Meet the Teacher Monday...er Sunday!!

Tell us a little something about you...

Hello! My name is Crystal and I am the author of this little spot on the internet!! It isn't much, but I hope to add more this year! My team has recently added a new-ish teacher (she's been teaching for 14 years, but this is her first in Kindergarten) and she has ignited my passion for teaching!! This summer I also got married! It was a great day, and I look forward to being a wife this year and for years to come! 

How long have you been teaching?

This is my 4th year teaching Kindergarten! Before that I spent a semester teaching computers! It was so much fun! However, Kindergarten is my life long love!! I taught for two years in Kansas, and this will be my second year teaching here in South Dakota! 

You might not know...

 Hmm...something you don't know about me?!? Beside blog hoping and stalking...I love to make hair bows!! I don't have any children (yet) so I think of this as my time to practice!!

What are you looking most forward to this school year?
Like I said, my teaching fuel has been reignited. So I am really looking forward to this year! I am going to attempt the daily 5, math workstations, math journals, and a few other new things!

What do you need to improve?

I really need to work on being more consistent. I need to make sure that we have every subject every day! I love teaching writing, but sometimes it gets forgotten. I need to work on getting more organized! I was blessed with an amazingly large Kindergarten room, so I am hoping that through the year I can get myself better organized! 

What teaching supplies can you *not* live without?

I *heart* my SMARTBoard

My FUEL!!!

Sharpies in EVERY color!!!

I put these EVERYWHERE!!

I'm sure I'm missing about 1000 things that help me get through my day...but this is all I can think of for now!!

Thanks for reading! Become a follower and stay tuned for awesome things coming your way this school year!!
