Meet the Teacher Linky Party!

Linky Parties are so much fun! Now that I figured out how it all works, that is. Today, I am linking up with Stephanie from FallingintoFirst. She is the lady that inspired one of my Pinterest projects this past summer. So ...you could say I am a BIG time fan of hers =)

*Busting out my happy dance and cartwheels!*



Hello! My name is Kristin and I am 32 years old. I am entering my 8th year of teaching and my first time EVER teaching a 2/3 grade combo class. I have taught 2nd grade for 2 years and 3rd grade for 5 years, but NEVER combined in one room at the same time. I'm bowing down and praising all past, present, and future combo teachers. I just spent 5 hours planning all day today!


(That is me, a very happy toddler)

My family are the most special and important people in my life! I love them dearly. I am very blessed to have had a happy childhood and adult life filled with love and happiness. 



Christmas is my favorite holiday. There's something special about hearing Christmas songs on the radio for 3 months straight and putting up Christmas decorations. 


 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

All things shabby chic, all things pink, Hello Kitty, Boo (the dog), Kate Spade purses, Michael Korrs watch, Marc Jacobs "Oh, Lola!" perfume, accessories and jewelry, Starbucks green tea latte with soy milk, Disneyland, Harry Potter series, Twilight saga, Hunger Games trilogy, Divergent saga, The Ellen show, Cooking channel (even though I don't cook much), all things technology (big time tech geek here), Brasilian street food, CHEESE and WINE, Chris Paul, Ryan Gosling, Ian Sommerhalder, Zack Efron, looking at my hillside lights at night, The Mindy Project, The Office, Friends (Ross is hilarious), and summer time.

 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?

I would definitely be an interior decorator! I love home decor and organization. I think I would do a kick ass job at it!

THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.

Silly, sweet, and happy!

FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"

"I love it when I procrastinate and have piles of ungraded papers on my desk!, said NO teacher ever!!"

(horrific nightmare)!

Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?

I am inviting flipping Beyonce and Jay-Z! Have you seen their parties?!?

Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?

"Silly Giggly Girl"

Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?

Oh so tough...why do I only get one? I guess I would like to be able to heal people. I would go around curing everyne everywhere from all sorts of things.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

"Sorry, I'm not sorry!" & "Adorbs!"

Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

"I'm Going Down" by Mary J. Blige

Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

Night owl. Morning makes me groggy without some caffeine!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

I'm not a TpT seller, but these are my FAV products:
          

 1). California Native Americans from SailingintoSecond
2). ANY Melonheadz Illustraing clipart
3). ALL of Hope King's classroom decor set (I own 3!)

Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 

I was born in Sao Paulo, Brasil. I speak 5 different languages (English, Portuguese, Chinese Mandarin, Chinese Taiwanese, and Spanish). I wear a size 5 in women's shoe. I am 5'2" (2 inches shorter and I qualify for handicap license plate). So, 5 languages ... 5 in shoe size ... about 5 foot! BUT the most amazing one, is that I actually have wavy hair because my dad has curly hair. I straighten it every morning. When it is muggy outside, you will see all of my frizz (it's so attractive...NOT)!

    1. Hi Beth. Sometimes speaking different languages makes your brain go into an overload/brain fart mode. There are times I am thinking something and what I am thinking just doesn't come out right in a language. It can get pretty confusing up in my brain! I hope you have a wonderful year too =)

    1. Hi Lori!

      Thank you for using my FAV word to say right now. And now that school has started, I really have to watch myself and make sure I don't let it slip during school hours. The last thing I need is for my students to also say "Adorbs" =P

  5. I love all of your languages! I speak Spanish and German (and English)... I just love languages! ...and I saw your comment about getting mixed up.. I am a native English speaker and I will get messed up and start speaking Spanish when I am in an English conversation! I love it though!
