3-2-1 Teacher Bio!

I keep seeing these fun link ups about different topics that we teacher folk have time to talk about during the summer so I thought I'd finally jump in on one from Lucky to be in First!



I know it sounds corny but I have done so many things in education and I always come back to the classroom.  It's home to me and it's where I will stay!

And, a little bit about regular me...


1. I've always been active but in my adult life I haven't been really involved in sports of any kind.  When I owned my scrapbook store (yes, another unknown fact about me) I had a customer who became a great friend call one day and ask me to join her mud run team.  One of their people had backed out so I said sure!  I was hooked and started doing races.  I started with 5ks and just kept inching up in mileage.  In January of 2013 I ran the Goofy.  Goofy was putting it nicely.  Its a race put on by Disney World.  You run a 1/2 Marathon (13.1 miles) on Saturday and a full marathon (26.2 miles) on Sunday.  I trained for 6 months and I did it.  It was tougher than childbirth but I did it.  7 weeks later i decided to do a local marathon because I felt like I still had it in my legs. It was tied to a kids marathon that my class had been working on all year long.  They race coordinators let my kiddos wait at mile 25 for me and we did the last mile together.  That was the last marathon I will ever do!  PURE TORTURE!

I am just getting to the point now were I love running again.  Training for a marathon takes the fun out of running and I didn't run much in 2014 because it just didn't seem fun anymore.

2. Yes, I am an animal freak!  The chickens are my latest favorite!  They came from my classroom after we incubated eggs last year! Can't beat fresh eggs on a daily basis! :) 


Now it's your turn!  Grab the buttons below, link up and tell us all about you!
