3 - 2 - 1 Teacher Bio

 I am so excited to link up and tell you a little more about me! 

1. I love setting up and organizing my classroom. When I moved into my current room last year it was just like every other room I have ever moved into... completely empty! It takes many hours and a lot of love to get a classroom ready. At the end of this school year I moved some furniture around and took down this years theme. I can't wait to put up my new theme and set my room back up. Here is what my classroom currently looks like... 

2. This year I was so blessed to get 5 iPads donated to my classroom through donors choose. At the end of the year my school got technology money from the district, and they bought the second grade teachers 13 mini iPads and a teacher iPad. Wow! Our current iPad count is at 19 iPads! I am so close to being a 1:1 classroom! I love finding apps that engage students and get them so excited they don't even realize they are learning. Here is one of my favorite math apps called Number Run.

3. What girl doesn't love Pinterest!

1. I will have an Amazon Prime membership For-ev-er. Seriously! Phoenix just got next day delivery and it is amazing! My purchase this week was not a book but rather the erasable Frixion markers I have read teachers raving about. Oh my gosh these markers are awesome! Mr. Fancy totally didn't believe they would erase (because they write like a real marker) but YES they do erase, and they write beautifully! Seriously you have to own these markers 


2. I could watch Cutthroat Kitchen and Chopped all day long... oh wait I already do... Oh summertime how I love you!

Okay Stop laughing! I just want to see one from far away, nothing close up or scary. I may just settle for this t-shirt!


  1. I'm super organized too!! You are so super lucky to have so many iPads in your classroom!!! Thanks for linking up with us!

  2. The UFO thing may have me laughing a bit! And now I need to go put those amazing markers in my amazon cart! I always write in planners in pencil because I don't like to scratch out. These may be just the thing!

  4. I love setting up my classroom too! I don't know that most people understand just how much thought and effort goes into the process, but in the long run, it's so worth it! Amazon Prime is amazing! How did we live life before it came to be? Haha! I need to check out those markers. So cool! Thanks for linking up with us for Weekend Warriors!

  5. HOLY MOLY! I love that I can actually say this with no worries.....My mom and I saw a UFO off the coast of Amelia Island, Florida 15 years ago..... It was the COOLEST THING EVER! But setting up the classroom can be just as COOL! LOL! What's your theme going to be???
    Thanks so much for joining us for this month's linky! The Weekend Warriors would love to have you back again next month!
