Friday Teacher Feature

Happy Friday!  Why is it that short weeks often feel longer than regular weeks.  The weekend is just about here, although we have had a lot of penguin fun in our class this week.  It's Friday and that means I have a new teacher to feature.

This week I am featuring Susan from First Grade Friendly Frogs.  She is actually my teaching partner.  I love her math color sheets she has created.  Here are a few interesting things about Susan:

What grade do you teach?

How long have you  been teaching?
16 years

What do you love most about teaching?
I love seeing how much my students change from the beginning of the year to the end of the year!  First grade is a year of such tremendous growth and I love being a part of that with my students.  It doesn't hurt that I get 20+ hugs a day either!

What has been most challenging for you as a teacher?
One of the most challenging things for me is finding that balance between being the kind of teacher I want to be and being the mother I want to be for my own children.  It is hard to do it all as well as I'd like to.

*One thing she did not mention is that she has one daughter in high school and triplet girls in middle school!  She is one busy momma.  

What do you like to do for fun when you are not teaching?
Currently, I enjoy creating games and activities for my classroom and TPT store!  I love to scrapbook, although this past year has not seen any additional pages added to my scrapbooks!  I hope that changes in 2013!

What is your favorite children's book?
Easy!  Tacky the Penguin!!  I love that little bird!

Share a random fact about you.
I love ocean life and got to swim with Beluga whales at Sea World in San Antonio!  It was one of the most memorable things I've ever done!

Thanks Susan for sharing a little about you!  Check out her blog and TPT store.

Enjoy your weekend!
