Hey y'all! Thanks so much for taking the time to learn a little bit more about me.
I have been teaching for about 17 years and it is so rewarding. I am amazed by how much the "Littles" I teach actually teach me. Everyday in a kindergarten or first grade classroom brings new and exciting things.
I am blessed to be able to do what I truly LOVE to do.
I have a wonderful husband who is understanding about the many hours I work on the computer.
We have three beautiful children, Britni, Taylor and Hunter and three adorable grandchildren, Madison, MacKenzie and Carson.
I LOVE Sonic Cokes! It is hard to get through the day without one.
My favorite movies and quotes are:
Sweet Home Alabama
Earl: "You can't ride two horses with one ass Sugarbean."
Mrs. Gump: "You have to do the best with what God gave you."
My favorite t.v. show is Long Island Medium
My husband thinks I am all kinds of CRAZY for liking this show but I am obsessed.
I don't know why, but I LOVE it!
I also like The Mentalist. Simon Baker is a cutie patootie!
When I'm not teaching, working on a new unit or preparing for a conference I love to read.
I hate to admit it but Professional Development books are my favorite!
I also love hanging out with my friends. I have made some wonderful friendships through TPT and blogging.
Last October a lot of us met in Chicago for a fun girl's weekend.
These ladies are all amazing!
My sweet friend, Erica Bohrer brought me these One Hundred Dollar bill napkins.
I won't even tell you what she told me they were for but it makes me giggle every time I think about it!
A few months later my friend and coworker, Lisa told me about TPT. I had never heard of TPT so she sent me the link and I signed up. I slowly began adding things to my store and the first year I made $300. and I was pretty happy with that. Would it help with my mounting bills? No, not really but it was a start. I kept putting in the work that I told God I would do and some of you know the rest of the story. He showed up and showed out in a BIG way.
For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,
Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 14:13
CBS THIS MORNING
When he was only 13 years old he was injured in an accident. The accident left him a quadriplegic. He can't speak and he has no control over his muscles. He communicates with us by moving his eyes. He looks up for yes and he looks down for no. But mostly he just Smiles and he brings joy to us every minute that we are around him. For many years he has been pretty much stuck at home because of no way to get around. Medical transport will pick him up and take him back and forth to the Dr. but that's it. Until now.... because of YOU and your support of me on Teachers Pay Teachers I was able to take part of my earnings and buy a handicap accessible van. His whole life has taken on new meaning. Now my mother can take him to the mall, to the movies, to the park, all the little places that we take for granted. All because of each and every one of you. I can't thank you enough. The smile on his face as we took him out on his first outing is priceless. Thank you so much for helping me change his life!
