I am linking up with the Weekend Warriors for their 3-2-1 Teacher Bio.
Here's a bit of information about the teacher me:
I love containers, bins, and labels! Everything in my classroom has it's own place. People who come into my classroom tend to laugh at how organized it is. But you bet I can find exactly what you need in a heartbeat.
Since I teach a first through six grade Special Day Class for Deaf/Hard of Hearing students, I often have my students for six years. That means I cannot repeat the same activities each year. I have to label things I use by date so I know when I used it last! I don't want the students to get bored and I certainly don't want to hear "I've done this before!" I love reading blogs and getting new ideas from Instagram and Pinterest.
I spend at least eight hours a day in my classroom. It's basically my home away from home. My black and white polka dot themed classroom makes me happy and is calm and a great environment for my students to learn. Yup, even my screen savers match my classroom!
Now the regular me:
When I am not at school, I am happy being a mommy to two beautiful little girls. My crazy girls are 7 and 5 and a bundle of laughs. They keep me busy and entertained! We are starting soccer in the fall for both of them. Saturdays are going to be consumed by the soccer field!
I started scrapbooking back in 1998 after I got married and haven't looked back! I love preserving our memories and writing about our experiences. I do both the traditional paper/picture pages and I also do Project Life. I love taking a photo a day and documenting the little things in our lives... not just the major holidays. Two times a year you'll find me at the "Lake House" with my scrapbooking group. Three full days of preserving memories. I look forward to those trips!
And now what's on my bucket list?
I would love, love, love to take my girls to Disneyland. We only live a few hours away, but until my oldest can get over her fear of characters I am afraid it would be a wasted (and expensive trip) to Disneyland. She seriously panics and hyperventilate cries when she sees anyone is a mascot style costume. We're going to give LEGOLAND a try in the fall for their birthday's as a trial run.
Thanks to the Weekend Warrior gals for the fun linky. Join them below!
