Gotta Start Somewhere...

With this being a new blog I thought it might be nice to share a little about myself so  that you can get to know me a bit better. The first thing I should tell you is that I love lists. If making lists was a sport  I would totally earn the gold medal in the list making olympics. So when I decided to share some things about myself with you guys I figured a list was the way to do it!
Here it goes...

Five Fun Facts! (Hint: All lists need a catchy title)

1. I have an awesome family! I am lucky enough to be best friends with my sister and am so thankful for the love and support I get from both my parents.

2. I LOVE my job. Of course I hate getting up before six am every day and I may spend more time at school than at home but I get to hang out with an awesome group of third graders and all the exhaustion doesn't even compare to hearing their excitement over a good grade, their  basketball game win or hearing the words I love you from one of my munchkins. I love knowing that just by being at school with them every day I am making a difference in their life. That makes it the best job in the whole world. 

3. I have an amazing boyfriend. I am sure he will be mentioned quite a bit on here so you'll be hearing plenty about him later on. We don't see each other nearly enough since we are separated by 3 states but he is wonderful at making me feel special and important in his life. Aren't we cute?

4. My next fun fact is that I have scoliosis. I have had it since I was 12 and wore a brace for about 5 years. At the time it was something that I hated and thought was horribly unfair- of course it was also a time when I was a slightly moody teenage girl so that may have had something to do with it. But as an adult, looking back on it, it's a huge part of who I am and I am grateful for it. It's a challenging thing to explain but someday this topic can have a whole post of its own. 

5. Last but not least, I think sharks are really cool. I had to throw a silly one in here because let's face it, that last one was a little serious. I've always been fascinated by sharks and if I hadn't fallen in love with the idea of teaching/ been miserable at science I might have ended up as a marine biologist. But instead I watch shark week every year and pretend that I'm an expert which is just as good right?

I will leave you with this hilarious photo I found via Pinterest that goes nicely with fun fact #5...enjoy!


  1. 1. I hope you and your sister are best buds forever.
