Do You Hear Crickets?

I sometimes feel like I do.
And then I get this 

 from a sweet follower, Carrie Dawley, and I think, ok Yay no crickets ;)

So if you wanna know a little more about me, read on ;)

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging so that my parents would have peek into our classroom.
Now I blog to share with other teachers.  I've gotten so much from other fabulous teachers and thought I would give some insight into a Dual Language classroom.

Have you always wanted to be a teacher?
Never considered it until I went to USC (fight on!) as a business major.   We all had to volunteer hours, so I volunteered at a school.  I loved it so much and after going back and forth, I changed my major, received my bachelors degree,  teaching credential, and have loved being a teacher for the last 19 years, YAY!

What is your favorite non-teaching website?
Pioneer Woman
Kevin & Amanda
I love that they're so down to earth and so willing to share

Do you have pets, children, or both?  How many?
My five kids are 22, 19, 17, 16, and 5, whew!
and our doggy, Sauza.

What goals do you have for the summer?
Rest, relaxation, and time with my family.
Also on the top on my list... scrapbooking, finally got my mojo back :)

What was the year, make, and model of your first car?
I still have my first new car, a 2000 Dodge Durango.
The window doesn't work, the AC doesn't work, and right now the battery is dead, just needs a little jump, but I'm still not ready to give it up.

Have you always taught the grade that you teach now?
I've taught Kinder, 1st, and 2nd.  Love them all :)

What do you like to do when you aren't teaching/grading/lesson planning?
I love watching movies and scrapbooking.

Out of all the places that you might have lived, which is your favorite?
I would love to live closer to the beach.

What is your must-have accessory for your work outfits?
Comfy shoes :)

What has been your least favorite vacation destination?  Why?
Desert areas, sorry, heat and I don't do so well together.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I always find it interesting to see what other people were/wanted to be before they were teachers. I've only ever been a teacher, and that's what I entered school doing. I love scrapbooking, too. Unfortunately, I've got so much on my plate right now that I can't find time to do it. Hopefully things start slowing down a bit before the school year starts and everything picks up again. :)
