Queen." As much as it is a joke at work, I can almost always find what I need at a moment's notice. If it is not in a binder, it is color coded or labeled for easy identification. No time is wasted! Love, love, love. Now if only I could be this organized at home. You see, I have these three "boys" that I live with that just make it difficult to stay as organized as I do at work.
I love to make learning fun! I really do. Not every lesson is a dazzler, believe me. But if it appears fun to the kids, they take in the knowledge without even knowing it. Whether it is reading on the floor or in a bean bag chair, playing a math game with friends or taking the lesson outside, it is important to make the learning engaging and fun! I try to do this in some way each day! I'm not always successful, but I do give it a valiant effort.
If you follow me on IG or Pinterest, you know I have a love for baseball. My two boys play ball year round and my husband is always on the field coaching. I get involved by driving them to their practices and games, cheering them on and it is a great excuse to buy cute baseball shirts for myself! But my favorite thing to do is to score their games. I learned to keep score when my brother was in little league. Now I get to use my skills while my own boys are on the field.
I love the summer time because I can spend time outside by the water. I really love the ocean, but I truly dislike the sand. I LOVE listening to the waves crash, the smell of the salt water, but keep me away from the sand. It's gross. It's hot. It gets EVERYWHERE! Yuck! Ideally, I would enjoy the ocean while I sit by the hotel pool (book and tropical drink in hand) with the ocean on the horizon.
I can't wait to get to Europe! I would love to start in France and Italy. I got passports for our family years ago, thinking I would be a step closer to making this happen, but not yet. I think my husband and I need to go together first and then bring the kids when they are older and can remember and enjoy the trip. I just want to take in all the history and appreciate the beauty. It. Will. Happen!
Now, it is YOUR turn! Just grab the blank slides below and fill in your answers. Tell us a little about yourself and link up with us! Let's get to know each other a little more!
