So here's a bit about me:
Favorite color: various shades of blue, love it.
Favorite animal: I do like dogs (especially puppies)
Favorite number: 14 (old volleyball number)
Favorite drinks: I love the pumpkin spice lattes y.u.m...........and hot chai lattes
Facebook or Twitter: ha, I'm in the process of closing my facebook because it's all too much with pinterest, blogs, etc!
My passion: I know that all my blessings come from my Lord and Savior, I love working with enthusiastic, hard-working teachers, never miss my yoga, traveling and exploring the world, love to shop at vintage/thrift stores, and movies with my sister as often as possible.
Giving or receiving: I find it very difficult to receive.......I even asked for no gifts for my upcoming wedding ( I refuse to register so people will honor this!), so yeah, I guess I like to give more than receive.
Favorite day: Fridays-I love relaxing and refueling on the weekends.
Now who do I pass this award to? I am a bit new to this blog world, but I pick the inspiring Clutter-Free Classroom (who has probably won this award a thousand times over!)
and now, very quickly:
My Current Job
I have done many long-term sub assignments during my 3ish years of subbing (the other 6 years were with my own class).......I am currently in a dream long-term job. Honestly. So lucky.
It's at a school I know, with a supportive principal and bright and friendly office staff. Yes please. The staff is super nice and friendly : ) The teacher I'm covering until Christmas is a superstar teacher who has taken over the program coach role at the school (so students are well-trained and I'm learning cool stuff from the routines she's established). Yay and yay! AND, it's an ELD second grade class, which is so great because I've been wanting more experience in second grade and I also welcome more experience with ELL students. Wahoo!
Here are a couple pictures from her classroom :
