Let's get aquainted party!

Linking up with Flying into First Grade
It's fun to do these things. I like getting to know other fellow teachers.

Here's how it works:

Topic- Tic Tac Toe

How it Works:  Look at the graphic below.  It is a Tic Tac Toe board filled with different categories.  You will post about three of these categories but they have to make Tic Tac Toe.  For example, you can choose to write about 3 topics that go vertical, or 3 topics that go horizontal, or three topics that go diagonal. 

 
I am going diagonal from the top left to the bottom right.

I went to ______ college and a favorite memory.

I went to Cal State San Marcos. Our mascot was cougars. It is currently my classroom college to encourage my students to go to college. One favorite memory that I have from college was in our teaching cohort. We took a class with a Dr. Rosario Diaz-Greenberg. She was amazing. She taught us about pedagogy and how to teach ESL students. One of her passions was to help students in Guatemala, her hometown. Our cohort collected supplies from crayons to pencils, markers, chalk, hand sanitizer, snacks, pencil sharpeners, notebooks and much more. We set up an assembly line in class and bagged more than 200 gallon sized Ziploc bags for her to take to Guatemala. My friend Cherise was lucky enough to travel with our professor and deliver the materials to the students. She said the look on their faces were priceless. Never a memory that I will forget!

My Favorite Memory as a school kid.

One of my favorite memories as a school kid was the talent show we did in 6th grade. I was with my 3 best friends, of course, and we had a dance move rehearsed to Gloria Estefan's 1-2-3 song! Let me tell you it was hilarious. I wish I had easy access to the video, but I don't.

Hobbies

I have quite a few hobbies. Hmmm... where do I start?? Well one of my first hobbies was making scrapbooks. I have made quite a few. The last one I made was for my son's first year of life and it took me almost 3 years to complete it!! My next one will be for my daughter. It's my goal to start it this summer.

I also like to sew. I just got a sewing machine last summer and have made some shorts, dresses, and table clothes since I've gotten it.

I like to make hair bows. My friend makes them for her business and I was like I can make these. They are fun and super cute!

I pretty much like to do anything crafty!


Well that's all for now. Have a great week everyone and a Happy 4th of July!

July Currently





It's almost July and since Farley had her currently up early, I am going to get mine done too. I have a lot going on next week and this weekend. We have been very busy here having lots of fun this summer. We've been to the beach, the river, and the San Diego County Fair. Next week for the fourth we are having a BBQ at my mom and dad's house. They have a pool, so that will be fun for the kids. You can also see a few firework shows from their house, so we will be staying there! My goal is to try and make a cake like this for the party.


I haven't posted anything really school related or created anything, but my mind is constantly thinking about it. Our school is closed now for the summer, just the custodial staff is there cleaning our rooms for August. However I am obsessed with the chevron print and found lots of great things on teacherspayteachers.com So I am secretly saving away until school starts. I'm having too much fun with MY kids!

OK! Currently Time!

June Currently

Linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy Fourth Grade.

Here is my June Currently!

I am super excited that school is in it's final stretch. Our last day is the 7th. I spent this weekend getting the house and backyard ready for our staff end of the year party. I am excited and looking forward to the end of the day on Friday. It's been a great year and I have learned so much teaching 4th grade. I finally have one year under the belt along with my 6 of kindergarten! Next year will go a lot smoother!

I have enjoyed my students. It's been a whirlwind, but fun! In just a month or so I can officially say I've been a blogger for a year, so exciting!

OK...Currently Time!

 
 
 
Have a great week everyone!
