Tell Me More

Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons      
 I'm linking up with 

For the Tell me more, tell me more! linky party.

Ok, I don't know where to begin?

1. I have been married for 11 years (july 14th)
 Isn't he cute!  hubba, hubba!

2. I have 2 amazing kids!  Daughter age 8, Son age 6 

3. I have been teaching for 15 years starting in August.
4. I started teaching in New York City, 
stayed there for 2 years and then got a job on Long Island teaching 4th grade. After 2 years in my school, they  moved me to a new school that opened up to teach 4th grade.  After 2 years there, I had a baby, bought a house and moved to Florida.  I got a job teaching 3rd grade!  After 3 years of FCAT, I asked to change grade levels, and I got 1st grade.  I worked at that school another 2 years until the district closed it down. I was transferred to my current school to teach 1st grade.  This will be my fourth year there.  so let's add! 2+2+2+3+2+4=15!!!!

5. I love the show So You Think You Can Dance! I wish I could dance like that.

6. I love to bake!--I made this for the fourth of July

7. I try to sew--I made these pillows for my classroom this year.

8. My friend had her 3rd boy so I made her this Diaper Motorcycle! I am so proud of my self.

9. I love living near the beach! 

10. This our dog Joey--he's a hound mix, we got him at the Humane Society in the middle summer about 3 years ago.  What a sweetie!

11. Oh this is me trying to take a picture of myself with my phone--I'm a dork!

12. I love teaching with pattern blocks! My Daughter made this.  She is very creative!

13. I wish I could travel more, but It's hard with 2 kids and bills, so I love vicariously through my sister's postcards Kim the Artist and World Traveler

Last but not least,
I love to read!  Twilight, Hunger Games, Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Nora Roberts, The Night Circus, Little Women,  they are all great reads!

I hope you learned a little more about me. Happy Reading!

  5. I almost moved to Florida! I had a lot of interviews/offers at a teacher recruitment fair and the one interviewer asked me why I wanted to move to FL and I said because who wouldn't want to live near the beach and be able to do their lesson plans in that calm atmosphere haha. Sometimes I kick myself for not moving there (ok a lot of times I do). There is an award for you at my blog :)
