My favorite hobbies
or what do I enjoy doing during my free time?
I'm trying not to laugh about the words "free time". Do people who work full time and have two little kids have free time? When I find free time, I like to spend time with my kids and my husband. I also enjoy crafting, reading, go camping , knitting and exercising. I've been working on trying to find ways to relax during my free time, but I'm finding that a bit tricky when the "free time" is so limited. :)
The best advice I've been given?
Less is more and long as you do quality teaching. I think we often try to do too much as teachers. Doing less, and taking the time to do it well, deepens understanding and helps our students make meaningful connections to what they are learning.
Most rewarding part of teaching?
Without a doubt, it is watching children learn to read! It amazes me every year how much they grow and how proud they are of their progress.
What am I known for?
Talking too much and saying what I'm sure others must wish they were brave enough to say. :)
2 random facts:
I am obsessed with Windex.
I use it on tables, chairs, bookshelves
and lockers at school.
I seriously feel so much better when every surface gets a windex shower!
I'm scared of most animals.
I LOVE my two goldendoodles.
But, I have nightmares about getting attacked by a dog on a regular basis.
Yes, I pretend that I love animals at school.
