Meet the Teacher!!

                                                        The First Grade Parade

Hello blogland! I am so excited to be a part of my FIRST linky party! So...here is a little about me!

My name is Crystal and this is my 3rd year teaching Kindergarten and I LOVE IT!!!!! It is my passion and joy to wake up every morning and go to school!

I am a Kansas girl! I grew up in Kansas and went to college at Pittsburg State University- Go Gorillas!!!! I got my degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood Development. While there I joined the sorority Sigma Sigma Sigma...I met my best friends for life! It was the best thing I ever did!

I now live in South Dakota (eek) with my Beyonce (that is fiance to normal people)! We moved here in June and I can't say that I love it...yet. This winter is about to kill me! I do miss my family and friends in Kansas, but I am starting to feel a little at home in South Dakota! I never knew it was so hard to make friends as a grown up! We will be getting married in a few short 4 months (AHHHHHHH)! I am very excited and can not wait to be the wife of an amazing man!

Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t a teacher?                                             
A:  Once the beyonce and I have babies...I would love to stay home with them!

Q: What are your hobbies?                                                                                    
A:  I loooove to bake, and cook. I am working on getting a little more crafty..and blog land is helping me with this!                                                   

Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?                     
A:  I always knew I wanted to be a teacher! My family had originally talked me out of it, and I went to school with my degree path in Interior Design...I finally stopped trying to be something I wasn't! I love my life decision!
Q: What are your guilty pleasures?                                                                
 A: Dr. Pepper, Chapstick, both my Ipods (one for me, one for school), MTV reality tv...I love me some Snooki!! Dr. Pepper, chocolate, blog stalking, and facebooking!!!

Q: What is your biggest fear?!                                                                     
 A: Not being able to be a mommy!

Q: When you’re on vacation, where do you like to go?                                 
 A: Right now (while its -30 outside) I keep dreaming of my soon-to-be honeymoon location in Mexico!!! Some day I also hope to travel around Europe and IRELAND!!!
Q: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?                                                   
A:  Don't let anyone tell you what you CAN'T do!

Q: What do you value most in others?                                                                   
A:  Kindness...I believe you should be kind to everyone!

Q: If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass down to your kids, what would it be?                                                                                                        
A: Again...Kindness! I have a HUGE heart!! I like to do what I can for my fellow man!

Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world….living or dead…who would it be?                                                                                                             
A:  My grandmother, and my aunt. They passed away before I really got to know them! What I wouldn't give to talk to them, and show them the woman I have become!

**I just want everyone to know that it took me like an hour to figure out all this stuff!!!! Blogging is hard!!**


  1. Love it! Chapstick is a guilty pleasure of mine, too. I keep some everywhere, just in case... ;) I agree, I took WAY too long to answer my “Meet the Teacher”. Ha. Good thing it’s a snow day!
