Meet the Teacher {Linky}

Today I'm excited to take a little time to introduce myself and tell you a bit about myself! I have found so many teachers and friends online that I just adore and have loved getting to know better through reading and rereading their blogs!

Hi Ya'll! I am Melissa and I'm a wife, second grade teacher, and semi-new blogger. I taught Kindergarten for a few years before moving up to second and boy do I love it! I'm so lucky to get to spend everyday in the place I love... My Classroom! After a fun-filled summer I am so excited to get back in there and get things goin' again!

This is a picture of me and my husband at my favorite place to go each summer... the beach! This year we actually couldn't make it because we tried something new and went on a journey out west to Cali, Nevada, Utah, & Arizona. It was a blast!


This is our girl, Shilah. She's a Siberian Husky who is going to turn 3 this year. She's really brought a lot of love and happiness into our lives. Shilah is also my classroom's mascot and the students love seeing new pictures each month. It's a lot of fun having her as a member of our classroom and it gives me an excuse to have an excessive amount of pictures of her on my desk and around the room! :)


                          Now onto the Q & A session!


THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
My Hubby... Shilah {Obviously}... Family... Friends... The Beach... Photography... Dancing to My Favorite Music... Aqua & Pink... Bracelets... Ballerina Flats... Hiking... The King of Queens... My College Memories... Blogging...  


 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
I would be a ballerina for The New York City Ballet. I still will do twirls or a plie from time to time... Or I'd be a photographer, although I have to admit, I'd have to learn a lot about cameras! Right now I'm what you might call an extreme amateur


THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Determined, Loyal, Emotional 


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


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

My ancestors - that would be so cool to meet them!

Famous Female: LEAH REMINI! 
Famous Male: Heath Ledger {Need I say more?}


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

One Heck of a Journey:
The Life of an Inspired Woman, Wife, Teacher


 YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?

Flying... I don't like sitting in traffic and I'd be "Going Green," right?!

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

I love this simple quote because it applies to many things...


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

This is hard because I love music! 
I'm pretty into Sam Smith's Stay with Me right now... 

 ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

If you know me... right now you're laughing! I am such a night owl that I still have summer nights where I almost make it until the sun comes up. 

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

I'm really proud of my writing prompts bundle because it was something that I needed in my classroom and a resource that I couldn't wait to share with other teachers. Writing is my favorite subject to teach!


SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 
straighten my hair everyday! It's a curly, wavy... well, to quote Stephanie from Falling Into first, "It's naturally a crazy hot mess!!"
I used to be able to curl it pretty nicely but now that it is so long, it's too heavy and just looks C.R.A.Z.Y. to me unless I spend a little time with my flat iron. 

Wow, this was fun! Thanks so much for reading a little bit about me! I can't wait to post lots of pictures of my classroom and share classroom ideas, as well as resources this year! 
Stay tuned for a ton more!
