Meet the Teacher!

Meet the Teacher Linky :)

I am so excited to link up to this meet the teacher post. It's always fun to learn more about the fabulous bloggers you follow and share ideas with.



Hey Y'all! My name is Erin. I am a 30 year old teacher and doggy mom from south Georgia. This is my 8th year teaching first grade and my second year teaching a gifted and advanced content first grade class. I. LOVE. IT. !!!


I have an amazing family. We are all somewhat involved in Education. I am the oldest of three girls. We love Holidays and like to laugh. These are our last two Christmas Family Pictures :)



I have three babies. My Manolo (Named after Manolo Blahnik) is a yorkie, Wicked (named after the musical) is a rescued cat. Zoey (rhymes with Joey from Friends) is a rescue white fluff ball of adorableness. They are my heart.




THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

Turquoise. My animals. Cheese dip. Shopping with my family. Instagram. (find me at @theelementarydarling) diet coke, cooking, refinishing furniture and decorating. I also LOVE decorating for Christmas, maybe a little too much. I have four trees in my house and they each have a theme. Here are two of them :)

Shoe Tree

 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
Definitely an event planner. I love all things events. Here is a friends baby shower that I did.




THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Creative.  Determined.  Sassy.  

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

"I love all the bathroom breaks I get for myself ...said no teacher EVER!!"
 

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

Marilyn Monroe, My Great Grandmother, and

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

 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

For sure, night owl. I despise the mornings. I do not like waking up, but once I get going, I am usually fine!

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

 I  am still working on my TPT shop. Right now I am working on classroom decor! I don't have much in my shop, because I am finishing up my specialists degree and I don't have much time to work on things, but I will after May! 


Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 


I have about 250 pairs of shoes/sandals, but most of the time I am barefoot :) I would show you a picture of my closet, but it's a hot mess! I am working on making an extra room into my closet and then you all can take a virtual field trip inside!

Join the party! Visit Falling into First for all the details!

  3. I love Diet Coke!! The baby shower you planned is beautiful. I haven't heard of advanced first grade before- sounds like a great opportunity.

    1. Thank you Allie! In advanced content I have half gifted students and the other half is what we call advanced content. Its high achievers that may have not qualified as gifted but are still really smart and need additional modifications for advanced thinking. Its new in Georgia, and our county has added it in and I LOVE it. Its the hardest class I've ever taught, but it is so much fun!
