Welcome to my blog! My name is Kristen and I am a 4th grade teacher in Texas. I adore my students and I love coming up with new fun lessons to make learning exciting! I would love to share my lessons, fun class times, and love for learning with you all.
Today was our 4th snow day in a row... Texas weather is ridiculous! I have done everything from watching endless amounts of TV, cleaning our apartment, spending personal time reading my new book Radiant by Marian Jordan (so good!), and now I started a 'teacher blog'. Thank you to my sister Kylie and her BFF Claire for introducing me to the blogging world. Now, I have something to do.
I wanted to introduce you to my amazing family...
Some of my wonderful, beautiful friends,
And my adorable boyfriend, Matt,
Now let's Q&A....
Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t a teacher?
A: I would totally be a principal. Actually I have my masters in educational management so that someday this dream may be a reality.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: Hanging out with my wonderful friends, St. Ann's Catholic Church Teens, shopping, reading loving on my boyfriend
Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: Well, it was a mixture between doctor, teacher, and flight attendant. I kind of wanted to be all three! Can I still do that?
Q: What are your guilty pleasures?
A: WORLDWIDE TRAVELING!!! I love traveling. After spending time in Australia, I definitely have the travel bug.
Q: What is your biggest fear?!
A: Snakes... I hate them. Their slithering disgusting bodies make me shiver in my Banana Republic tan leather boots.
Q: When you’re on vacation, where do you like to go?
A: Anywhere out of the country.This summer I am going to be in a wedding in the Netherlands!
Q: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
A: "Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile."— Mother Teresa
Q: What do you value most in others?
A: Integrity. I think this is the most important quality to have in a person.
Q: If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass down to your kids, what would it be?
A: My joy... I LOVE life. I try to live life as a reflection of God's glory.
Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world….living or dead…who would it be?
A: Mary. As the mother of Jesus and of all of us, I would love to just love on her.
Now tell us one random thing about yourself:
I am obsessed with anything Australia. After living there, it opened my eyes to just the world. I have tons of friends there and I was so blessed to have a student in my class this year from Melbourne. Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!
I also was on a safety video for American airlines DC-10 flights for 10 years... my claim to fame!
Until next time. Peace, Love, and teaching.
