Ok. So this is me. I cut out the background of my bathroom. You really don't need to see my bathroom. Just realize that bathrooms have the best lighting. This is why they are fabulous for the selfie-shot. Which really means, I should put up some sort of backdrop curtain in there, like it's a photo booth.
This is also me:
I take hamburgers very seriously. Especially when they come without the hamburger. But- if you have your friend take pictures of you being really serious about a burger missing the meat- then the manager gets
embarrassed nervous that you are a social media mogul and gives you a coupon for a free burger. Plus the meat that was missing in the first place. He saved himself from an incredibly small and awkward protest that day. Bless his heart.
I grew up in Alaska. When I was 15 I moved to East Tennessee. And then I moved to Long Island New York to go to college. This is where I discovered I really was no good at chemistry and became an English major. And then discovered that being an English Major does not buy you any burgers. So I went to graduate school to get a Teaching License. In the midst of this I got married and moved to Virginia. And then got a divorce. I am a single mom of three kids. Two boys with a girl stuck in the middle. Pity her- she deserves all the sympathy in the world.
I have taught fourth and fifth grade, and now second. Second is my favorite. I'm taller, and therefore slightly more foreboding. Plus, seven year olds haven't realized they can mutiny, or lost their soul to pre-teen ennui quite yet. And probably getting older than the parents of the kids I teach has helped a great deal as well. There are some perks to pushing 40 after all.
I like to blog for the sake of writing- which is a love of mine. I also like sharing teaching ideas and talking with teachers from all over - collaboration is a key to success in my opinion. I do have a TpT shop with my sister, but I try hard not to make my posts, or my life, all about the business. Which I suppose means I'm not rocketing to stardom anytime soon. But that's ok. I can always hold out hope to marry a very rich organic strawberry farmer. Or win the lottery. Winning the lottery is more likely in my case. As soon as I get around to buying a ticket.
Here are the two of us together- she's off on yet another trip in this photo. And her sunglasses are better than mine. Oh well. She does her best to keep me on the straight and narrow of Go Go GOOOOO! And then drags me kicking and screaming. But hey- that's what big sisters are supposed to do.
Sometimes, I don't blog consistently like I should. But I am easy to find on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as these are incredibly easy and addicting outlets for my needs to share punny photos and discuss the greatness of chickens.
