Meet the Teacher {Linky}

So excited to be linking up with "Falling Into First" for a Meet the Teacher Linky. If you are anything like me, you spend countless and mindless minutes and hours reading blogs, gathering teaching ideas. (It's definitely my hobby!) I have met so many teachers from around the world and have gathered so many fabulous ideas in the process. This linky gives us a chance to meet some of the teachers that we read regularly or meet some new teachers we may have just stumbled upon.

So here's a little about me...
I'm Kaitlin---The "K" in K&C Love Grade 3
 
I live in Ontario, Canada. I am entering my 8th year of teaching and have taught at 12 schools! (I get bumped because of seniority and enrollment). I have taught just about every grade and have LOVED just about every one.... which clearly tells me that I am meant for this career! It makes me happy!! (most days- lol).
 
I have been married to the love of my life for a little over 3 years. We LOVE to travel, play sports, watch movies and dine together. Most of all we LAUGH A LOT together. We have been on many adventures so far and I can't wait for ones to come :)
 
What I have been up this summer:
 
A bit of travel...
 
A little reading...
 
And a whole lot of relaxing! I can't complain!
 
 
 
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
Travelling. Drinking good wine. Working-out outdoors. Playing sports. Tea lattes.
Grilled cheese sandwiches & tomato soup. The show Fixer Upper. Pottery Barn. A warm sweater on a cool day. Manners.
 
IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
An interior decorator .... or a professional classroom decorator. But I can't really imagine being anything other than a teacher, to be honest.
 
THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Hardworking. Honest. Happy.
 
FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"
"My job ends when the bell rings", said NO TEACHER EVER
 
Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING? 
I am going with people who make me laugh--because life is too short to be a crab.
  
Jimmy Fallon- He does the best imitations and I just love his humour and laugh!
Paul Rudd- He's my movie boyfriend, plus he's sarcastically funny.
My friend Sue- Because she's nuts and would love to sit with these two. We would have a hoot!
 
 Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE? 
Dancing with Honesty, Sarcasm & Laughter

Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
Teleportation. I would love to be on a vacation pronto-- no waiting in airports, driving in a car etc.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING? 
 
 “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
 

 
Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye
My sister and I use to sing this ALL THE TIME growing up. Whenever it's on, we automatically begin a duet!

Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
 
I love sleep, so I guess I am neither. Ha!
 
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Drama-in-a-Jar-Brain-Breaks-Too-804614http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Writing-Portfolio-Monthly-Seasonal-825082
 
Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 
I eat Nutella and Peanut Butter out of the jar likes it's no-ones business!
Bad habit, but ohhh so great!
 
OK, your turn! Link back HERE to join this 'Meet the Teacher Linky' and meet other teachers! :)
 
Happy Reading!!

  1. Professional classroom decorator? That didn't even occur to me. Is that even a real job? If not, it should be!!

    I love your kayak(?) photos!

    1. Hi Becky!
      I don't know if professional classroom decorator is a job..... But I am willing to invent it Haha! Agreed-- it should be a job! :)

      And those are SUP boards (StandUpPaddleBoarding Boards). We have a new company in our hometown that rents them out for sunset paddles, yoga classes, etc. Super fun!!

      Nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. Hi Lori!
      We paddle boarded at a place called "Urban Surf Company" (http://urbansurf.ca/). It's a little paddle board shop that opened up in our neighbourhood last summer. It's awesome! You should definitely try it sometime. So worth it.

      Yes, Jimmy Fallon-- so laid back and so darn funny!
      And your state..... fantastic!

      Thanks for stopping by. I'll have to swing over to your blog asap :)
