Flying into First Grade is back with her Let's Get Acquainted link up! Here goes this week...

1.  What made you decide to become a teacher?
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a child. I can't remember when I first decided I wanted it, but I do remember writing "Future Teacher" as my occupation in my first grade yearbook. I used to play teacher with my siblings and neighborhood kids out in the backyard for hours during the summer. I'd stand in front of them and talk and they would have to do "worksheets" I made. I even begged and begged for a teacher gradebook, but my parents wouldn't give in to get me one. Instead, I used graph paper and write it up like it was a gradebook. I was pretty corrupt though- I remember giving my sister an A because she brought me some jello. :)

2. What has been your most rewarding experience as a teacher?
I think the little moments all add up to one big giant rewarding moment. When the kids that struggle finally get an 80 on a test, or when your students are so engaged they don't want to end the lesson. When they tell you they'll miss you at the end of the year, or when you hear them talking about something you taught them to another student. There isn't anything better. 

3. If you were not a teacher, what would you be?
Oh, man. I really am not sure- I've never even considered it. I genuinely have always known my path in life led to me being a teacher. I am not sure anything else would "fit" like teaching does! I sat and thought, trying to think of SOMETHING and there isn't anything else I'd want to do. I think I could get by working in an office, doing something or other- but it just wouldn't be right for me. 


  1. Hello again!

    Our two and three answers are pretty much exactly the same (except I've done the office thing and know I'd go crazy)... my ONE other was being a mum... there's nothing else apart from teaching that would even come close (apart from being a mum of course)

    Pretty awesome to know we've found what we love!

  2. I love that your sister got an "A" from bringing your jello! That is fabulous! I wonder if you told your classroom this story if they would ALL come in with jello the very next day! :)

    Glad I found your blog as I am a first grade teacher always looking for new ideas! PS I love your blog name-I am always often in need of caffeine too! :) I am your newest follower!
