Meet the Teacher

I am linking up with Stephanie at Falling into First for Meet the Teacher!
A little about me ...
My husband, Josh, and I celebrated our 11th anniversary this summer.



We have 2 nieces and 5 nephews.

We are foster parents and are anxiously awaiting our first placement!  Here's a peek into the room we have ready for a little girl who needs a home.


THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

Mr. Sketch markers.  Yellow Box sandals.  York Peppermint Patties.  Barq's Root Beer.  My Jesus Calling devotional.  My owl Tervis tumbler.  Dunkin' Donuts coffee.


 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
Something creative, but not sure what it would be.


THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.

Loyal.  Sensitive.  Loving.

FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"

"I'd really love to grade papers all 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?

Karen Kingsbury
 Dr. John MacArthur
George Washington
Abraham Lincoln

 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
 
 I have a 33 mile one way drive, so I wish I had a button in my car to drive itself so I could sleep!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

"Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I’ve been saved, I’ve been changed, I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing" 
 

Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

 "Hello, My Name Is" by Matthew West

 
 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

Much of my creativity comes at night, but I have to have a lot of sleep to be able to function the next day!  

 
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

I love my money unit!  When it's time for money, I can print and go!  I have sets of money cards and money amounts and my children rock out counting money with these!  I added extra pages in the spring.  When I first made this unit, it was near St. Patrick's Day, but then the following year we started school earlier and money was in February!  I kept the St. Patty's Day theme, but added a whole set of pages and activities for any time of the year!

Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 

 I am the fourth generation teacher in my family.  My mom is near the end of her teaching career (high school Spanish).  My granddad was an elementary teacher and principal.  He was asked to be a high school principal and he turned it down!  My great-grandmother taught in a one-room schoolhouse beginning in 1919 in Northeastern Ohio.

  2. York Peppermint Patties are heavenly, especially broken up over some vanilla ice cream.

    Our daughter was adopted, and I hope you get a placement soon. I did not know you were fostering. You will be a wonderful mom. The room is beautiful!
