3-2-1 Teacher Bio

The weekend is almost over, but I wanted to join up with the Weekend Warriors to share a few things about myself!

1. I am all about routines!  I think they are crucial in a classroom.  It helps students know what to expect so that they can focus their concentration on learning.  Some might think that routine = boring.  I disagree!

2. Social Studies and Reading are my absolute favorite subjects.  Lucky for me, those are the 2 subjects that I get to teach!  And my 5th grade social studies curriculum (American History) takes the cake!

3. Making connections with students is a HUGE part of teaching.  Students learn better when they know that their teacher cares about them.  Whether we discuss a sporting event, a book or their vacation plans, I always make sure to touch base with all of my kids.  This year, one of my students had the same 3rd grade teacher as me (in a different district) - talk about a connection!

These two were originally on The Teacher Me board, but I realized they spilled over into my real life as well.

1.  I have a passion for learning.  Whether it's about my profession or a new skill (helllooo TpT),  I always want my brain to be moving.  I am always reading...professional books, novels, etc.

2.  Yeah, I'm organized.  Yeah, I get teased for my organization.  Yeah, I don't care.  A place for everything and everything in it's place (usually labeled) is my motto.  I can't stand clutter.  I can't even watch the commercials for those hoarder shows.  Seriously.  My friend once joked that my idea of a mess is a neatly stacked pile in the corner.

I've been lucky enough to visit Hawaii twice and, in doing so, I fell in love with the islands.  Now, I want to live there.  I want to live like a local to experience their culture and way of life.  The gorgeous beaches and warm weather are just an added bonus!


  1. Thanks for linking up with us Sara! I agree that routines are sooo important. I think kiddos definitely need to know what to expect. Especially for those that may not have a lot of stability in their lives. I think it gives them a sense of security.

  2. I totally agree about routine! Routines are not boring, they are critical. I love Social Studies too! Math is my first favorite subject to teach, and then Social Studies. It's the one subject where I don't feel pressured to assess everything and I can use that time to do hands-on projects, tie our learning to important reading skills, or just have discussions as a class. I could definitely live in Hawaii! I hope you get to do that some day! Thanks for linking up with us for Weekend Warriors this month!

  3. I think adults need and love routines as much as kids do! And being organized is at the top of my list. I love Hawaii too. My favorite island is Kauai. What island would you choose to live on? Thanks for sharing a bit about you with all of us. -Jaime

  4. Hi Sara! I couldn't agree more that ROUTINES are so important! And I love that your passion for learning is so important to you.... I am super blessed to be attending the Vegas trip for the iTeach First conferences so I can dive in to some new learning myself!
    Thank you so much for linking up with us! The Weekend Warriors hope to see you again next month too!

  6. Living in Hawaii for a year would be a dream come true! I totally agree that children not only need, but love, routines. I need routines too or I would be a mess :-) Thank you for linking up with Weekend Warriors!
