Monday Meet Me!

I know I've said this before but I WILL get back to blogging on a regular basis.  I figured this new linky is a great way to start!  This will help you get to know me (and other bloggers) better.

I teach 4th grade in San Antonio, Texas.  This past year we tried team teaching and I taught reading, writing, and language arts.  This coming year we all all going back to self-contained... both have its pros and cons but I am excited about teaching math, science, and social studies again.  I just finished my 10th year teaching in public school... all 10 at the same school.  I also taught 5 years in private school with some time in between to be a stay home mom.

I have two amazing teenagers.... WOW, amazing and teenagers in the same sentence?  Cray-cray, but its true.  I have been blessed with an incredible daughter named Isabella Rose who is 19 now and an incredible son named Jacob Gregory who is now 16.  Isabella works at Starbucks and goes to a local college here in SA and Jake is working at Fiesta Texas this summer and is a junior at Health Careers High School.

I watch a lot of reality T.V., pathetic I know, but I do.  However, I LOVE watching any movie with Adam Sandler.  He makes me laugh so much and he reminds me a lot of my husband.  

My favorite thing to do is laugh!  I love to laugh and make others laugh so therefore I love listening to others laugh.  It makes me happy to see others happy.

I am not a big reader but when I do read, its usually something school related.  Since I am now on summer break I am planning to start reading The Writing Thief and Reading in the Wild and Poetry Mentor Text.
I love the author Mitch Album and if I read something that isn't teaching related, I like to read memoirs or non-fiction.

Lastly is I do...   I do a lot of things but I thought I would include that I love my husband of 24 years. After all these years we still enjoy each others company. 

I'd love to learn more about you!  Let me know something about yourself in the comments below.  Also click the button below to join this linky or learn about other bloggers.

Happy Summer my fabulous friends!


  1. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog! I am your newest follower. :) My husband and I have only been together for 5 years. 24 years is definitely something to be proud of! Clearly you were "meant to be". ;)

  2. I have taught in a team teaching and self-contained environment and I agree both have pros and cons. I have to say I really missed teaching the other subjects too. Love the titles you are reading this summer. I will have to check them out.
