Meet the Teacher Linky!

My Instagram has been buzzing with posts about this linky, and I just couldn't pass it up!  Falling Into First is hosting a Meet the Teacher Linky so we can meet some new friends before back to school time!



Hellooo from Minnesooota!  I'm Ellie, a 25 year-old teacher, blogger, and TpT'er.  I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota and will be starting my third year of teaching in a couple weeks.  I taught 3rd grade for two years, but this year I'm moving up to 6th!  Someday, I hope to return to the lower elementary grades, but for now I will enjoy my adventure with big kids!

This summer has been one to remember!  I visited Sin City, had a birthday, and saw Paul McCartney in concert!  In September, I'll be moving into a new apartment with my boyfriend, Mr. Wolf.  The end of this month will mark SEVEN years dating this guy!

Vegas, Mr. Wolf, and the Paul McCartney concert



 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

Blogging. TpTing. Fresh flowers. Days at the lake. Baking. Antique vases. Food Network. Smelly markers. Leggings. Infinity scarves. Smoothies. Caribou (the Starbucks of Minnesota). Pretty binders. Sewing. Decorating. Creating art. Farmer's markets. Crafting. 


 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
A Baker!  I LOVE baking, especially cupcakes!  Maybe someday, years from now, I will open my own cupcake shop.  :)


THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Creative. Funny. Kind.  

 
FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"

"Sure, I can certainly do that in my free time ...said no teacher EVER!!"
 

Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?

Jimmy Fallon!  And Martha Stewart (to decorate).


Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?

 Colorful Tails 


 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
 Tough choice!  Invisibility, or… the ability to travel back in time.  Mhmm.  :)


Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

“There are three types of people in this world: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.”


Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

 "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" - Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell

I love me some oldies!

 
 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

Depends on the day!  This summer, I have been a TOTAL night owl, and then sleep in late and take a couple a nap during the day.  During the school year though, I would rather go in to school early when it is nice and quiet.  I get a lot done in the mornings before the bell rings!

 
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

 I can't choose just one!  My most recent is my Back to School Morning Work packet.  Coming in a close second is my Pairs of Pears Homophone Activities packet.  For some strange reason, I just LOVE  homophones.  They are one of my favorite things to teach.  :)



Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 

Sammie, Rusty, and 9 mo old Trapper (hunting dog)
My parents have three dogs… but I am allergic to them.  Every time I go to their house, I come stocked with allergy pills and nasal spray.  How could I possibly stay away from those adorable faces?

One more fun fact?  I've never dyed my hair.  I refuse to!  I love my natural color.  :)

Be sure to visit Stephanie at Falling for First and link up to introduce yourself!

  2. I am a firm believer that you can never have too many infinity scarves! I also adore Jimmy Fallon- especially his lip-syncing contents and whenever he teams up with Timberlake! You have an infectious smile :)
