Teacher Week 2014: Who Monday!

Hi y'all! I'm a newbie to the blogging world and am a first year Kindergarten teacher. I graduated in December 2013 with my bachelors in Early Childhood Education (prek-3rd) I got hired in November and got to leave my internship early (blessed) to finish out the year for a 3rd grade teacher who had to move to be with her husband and his new job. I was the moved to Kindergarten (where I truly belong) and am now a first year Kindergarten teacher. I interned in Kindergarten and fell in love with K. During my internship I started following teacher blogs and really got inspired. Here I am now starting out in the blogging world and a new TPT seller and I am enjoying every minute of it. There are many teachers that I follow who have inspired me in so many ways. One in particular whom I adore, is Deanna Jump. I buy all of her goodies and my Kinders love them. I also believe she is a great woman of God and shows that in the work and passion she has with her kiddos. Anyways, Here is a little about me:

1- I married my high school sweetheart, Clint. We got married 2 years ago in Vegas with all of our family and friends. That is our baby Boomer. He's seriously the cutest.
2- I do not think the diet coke needs any explanation ;)
3- I love my job, it's seriously what I was meant to do and I am so blessed to have a job I love. My job does not end when the bell rings. I am constantly thinking and working on stuff for my Kinders after school and on the weekends and I will never complain.
4- I love OU game days
I love being on the lake. Thankfully enough, my in-laws have a lake cabin and it is my favorite place to be. This is a pic of me doing paddle board yoga on the lake.
6- Another pic of the cutest pup, Boomer!
7- I started running last January and will be running my second half-marathon this November. I love how my only competition is myself, it's also my little escape.
8-  I work at a very little rural school. I love it! It's like one big family!
9- Chick-fil-a, Yes, I'll have an 8 count with waffle fries, Chick-fil-a sauce and a diet coke please!
10- Jesus really is my bestie. I talk to him daily and ask for guidance in everything, especially with my Kinders. I don't want to just "teach" but I want to be someone they feel love from and safe with, because you never know if they get that at home. I ask God to work through me daily and to help me be the best I can for my kinders.


  1. I just found your cute blog. I love it!

  2. Love your blog! Glad I found it on the blog hop! I married my high school sweetheart too and am moving to kinder this year as well - super excited about that! I agree with constantly thinking about your kiddos even on the weekends - I think that is what makes teaching such a special thing! Happy new school year!
