A Few of My Favorite Things!


Welcome to my brand-new teaching blog! I'm so thrilled to be starting this journey! Inspired by my friend Nicole (great name!) at Teaching With Style, I began a TpT account in May 2012. I instantly loved the network of teachers, resources, and blogs that seem to go hand-in-hand with TpT. I wasn't ready to start a blog of my own for quite awhile, but now I am!

Since it is the holiday season and I do love The Sound of Music, I thought a fun way to introduce myself would be to share a few of my favorite things, in pictures!

My yorkie Chloe (yep, my dog has clothes! haha)
ZUMBA!! I'm addicted. My fave instructor also happens to be an elementary teacher!
Making cards! I just joined the S.E.I. card club with my friend. Can't wait for our card-making parties!

Pretty much my favorite store ever. I have an embarrassing amount of hand soap and sanitizer stockpiled.

Gel manicures! I learned how to do my own. I have this exact polish on right now for the holidays. :)
My store on TpT! I LOVE creating cute new products for my class and store.

I LOVE My Grafico and spend way too much money on adorable clip art here!

Alicia at Dreamlike Magic. I had so much fun creating the design for my blog with her!

AND, of course - teaching! A few of my firsties from this year. :)

    3. Thank you Miss Squirrels! I've never even thought of the possibility of a dog called a dorkie, that's hilarious. I always thought it would be funny to have a pug/yorkie mix so you could call it a porkie! hehe

    1. haha well a gel manicure is also called "shellac" in the salon world. It's a special kind of nail polish that you cure with an LED or UV light and it lasts for 2 weeks with no chipping! And thank you!
