10 Things about the Teacher!

1. I am married to Mr. Harrison...you might have him for a teacher, football coach, or basketball coach at OHS! We LOVE the red and black! 2. We have TWINS...Jay and Eva...born May 9th. They are the absolute light of my life. I never knew how much I could love until the twins arrived :)

3. We also have a fur baby...Mia...a six year old black and tan miniature dachshund! She is also the light of my life. You could say I am obsessed with weiner dogs!

4. Teaching is a calling. You could say I have always known I was going to be a teacher. I am passionate about teaching, and I cannot imagine any other profession! This is my 10th year of teaching...really...WOW time flies when you're having fun! I have a masters degree in elementary education, and I am a National Board Certified Teacher!5. I love to nap! Although it does not happen as often as it used to...wonder why, I could sleep for hours...anywhere, anytime!

6. My favorite colors are red and black, black and pink!

7. I love to read...children's books! Some of my favorites include Thank You, Mr. Faulker, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Because of Winn Dixie, There's a Boy in the Girls Bathroom. My favorite authors include Patricia Polacco, Dr. Seuss, LeighAnne Florence, and Beverly Cleary.
8. I love all things Christmas...lights, ornaments, Santas, angels, nativity scenes, presents, shopping, wrapping, parties, food, etc!
9. My favorite sport is soccer, but I also like football and basketball. Mr. Harrison coaches football and basketball so I attend a lot of games! I have coached soccer most of my life, but gave it up for a couple of years because of the twins.

10. I love to eat...almost anything and almost everything! Red Lobster might be my favorite restaurant!

Guess Who's Back!

Ahhh...back to third grade and back to blogging! As much as I enjoyed my time in first grade, I am absolutely stoked to be back in third grade. I am a good teacher at any grade level, but I must admit that I rock third grade!

I invite you to visit our blog often! If you have an email address, I will email you when the blog is updated! You never know when your child will be showcased! I post weekly updates with class happenings, brags and boasts, upcoming events, parent tips, and useful (or useless) tidbits! Eventually the students will also update the blog...nothing better than real world writing to create little authors :)
