Meet the Teacher Blogger Linky!

I'm linking up with Stephanie at Falling into First for Meet the Teacher blogger!

I'm the blonde one! with my beautiful sis!
SO a quick little bio! I'm Rachel, the tattooed teacher. I by no means have more tattoos than a few other teacher bloggers I know, but they are not public about it! haha! I am starting my 12th year teaching! that sounds crazy! It's my 5th year teaching 2nd grade. Before that I was all about 4th grade! I love the little guys in 2nd! seriously! they are like sponges and love me no matter what!

Here's a little Q and A I had with myself!

Q&A Session

Q: These are a few of my favorite things…
A: flip flops, Diet Coke from McDonald's, crime tv

Q: If you weren't a teacher, what would you want to be?
A: magazine layout! No writing, just playing!

Q: Three little words that describe you.
A: distractible, spunky, oversharer

Q: Finish this sentence, “___________________, said no teacher EVER!!”
A: I LOVE paperwork

Q: It’s your birthday and you can invite anyone {dead or alive} to the party. Who are you inviting?
A: Oh! Abraham Lincoln, MLK Jr., Miss Frizzle...wait, just one? No! the more the merrier!

Q: If someone wrote a book about your life, what would be the title?
A: Breakfast at McDonald's

Q: You get to pick one superpower. What is it?
A: invisibility-I'm super nosey!

Q: What’s your favorite quote or saying?
A: Listen with the intent to understand, not the intent to reply. -Stephen Covey
let me explain this one-I DO NOT do this which is why it is now my quote...I'm working really hard on this one! and if you have never heard Stephen Covey's voice, you are in for a treat! I wish I had seen him in person! Here's one of my favorite videos!

Q: If you HAD to sing one song on American Idol, what would it be?
A: Like a Prayer or Lodi Dodi. It's a toss up really!

Q: Are you a morning person or a night owl?
A: neither. I'm a 9-5 girl. Before that I'm still sleepy and moody. After that I'm too tired to care!

Q: What’s your favorite resource that you’ve created in your TPT shop?
A: all of them! even if it needs sprucing up now! If I don't love it, it's still on my Mac!

Q: Share something we might not know about you!
A: I am a firm believer in the Oxford comma.
Some may call me "comma happy" or "snooty comma user", but my English teacher taught me well!

this blog may not support consistent capitalization or punctuation in general, but fully supports the Oxford comma

I hope you link up with Stephanie, too!

    Across the Hall in 2nd Grade

  12. The Oxford Comma! Seriously! I remember when I started teaching second grade (8 years ago) and wondering why everything was missing the comma before the 'and' in my teaching materials... I always wondered what happened to that comma... I am going to use it with pride now. There is a name and I am no longer worried that I imagined it up somewhere in my education!

  13. I'm glad I stopped by to learn more about you because I needed to hear that quote you posted! Definitely some valuable words of wisdom to consider, especially when working with parents. Oh, and long live the Oxford comma!

    Paiges of Learning

  14. I am anti-oxford comma. I was taught not to use it and I simply cannot write one. If I debate, I always delete it. ha
    I am an over-sharer as well.

  15. YESSSS OXFORD COMMA LOVE!!! <3 haha loved reading your post! :)

    Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd

  16. I am also a big fan of the Oxford Comma!!

    For some reason, Diet Coke does taste better when it's from McDonald's!
