All About Me


Today, I'm linking up with the ladies of Freebielicious again for their Tell Us About You Tuesday linky. I always enjoy reading about other teachers and since this blog is super new, I thought it would be a good way for you all to get to know me better.

If you've read my past blog posts or follow me on Instagram, then you already know I live and teach in the Caribbean. I'm from the Cayman Islands and have lived there my whole life, with the exception of four years in North Carolina for college. I absolutely love my country, my island, the people, and the culture. There is no where else I would rather be!


This last picture was taken just steps away from my house. I feel truly blessed to live so close to the beach, even though I definitely don't take advantage of it as much as I should! 


One interesting fact about me is that I am a triplet! My two sisters, Staci and Suzanne, are my best friends and an awesome support system for me. I don't know what I would do without them! 


I also have an amazing boyfriend, Chase! He's from the Cayman Islands as well. (We actually grew up on the same island and went to high school together, but didn't become friends until I was in college.) We just celebrated four years together; I am truly blessed to have him in my life. He is super supportive of me and always puts up with my constant teacher talk and classroom projects. 


There are lots of reasons I love being a teacher and one of them is setting up and decorating my classroom each year! This school year will be my third year of teaching and my third time setting up in a different space. That's right, I've never stayed in the same room for more than one year. It can be exhausting moving, but the great thing about it is that it gives you the opportunity to try out new decor and set-up ideas. Here is a picture of me standing in the doorway of my classroom from last year: 

And since I know you're probably wondering, yes, I only had 10 students (which dropped to 9 soon after). The school I teach at has around 60 students total, so class sizes are super small. My first year, I only had 6 students! I will be welcoming 11 little sweeties into my class next month and I am so excited to set up my new, larger classroom! 

Thanks for sticking around and reading a little about me! I'm looking forward to browsing through the linky and reading all about the other teacher bloggers out there!
