Hello sweet friends! Thanks for popping by my little blog. I hope you are able to find some fun ideas or resources here! So who exactly am I? I am a krazy kindergarten teacher from Fort Myers, Florida and have been teaching at the most amazing school for 7 years :) If there is one thing I am sure of, it is that teaching is what I was BORN to do. I love every single thing about it. Kindergarten is my happy place :)
My family is my world!
My parents live in Tampa, which is about 2 hours away!
My sister lives close by and is one of my very best friends :)
Wanna join me for a little trip into my past?!
Here we go...
I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri with my wonderful older sister, Amanda (who is also a teacher - 4th grade - totally different teaching universe than mine) and my magnificent, incredible, marvelous parents!
I really had the best life a kid could ask for, full of: love, hugs, food, support, excitement, comfort, toys, fall leaves, snow days, and a fireplace. Gosh, I miss that fireplace.
During my sophomore year of high school we moved to Tampa, Florida. Not at ALL what I was expecting, but I made it out alive. My sister transferred to FGCU in Fort Myers and I followed in her footsteps! We lived together all through college until I graduated a few years back with my BA in Elementary Education, my ESOL Endorsement, and my Reading Endorsement.
ON TO TEACHING!
I entered into my first year of teaching 2 months into the school year. I interviewed at two different schools, one of which I was really hoping for and the other I was a bit iffy about. OF course, I got the job at the school I was unsure of. Boy was I wrong, it was the best thing that ever happened to me! I love my school so darn much. It is full of amazing people and feels like a family. I have taught every year at my school and could not be happier.
There you have it, that's me in a nutshell :)
Thanks for reading, I hope you'll come back again and check out what happens in my kinder-krazy life and share your teaching journey with me!
