Let's Get Acquainted Linky

I'm a little behind on this one, but better late than never!

This week is simple--answer 3 questions.

1. What made you decide to become a teacher?
This one is hard for me. I have always wanted to be a teacher. I remember playing house when I was younger, and I always wanted to be the teacher (or a banker, but only because that meant I got to play on the computer). I have always loved kids and wanted to work with them, and teaching just seemed to make sense to me!

2. What has been your most rewarding experience as a teacher?
I think the most rewarding, and my favorite part of teaching, is seeing the progress. Working with such a young age lends itself to lots of progress in one year! I have loved seeing all of their growth over the course of the year.

3. If you were not a teacher, what would you be?
This one is tough. I honestly have a hard time imagining myself being anything other than a teacher. My dream when I was younger was to own a bakery. I still love baking, but I have a hard enough time waking up early enough to be at school, much less early enough to own a bakery! Teaching is definitely where I am supposed to be.

I'm down to only 6 days!! How many do you have left?


  1. I can totally relate to always being the teacher playing house. I'll never forget getting into a fight with one of my close friends about the spelling of the word "one". As the teacher I gave her a spelling test and she wrote "won" instead of "one" and was furious when I marked her incorrect. Luckily we've both grown up a wee bit since then ;)

    Congrats on making it through your first year! (in 6 days)

    1. How funny! Thank you! It really does feel like a huge accomplishment to be almost done with my first year. Hopefully next year will just go that much more smoothly!
