Getting to Know You....

Is that song stuck in your head now, too?

Latoya from Flying into First Grade is hosting a new linky in order to get to know other teacher bloggers.  This one is just for fun and being Latoya's first link-up, I think we should all join in!
This is an ongoing linky that will have a new topic each Sunday, so if you miss this one, you can always join in the next one.

This Sunday's Topic: 3 things about yourself that you like/like to do that start with your initials.

I love all things neat and organized.  Not every space I occupy reflects this feeling, but it is there, I promise.  

M is for Music.

When I don't have music in my life, I don't have a life.  

There have been so many times where I have felt like this girl in this picture.  My brain is exploding with music.  I also laugh as this reminds me of so many of my students.  They love to sing, and I often catch them humming a tune or singing to themselves without even realizing it!  
Music is a part of our soul and it can show our true reflections.

I wish I knew more about reading music.  My three years playing the trumpet for the middle school band just doesn't cut it.  I recently joined my church's choir and need a refresher on reading music! It has been too long :)

T is for teaching.

I love teaching and all of its beauty and pitfalls.

If I had a quarter for all  the times I wished someone would have offered to watch my class for a restroom break....

I cannot count how many times I have rearranged my classroom on the weekend.  I'm planning on going up there tomorrow (the Monday of my Spring Break) in order to rearrange and Spring Clean.  I am excited and not the least bit sad about this decision. See my first initial for more details....)

100% funny
100% true

Well, that's it for me.  What about you? What are 3 things you like? I'd love for you to join in the fun!

I'm excited about the upcoming weeks topics:  2 truths and a lie, would you rather, and top ten!    

Great idea Latoya :)

Happy Trails to you, until we meet again.
