Meet the Teacher Blogger Linky

Hi all!

My name is Dawn and I am *justnow* getting started as a teacher blogger, so I'm elated that this linky came along so I could read about all of you and hopefully make some new connections.

My professional path has been a bit unconventional and, as I began to type it out here, realized the length and detail were a bit inappropriate for this post, so I'll bore you another time.

So, here are the basics. I live in San Diego, CA, and have for all but two years of my life. I'm 34 and have been married to my perfect match, Dylan, for about a year and a half. This is the two of us on our wedding day.



We have a puppy named Murphy, who is our greatest joy and simultaneously our greatest frustration.



I'm thrilled to be back in education and to have a third grade class this year!

I can't wait to get to know you all!

 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

I'd feel negligent not mentioning the husband and dog, since they're my life. I also love planning and cleaning (but not dusting because allergies). I'm sort of addicted to Instagram and Pinterest. I also read way too many young adult novels. Hiking is my only athletic pursuit and I love to cook and bake.


 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
If I weren't teaching, I would love to be a personal chef. I get a great deal of joy from feeding people and watching them enjoy what I've created.


THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Goofy. Intelligent. Loyal. 

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

"I just need to finish ONE more thing", said no teacher ever. At least not a teacher who meant it.
 

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

Anna Kendrick, Richard Brautigan, Winston Churchill.

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

With a Little Help from My Friends  


 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
 The ability to freeze time, for sure. 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be. -Kurt Vonnegut
 

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

 Gunpowder and Lead by Miranda Lambert because it's so much fun!

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

Night Owl all the way. Mornings are my enemy. 

 
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?4

I haven't taught since 2009, so my shop is mostly bare right now. Two products! Woo! Since I'm teaching again, I expect to have lots added throughout the year.

    1. Erin, so nice to meet you!

      Thanks for the blog name recognition. When choosing it, I was worried no one would get it.

      We will definitely have to duet! I also think Redneck Woman is a great song to belt out karaoke style.

      I've just followed you on Bloglovin. I'm trying to blog stalk all the 3rd grade teachers I can.
