Meet the Teacher

Hi De Ho Good Neighbors!
I always feel like Wilson from Tool Time whenever I start a blog post.
Anyway...the super sweet Stephanie from Falling into First is having a great Meet the Teacher linky. Stephanie is adorable! I met her briefly in Vegas and she's a delight. So this linky is all about getting to know me just a little bit better! Number One- I am always late to party! As you can tell by me linking up eons later than hoped. I used to be much more timely, but then I got married and had three kids. The rest is my history of being perpetually late!
I live on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. If you aren't down with your New England geography I live on that little arm that sticks out of Massachusetts into the Atlantic Ocean. 
Think beaches, lighthouses, lobster roll, boats and ice cream. That's Cape Cod.
We are also where the Pilgrims landed before they settled on Plymouth.
Ok, Geography lesson is complete!
I spent many a summer on the Cape at my grandparents' house. But after I met my husband whose a real live Cape Codder we decided to call this place home! At first it took some adjusting because everything is just far enough away, but now that we have kids I love it here! Speaking of kids we have three. I love them loads and they drive me nuts in equal amounts.
Here we are just this weekend at my brother's wedding!

I am going into my 8th year in first grade. What the what?
I taught 1 year in Kindergarten before moving on to first.
I am dying to try my hand at second grade though!

Moving on to the...

 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
My family. My friends. The beach. Pinot Grigio. Smirnoff Ice. Pizza. Ice Cream. Shopping. Target. Arbonne Fizzy Sticks. All things Apple. My tv shows. Reading easy books.
Crying at books and movies.
Quiet time. A clean house.
The last two are figments of my imagination!

 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
A Broadway Dancer! I really wanted to do this until I found out you had to be able to sing and you had to live in NYC (eww...sorry New Yorkers). I did teach dance full time after college, but there were no dance teaching jobs that offered benefits. Rats! So I went into elementary teaching. I now get to use my classroom as my stage. I continue to dabble in dance here and there, but I am just over the top busy with life right now. I hope to someday be the little old lady in the back of a tap class having a grand time for herself!

THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Funny. Kind. Helpful.

FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"
"I'd really love to tie your shoes that you just walked all over the bathroom floor in...said no teacher EVER!!"

Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?
I've always wanted to do lunch with the Hollywood moms who I think would be fun to chat and hang out with. I'd invite- Jennifer Gardner, Reese Witherspoon, Emily Blunt (mostly to chat about John Krasinski) Jessica Alba, Rachel McAdams and Amy Adams.

Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?
These Are The Days

 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT? 
 I snap my fingers and my house, yard, car and classroom are all clean and organized!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?
"Be a problem solver."
I'm also a huge fan of this one I made up to the tune of Bob Marley's "One Love"
One mom, Two arms...This one mom has just two arms because I'm just one mom

Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 
Total Eclipse of the Heart
Now every mirror would crack because I have the worst singing voice in the world. And I gifted that terrible voice to my children through the magic of DNA. But in my own mind I sound damn good! I've loved that song ever since I would crank it up on my Walkman in 1987!

 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
NIGHT OWL!! Although kudos to me because I've been getting up for the gym around 5:30 many days this summer. I know you are all clapping for me right now...Thanks! Fingers crossed I can keep it up during the school year.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

 I just finished a Dolch sight word practice program that I am psyched about 
and it is going to get its very own post really soon! 


Thanks for stopping by and learning more about me!

  1. Hey Deirdre,
    I was also fashionably late to Stephanie's Meet the Teacher linky (I'm late to pretty much every linky!) Way to go on getting up early for the gym! I've always thought that sounded like a good idea in theory, but so far I haven't been able to motivate myself to try it out.
    Have a great school year!

  2. Better late than never, my friend! Way to go on the a.m. workouts. I know how hard those can be (we need sleep!)...you are awesome!! I think you will totally be rocking the tap shoes at the back of a dance class someday (in the distant future). ;)
