Meet the Teacher

Mr. W, me, and Baby Matthew...Ok... 3 weeks away from 16!  YIKES!

Dexter... Everyday is a POOL day!
Emmett... the finder of all random bones in Maries County!

My Girls!!!  They promise beautiful brown eggs in about 2 more months.

The calves... My husband reminds me that they are NOT pets... but they are so darn cute!
How long have I been teaching?
This is my 9th year in teaching.  I taught 2nd grade for four years and was our district's K-2 literacy coach for two. This will be my third year in kindergarten... I L.O.V.E it!!

What am I looking forward to this year?
I have to say Math Stations.  I learned so much this summer from our book study.  I can't wait to see it in action!

What do I need to improve?
Being a more efficient planner!  I am confident in what I am teaching, but it just seems to take me so long to put it together.  I think I get distracted in my planning time... Must remain focused!

What can I not live without?
Teaching blogs!  You guys are so smart and inspiring!  Ok... it is not a supply, but it supplies me with ideas... Does that count?

My laminator!  Love it!
My document camera!  I use it throughout the day, but I love it for Writer's Workshop.

Mr. Sketch Smelly Markers... Oh, they are called "Scented" markers~ oops!!!
Gotta have them!
Hop over to meet more blog hoppers!


  1. Thank you for us to have a peek inside your life! I love that you have farm animals. It brought back memories of how I loved to gather eggs for my aunt on her farm. And... I can't live without my laminator either!

  2. Wish I had a personal laminator! Maybe someday. Good to 'meet' another Missouri girl!

  3. Oh Tessa! I have to tell you my blog angels told me about the laminator. I bought it at Wal-Mart for under $27 AND you can get the film from Amazon~50 sheets for about $12!!! I was surprised at how inexpensive it is.

    It is a total blessing!

  4. You are so stinkin' cute with all your pets!! And I love my laminator too!!!!
