Monday Meet Me!

YAY!  It's time for more fun with The Teaching Tribune!  Today is 

 I think that pretty much everything on here is known...except maybe my not so secret addiction to soaps!  LOL!  Can't believe my two faves are still on the air.  My mom watched Days when she was pregnant with me and my friends got me hooked on GH when I was in high school.  I don't tune in every day, but I watch enough to know what's going on.  Anyone else out there have a sinful, secret addiction?  LOL!

I teach -  Last year our school was part of the second year of implementing a new program in our district.  It's called the Accelerated Learning Model (ALM).  It was an amazing year, but I switched from first to second in order to do it, so I kind of felt that I was playing catch up this year.  Next year I am fortunate enough to be able to teach it again.  So excited!

I have - I think the hardest part on here was to write that my son is going to be in EIGHTH grade!  I did ask him the other day if he's seen this chubby-thighed little boy that used to run around here singing Kenny Chesney songs.  Boy, the years really do fly by!

I watch - Find me a good Law & Order marathon and I'm in!  Of course, I can barely stand to watch repeats, so my episodes are pretty limited. ;-) 

I listen - My son is so trying to get me to like rap music, but it's usually country or popular music for me.

I read - I have Notice and Note and WBT on my professional reading list this summer, along with a few "just for fun" books.

I do - Yep!  Shopping!  Retail Therapy!  Enough said.  

So that's it...that's me!  I'd love to "meet" you, so feel free to comment below about yourself.  


  1. I agree time goes so fast with our kids. My son graduated 8th grade just this last week, so now I have to say he's in high school. I too love Law and Order, since I don't get much time for TV even if it is a rerun often times I haven't seen I read WBT last summer and tried to implement most it this year and it was fantastic! I am rereading it this summer to get better.
