I've decided to participate in Teacher Week over at the new blog Blog Hoppin' (started by Babbling Abby, Deanna Jump and many other great bloggers.) Day 1 is Meet the Teacher Monday--so here goes!
My name is Kathryn and I have been teaching for 10 years now (and I can't believe it...it seems like YESTERDAY when I started). I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl and I forced my younger brother to sit and play "school" with me. (My mother always said that's why school was never his favorite thing--he had already been to school for years before he ever started kindergarten. And I think I was a really mean teacher!)
I am still single and do not have kids of my own, but I have a very spoiled dog named Calvin. He does not enjoy back-to-school because I often forget to do things like, you know, feed him! So maybe it's a good thing I don't have kids!
When I'm not teaching, I love to be crafty--especially art journaling and paper crafting. And jewelry making and sewing (well, OK, I'm still working on that last one!) I'm getting ready to buy a new, fancy camera and am going to learn how to take decent pictures--so there's something to look forward to...no more iPhone pics!
I love to read--especially "Chick Lit." And I love movies--especially romantic comedies. I'm a sucker for a happy ending! I also think I've seen just about every Jane Austen/Charles Dickens/Henry James adaptation out there.
I'm addicted to reality TV--Project Runway, Top Chef, Survivor...
I love to travel and am planning a big trip to Europe next summer. I can't wait!
I spend way too much time on the computer--reading blogs and on Pinterest! And I may have a slight addiction to Diet Coke.
That's about it!
School starts tomorrow for me--so I'd better run. But I do have something very special to share later today--(I worked on it all day yesterday!) So check back later!
