All About The Kinder Teacher

Today I am linking up with the ladies from Kinder Tribe to share all about this Kinder Teacher.


Here are a few fun facts you may not know about me.

This is going to be my 10th year teaching! I have taught both Kindergarten and 1st grade. I think it is fun to mix it up!!! I am also a Special Education Teacher so I get to work with students with and without disabilities. I wouldn't want it any other way.

Coffee and Pinterest. Need I say more??? 

I may or may not have an OBSESSION with Sharpies. I love them in all colors and sizes. Did you know they make Sharpie Oil Paint pens??? These are the best for Christmas Ornaments.


I LOVE Snowman at Night, Snowman at Christmas, Snowman at Play Snowman At Work, and Snowman All Year. The illustrations are amazing and the kids LOVE writing about it.


Have you visited Tara's blog Little Minds at Work??? Amazing. Talk about a talented teacher!!!! I have learned so much from her.

I LOVE Kindergarten because it is the perfect balance between play and work. We are teaching them all of the basics from how to cut to how to share. It is amazing!!! Plus, you get to teach them HOW TO READ!!!! Seriously how cool is it to day that??? And, I really love the crafts.

Be sure to stop by Kinder Tribe and link up so I can read all about you!

  8. Snowmen at Night :) :) :) They love that book so much! But some of my students have gotten freaked out at things coming alive (why I can never do the gingerbread hunt at the beginning of school again, ha!).

  13. So excited to meet and learn about another Kinder Tribe teacher! Sharpie has paint markers?!? What?!?! I'm going to have to check these out. I love my Sharpies!!! I'm with you on Pinterest! It's like you could be totally exhausted, but checking Pinterest before bed is a must- which usually turns into hours! haha!
