Teacher Week '13: Let's Talk About Me

It's time for Teacher Week '13!


  1.  I am getting married in just under a year to the greatest guy!  I could not be more excited!!!!!
  2. I am getting ready to start my third year teaching 4th grade.  I love the curriculum and seeing the kiddos personalities blossom.  I could live without the girl drama.
  3. I decided that I wanted to be a teacher when I was 6 years old.  Until my junior year of college, I thought my dream age to teach would be preschool or kindergarten.   Now, I love my upper graders!
  4. I played water polo in high school and college (and did swim team in high school).  Now, I'm working on teaching myself to like running (which I have always HATED - hence the water sports).
  5. I love to sew, but don't make time for in enough.  I've been working on a quilt made of all my swimming and water polo T-shirts for about 3 years now ...
  6. I majored in creative writing in college. 
  7. I'm an only child.
  8. I like/need to sleep a LOT.  I basically can't function on less than 7 hours.  I can easily sleep 10-11 hours if I don't set an alarm!
  9.  I have always been ridiculously organized.  Yet, somehow, my classroom is not.  I'm working on that!
  10. I keep myself very busy.  My fiancé always says that I don't know how to have free time!

I'm excited for the rest of Teacher Week.  Unfortunately, I will have to skip tomorrow's link up because my room is not ready enough to show! :(  I'll be showing it sometime next week probably!  I can't wait to learn more about all of you and see your classrooms tomorrow!


  1. I can't post tomorrow either. We don't go back until September 3rd and are locked out for the next two weeks.

    1. Oh, wow, that's late! We start back next Wednesday, so mine has to be done soon. Good luck getting your classroom done once you can get in!

  2. I love my sleep, too. People always ask how I can sleep so much, and I really have no idea! Getting back into a normal sleep schedule is going to be soooo hard!

    1. Ugh! Getting back to that sleep schedule is the hardest part of back to school!

  3. Dani,

    I am nominating your for a Liebster Award. Check out my blog to see what it's about!

    Have a great one!

    For the Love of Fourth Grade
