Meet the Teacher Blogger Linky

What a great idea from Stephanie at Falling into First! Have you seen the other great link-ups from some fabulous bloggers? I couldn't resist joining in the fun!

That's me- Maria.  I'm 27 and live in South Jersey with my husband and new fur-baby, Lacey.  This is my 6th year teaching, 5th year teaching ESL, 4th year in my district.  I didn't major in education; I got my certification through the alternate route program, which was a great option for me.  I have taught French, Basic Skills, and ESL, and I'm currently working on my 2nd master's in administration.

This is us on our recent trip to Maine.  We had a great time in Kennebunkport and Freeport.  My husband and I met our freshman year of college and have been together ever since. 

This is Lacey, giving us her "What do you mean that's not a toy?" look.  She's a work in progress!

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: 

The beach.  Reading books from the library.  Netflix binge watching.  Kirkland's. My grandmother's jewelry.  French food. Italian food.  Most food. 

If You Weren't a Teacher, What Would You Want to Be?

Although I majored in communication studies to be an anchorwoman, I'd probably be best at lawyer-ing or judge-ing.  But my dream job is to be the person who names the paint colors. Seriously.

Three Little Words That Describe You

Shrewd. Ambitious. Sensitive. 

Finish The Sentences, "_________" Said No Teacher Ever

If You Had to Sing One Song on American Idol, What Would It Be?

"All About the Bass" Meghan Trainor
I <3 this song!

Are You a Morning Person or a Night Owl?

Morning.  I jump right out of bed when my alarm goes off and can't stand when other people *husband* press snooze. 16 times.

What's Your Favorite Resource in Your TPT Shop?

Whatever the newest is!  But I'm really proud of my Diary series- I work so hard on those babies and my students LOVE them- they ask, "When can we read another diary?"

This is an old picture- there are now 10 diaries in the series.
Something You Might Not Know About Me:

I'm left-handed.  I think I speak for all persons of handedness when I say we have a hard time writing on the board.  My left pinky is covered in ink by the end of every day.

Hope you enjoyed learning a little about me! Go check out all the other link-ups at Falling into First.


  1. Oh my goodness! Lacey is SO precious! We have two small dogs (under 25 pounds full grown) now but I am dying to get another fur baby of a bigger breed soon!

    I recently was just introduced to "All About the Bass" It took a minute for me to get into it but, it is pretty catchy!

    Enjoyed your post.

  2. We have 2 dogs & we always get the "what do you mean it's not a toy" look too - love that! Your diary series looks fantastic!! Fun learning more about you. I'm going to try to link up too. Enjoy the rest of summer!

  3. I love that song "All About that Bass," too. It is great when I am running. I love the title of your book. It is a great life motto.
