Meet the Teacher Linky



Hola! My name is Evelyn and I'm back blogging. Thanks to Becca from Jumping Jax Designs for my redesign. Loving it and I'm ready to start my dash to blogging, creating and making new teacher buds!

I taught 1st Grade for 12 years with a splash of Kindergarten. This year I'm moving up to 2nd Grade. I will be teaching in a general ed class with an ESL cluster. But I did teach Dual Language for 8 years. I love my school district where I work (talk about a diverse community). I'm a transplanted Manhattanite to the suburbs of New York. 

I'm a wife to a fabulous hubby who always keeps things interesting and a mom to two beautiful young ladies. So yes we are NEW empty nesters and enjoying each other again. 


Q. A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS
I love to teach, yoga is my zen and running has become a recent passion, chatting with friends. Love to travel and finding the perfect beach is a plus! Bags, I love bags everything from Timbuk2 to pretty satchels. 


Q. IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?Something outdoors and environmental, NO OFFICE JOB EVER! I would also like to teach in another country some day.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?
I only have a few items but I love my File Folder Themed Vocabulary Words, my students love to use these lil' dictionaries especially my ELL's and they are FREE.

I LOVE TV. I always have the telly on the minute I walk in the house. I guess even more so now that my house is so quiet with my girls out on their own.
