Let's Get Acquainted Linky Party!

Hello Friends!  I'm linking up with Latoya Reed from Flying into First Grade for a fun linky party.  Head on over to check it out.  It's the Noun Game.  Here's how it works.  I explain my favorite person, place, thing, and animal.

Let's get started...

I would say my husband on this one.  He is so much fun to be around.  We are college sweethearts.  It's so nice to have another elementary school teacher in the house to share ideas.  We are complete I totally agree with the saying "Opposites Attract."  I'm pretty reserved, he's kinda loud. :)  I'm not always organized, and he is always organized.  He loves to be in front of a crowd and I'm quite content to be in the back of the room.  The list goes on and on.  I love Mr. Holland to death though.  He's a wonderful husband and father to our two little guys.  Here's a picture of us celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary.

Hands down....the public library.  I absolutely love this place.  So many books!  I am at the library at least 2-3 times per week either dropping off books or picking up reserves.  Love that place.  I love my class library as well and so do my second graders.  I am currently at about 450 books and it's still growing.  Here's a picture of part of it.

This is easy.  I am loving my iPad.  I don't know what I did before I got this thing.  I mean it's great!

I would have to say my favorite animal is an elephant.  I love seeing them at the zoo, especially the babies.  So cute!
That's it for me.  Thanks Latoya for this cute little linky and thank you for stopping by.

  3. I LOVE your classroom library! I have like... a tenth of that and half of those disappear each year! And how awesome to be married to another teacher. You two can talk about your days with each other and know the other actually gets it!

  4. I think it would be cool if my hubby were a teacher too! We would have the same breaks which is always an issue with his job. I just found you through Flying into 1st Grade's Linky.


  5. I found you through a comment you left on Christina Bainbridge's blog. I am always on the look out for other second grade blogs. I'm your newest follower. My husband is also a teacher, but he teaches high school and doesn't care to go near a blog! I'm anxious to follow your blog.

  6. How fun that you and your husband are both teachers. I found you through the linky party. I am a new follower.

  7. Found your blog through TPT. We are your newest followers. Do both of you teach at the same school? My sister and I teach at the same school and love it. Hop on over and check us out when you get a chance.
