"Meet the Teacher Blogger" Linky





I'm linking up with Stephanie over at Falling into First to introduce myself to the blogging community.  A new school year has begun, and since I'm brand new to blogging, what better way to get acquainted than with a linky party? :)

My name is Colleen Noffsinger.  I'm a 40-something wife, mother to 3 year old twins, teacher and now blogger.  




My little zoo-loving, face-painting twins. :)

I've been teaching for 19 years already.  The time has flown by.  Over the years, I was a classroom teacher to Kindergartners, First Graders and Second Graders.  I then went back to school to become a Reading Specialist.  This will be my 6th year in my Reading position.  I absolutely LOVE IT!  Everyday I enjoy waking up and heading into school to spend time with my students and colleagues.  In regards to blogging, my journey has just begun.  My very first post took place on July 1, 2014!




THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

 Our lake house & pontoon boat, family & friends, pretzels, chips & guacamole, park-hopping with my kids & husband, reading blogs for classroom ideasStarbucks' Carmel Frappuccino, Target One Spot, exercising, relaxing in the sun 


 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?

Many years ago, I was a part-time personal trainer to supplement my income when I first started teaching.  Of course, that was pre-kids & busy schedules.  I guess, I'd become a personal trainer full-time.  I'm a huge fan of exercise and eating healthy. :)


THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.

Organized--Outgoing--Optimistic

FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"



Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?

Most definitely my grandparents- the ones I've met and, especially, my grandfather I've never met...


Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?

Life and Literacy Loving Gal :) 

 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?

 I would love to time travel in the same way as the movie About Time with Rachel McAdams.  What if every moment in life came with a second chance?  Hmmm, pretty crazy thought! :) 





Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?



Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

 "You've Got the Love" by Florence and the Machine



 
 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

I'm definitely a morning person! During the school year, I start my bedtime routine at 8:30pm, so I'm hopefully sleeping by 9pm.  I'm then up by 5am before the kids get up to have "Mama-time". During the summer, I tend to go to bed a bit later, but so do the kids, so I still get my early morning time alone to enjoy the peace and quiet...and get the worm!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

This question is somewhat ironic for me.  I opened my TPT Shop only two weeks ago, but just YESTERDAY, I downloaded 16 products I've worked on over the summer.  I must say I love ALL of them, only because I never dreamed of opening my own store. :)   


Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 

Joel Osteen is my favorite motivational speaker. :)




Well, there's a little bit about me.  Link up with Stephanie so I can learn all about you!

  5. Colleen,

    Congrats on starting your blog and your TPT store! That is so exciting! I am a reading interventionist in my district....which I am sure is a very similar position to your reading specialist position. I can't wait to read more of your posts, as I am your newest follower!
