Meet The Teacher Blogger~ A linky party!

Today I am joining in Falling Into First's linky party!This is such a fun way for everyone to get to know each other!!
Here are some tidbits about me...


I am a special education teacher in upstate NY. This is my 5th year teaching 3rd, 4th and 5th grade and my 18th year teaching special education.  It is certainly challenging, but I can't imagine doing anything else!
This has been the best summer EVER. To kick off the summer my husband surprised me by whisking me off to Maui to celebrate my 40th birthday!
It was AMAZING!!! We went to a luau, took a helicopter ride over the island, explored and more. The views are soooo gorgeous! 
This is the black sand beach in Maui! The black sand is soft, but more coarse than typical beach sand. It was so cool to see it!

The rest of this summer has been all about hanging with the family and unpacking my classroom. My classroom moved to a new building. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone, but unpacking I could do without!!
Here are my two unpacking side kicks. Yup...I bribe them with treats to help me!! :D

Now on to the Q & A:
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

Diet Pepsi, chocolate, reading, shopping, chatting with friends and families, sitting by the side of the pool, animals and hand sanitizer! No one should ever leave home without hand sanitizer!! LOL!


IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?

When I was getting my teaching degree I always thought I would go back to school and become a speech therapist, too. Now I think I would rather do something with animals. We are BIG animal lovers...we have 5 cats, 2 dogs and a salt water fish tank. We are building our own private zoo here!

THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU
Dedicated, picky and loyal 

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

"I have so much free time...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 grandma who passed away about 12 years ago. I would love to be able to spend more time with her.

Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?

Life powered by diet pepsi! 


 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
 
 Ooh, I would love to be able to blink and have things be instantly clean and organized!! Think of how much time that would save!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

"Bummer" is something I say all the time. One of my favorite quotes is, "It takes a big heart to shape little minds."
 

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

 "This is the stuff" by Francesca Battistelli

I love this song. It could be the theme song for my life. It is about letting the little frustrating things in life pile up and make you forget how blessed you are. 
 
 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

LOL! In the summer I am a night owl and a morning person during the school year! 

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

My  Blending sounds Fluency and Comprehension Pack is probably one of my favorites because it helps reading click with my kiddos. 
Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 

I have a pen fetish. I LOVE different pens and and styles of pens. I have been known to swap pens with family members when they aren't looking to get a pen I like better. 

I hope you have enjoyed learning more about me. Now it is YOUR turn! Head over to Falling Into First to get the buttons and join in on the linky party.
