I am linking up with The Teaching Tribune for Monday Meet Up. This week’s Meet Up Monday is all about me. I am new to the blogging world. I only started this past April and have met so many new people.
Here is a little about me!
I teach 2nd grade in New York City and I do love teaching. No matter how many times I count the years left until I retire, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else!
I have 32 second graders in my class this year and probably next year as well. I have an 8 year old son, Alex. His picture is below…boy does he hate taking pictures. I have been married for almost 12 years, but have been with my husband for 17 years. I have been driving him crazy since he is the one who started my blog for me. I keep changing things and asking him, “What do you think about this?” You can see his picture below too, along with my cat who was named by Alex when he was 3 years old. It’s kind of embarrassing now to call “Cutie, here Cutie!” 🙂
I watch TV while I work. Often times it’s just background noise. I watch Bones, and a few shows that my husband likes. I have to admit that I watch a lot of murder. I usually have on Snapped or ID Investigates a few times a day. My husband just shakes his head at me and says,”The police always suspect the wife first!”
I listen to a lot of different kinds of music, except Country (sorry Country fans!)
I read professional books that I hope will make me a better teacher. I also read Romance books, usually Historical Romance books. Hey, a girl’s gotta dream…right? I don’t get to read much during the school year, but I sometimes read about 3 books during the summer.
I do like to cook. I like to try new recipes and sometimes experiment. I also like to go for walks. How else will I burn the calories from my cooking experiments??
Here is my family.
