Hey there! I joined this site during my very brief winter break.
I’m a first year elementary school teacher, fresh out of college,
so I’m a little busy and a lot stressed. I could definitely use
someone to make life a little more fun right now!
What I’m doing with my life
It’s my first year as an elementary school teacher, and I’m
currently teaching fourth graders who truly believe they know more
than me, but they’re funny, so I keep them around. When I’m not
teaching them, I’m preparing lessons to teach them, or grading
papers from lessons I’ve taught them, or thinking about teaching
I’m really good at
-memorizing & reciting movie quotes
-teaching sarcasm to children
-listening to others
-giving & receiving advice
-pop culture trivia questions
-wii bowling. I’m not bragging, I’m just saying.
The first things people usually notice about me
My personality ranges between sharp and snarky to extremely silly.
I have a loud laugh and a big smile, and about 7 million freckles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Wedding Crashers, Anchorman, The Dark Knight, anything Wes
Anderson, anything Christopher Nolan, Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind...and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days :)
TV Shows: Arrested Development, Parks & Recreation, The Office
(circa season two), LOST, Once Upon a Time, Friends
Books: all Harry Potter, all the time. When I’m not reading one of
those for the 17th time, I’m reading books on how to be a better
teacher, or books that my fourth graders might be interested in so
I can FINALLY get them interested in reading.
Food: I got a little too used to the Ramen noodle diet in college,
but I also love shrimp and snow crab legs. I’ll try anything once!
The six things I could never do without
-my family to keep me sane
-friends to keep me happy
-good TV to keep me laughing
-exercise to keep me energized
-the kids I work with every day who make me laugh, cry, roll my
eyes, and smile so wide
-orbit wintermint gum.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Why “Arrested Development” was canceled
-my current/past/future lessons
-my current/past/future students
-trying to remember things I need to do
-how the people in my life are doing and how I can help make life
better for them
-how the creator of Post-Its has made my life so much easier
On a typical Friday night I am
Well, that depends on how much sleep I’ve gotten/how I feel/how my
kids have treated me. Two Fridays ago, I was dancing at the Rec
Room. Last Friday, I was watching Parks & Rec while grading
papers while working out on the exercise bike while eating dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m sure anyone who has read through all of this can tell that I’m
snarky and cynical…but I’ve spent most of my time lately being
fiercely independent by choice. I won’t be that clingy girl calling
you asking what you did after you brushed your teeth because I have
other things to worry about…but I will give my all when it counts.
You should message me if
You know how to make a girl laugh, can carry a good conversation,
or have discovered the wonders of Parks & Recreation. :)
