So let's get started!
We'll start with the basics.
I live in a small "city like" town in CT. I've lived ere all my life and I love it. I couldn't imagine being somewhere where it doesn't snow, rain, get hot or have the leaves turn colors. Even though I complain about those things on a regular basis! I am starting y 21st year of teaching this year, almost all of it in second grade. I still cannot believe I am one of the most "experienced" teachers at my school. I still look at myself as a young, new teacher... amazing.
I am very close to my two nephews and my niece. All of them are in high school this year, and my oldest nephew will be a senior. As in will graduate in June. And leave. And go to college. I am not dealing with that very well. I helped to raise these kids so they are very much like my own. And while I am so proud of what a wonderful young man he has become, I still think of him as the little boy who clung to me on the playground. Sigh...
I am a school supply addict. Just the other day I went into Staples to get something - and came out with $50 worth of highlighters, pads, paper... and actually forgot to get what I was going in there for! I have more post it notes - in all colors - than you can imagine. It's my way of organizing things.
As you read on, you will see that while I have done some wonderfully fun things in my life, I really do prefer to stay close to home. That being said, it would be so cool to see lions and zebras and giraffes and visit Africa. But seeing as I can't travel anywhere without dealing with major motion sickness, I don't plan on doing it.
Now that you know a little about me, here are some other fun facts:
That about does it! I hope you've learned a little more about me and my happy little life. Tomorrow I'll be back with Day 2 and we'll take a look at where I spend my days. Don't forget to hop on over to Bloghoppin' and read a little more about everyone else.
