Meet the Teacher

My name is Jennifer and this is my fifth year teaching. I have taught first, third, and fourth grade. I love first grade! I work in a small school district that really promotes technology, which is my strong suit. I just started blogging, but I can already tell it's going to be an addiction.

Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t a teacher?                                              
A:  I would be a children's book illustrator. I love to draw and incorporate my artistic talents into anything I can in class- especially on the whiteboard!

OR I would be on a Soap Opera. I know, so ridiculous. But I can't get enough of General Hospital! I should just be a character there so I can get the scoop early. 
Q: What are your hobbies?                                                                                     
A:  I love to read! And I love to shop--does that count as a hobby? The shoe section of Nordstroms is my happy place. I especially love online shopping. If I ever win the lottery I'll spend it all in one night at Revolve Clothing, Saks, and Nordstroms!                                                                   

Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?                      
A:  At one point I wanted to be a clown....What was I thinking? But I thought my third grade teacher Mrs. Williams walked on water. After that I wanted to be a teacher.
Q: What are your guilty pleasures?                                                                   
 A: Queso and chips. I love anything I can dip a cracker or chip into. If only cheese burned fat....

Q: What is your biggest fear?!                                                                        
 A: Spiders and snakes. I HATE spiders. There was a HUMONGOUS spider hanging from my recycle bin in my garage. I saw it just before my hand lifted the lid and I screamed so loud I'm surprised my neighbors didn't call 911.

Q: When you’re on vacation, where do you like to go?                                    
 A: Seattle, Washington. Love it there! We vacation there every year. Water, the smell of trees, rain, and mountains. LOVE IT 
Q: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?                                                   
A:  Man---I have no idea! I'll have to think on this one.

Q: What do you value most in others?                                                                    
A:  Honesty and loyalty. The truth isn't always pretty, but tell it anyway. 

Q: If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass down to your kids, what would it be?                                                                                                         
A: My creativity I think...     

Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world….living or dead…who would it be?                                                                                                                
A:  I would love to have lunch with J.K. Rowling!  I want to pick her brain! 

Now tell us one random thing about yourself:
I met my boyfriend at the Phoenix airport. At the time I was living in Texas and he was living in California. He was on the standby list for my flight. We got to talking and he gave me his business card, and here we are five years later...
