Organizing Student Information!

I finally got my student information pack up and ready to go on TPT! 
Click on the picture below to check it out!



 Here's the cover I'm using for my student information sheets. 
I love anything with adorable melonheadz kids!



I use this "Getting to Know You" form at my open house to gather student information. I put them all together, put the cover on, and bind at the top! It hangs from a hook above my desk for easy access all year long!


This pack includes 4 editable cover pages, 1 complete getting to know you form, 1 editable getting to know you form, and a sample of my cover! Check it out!

Meet the Teacher Linky!


Hi there! I'm a first grade teacher from Michigan. This is going to be my 10th year teaching... that seems so weird to say (and it also makes me feel old!). I am married to the love of my life and together we have an amazing little 2 year old boy! 


My best days are spent with my family, but I also love blogging, creating, crafting, and shopping whenever I can! This summer I've been busy working out (Jazzercise) and eating right. Our family spent a week together on the west side of the state relaxing and having fun on the water! I splurged this summer and got a custom blog design! I love it!

Getting ready to watch the sunset on Lake Michigan!



 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

My family, Sunday mornings at church, playing cars with my boy, Jazzercise, wandering around Target, Chai tea Lattes from Starbucks, pizza, crafts, garage sales, a good breakfast, bright colors, all things chalkboard, first graders, the beach, shoe shopping, nail polish, LOFT


 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
I love creating all things digital, so I know I'd love being a full time graphic designer! Creating things on my MacBook has become a serious hobby of mine!


THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
ambitious...  dedicated...  busy body

 
FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"

"I wish summer was a little shorter...said no teacher EVER!!"

Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?

A Day in the Life... of teacher, wife, & mommy

 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
Flying. As a child, I used to have continuous dreams about being able to fly... they were seriously the best dreams!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

"Be the change that you wish to see in the world."- Gandhi

Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

 "Eternal Flame" by the Bangles....

For some reason this is the one song I know all of the words to! It has something to do with singing it in my room as a child in 1988!

 
 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

I am a complete morning person. The second my eyes open... I. AM. AWAKE!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

 I really love my Leadership jobs and Leadership packs. I work at a school that is implementing The Leader in Me so these two products have helped me weave The 7 Habits into my classroom.




Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU!

I have a huge collection of NRFB (never removed from box) Barbie dolls! I always thought I'd give them to my daughter, but things didn't work out that way, so I'm stuck with a rather large collection in my basement!
