Meet the Teacher Linky

I have my actual Meet the Teacher with my students in a week, but today, I'm linking up with Falling Into First for a virtual Meet the Teacher.


So, a little about me....I'm Shasta. I'm a recently turned 39, married 16 years wife to Cheney, momma to Taku the Jack Russell Terrier, and teacher of 14 years. I've taught grades 2-5, and even had a year as a Master Teacher/Coach last year.  I'm thankful to be headed into a class of 5th graders this year.  Out of all of my experiences, 5th grade is my absolute favorite to teach.



Cheney and I met in Alaska 17 years ago and have lived all across the US - Alaska, Seattle, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Tennessee.  Life has been an adventure for sure.  


A few of my favorite things:
The beach, Coastal South Carolina, Cannon Beach, Oregon, Sonic Cherry Coke, Cheeseburgers/Fries, Pizza, A good walk/run outside, books and more books, dogs, good naps, coffee all day long, pedicures, someone else washing my hair, binge watching Netflix.


IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
I would love to be a travel writer for a magazine like Coastal Living.  Staying in posh hotels, reviewing the service, hanging out on the beach and exploring coastal towns.  Would love it.

THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Driven, tender-hearted, guarded

FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"
I love writing report card comments, 

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

The Beatles, JFK, my grandparents, Heath Ledger, Jackie Kennedy

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

How to be too nice

YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?

the ability to stay awake all the time

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” 
― Mother Teresa

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

Hit Me With Your Best Shot - Pat Benatar
ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

Night Owl for sure.  There have been MANY all nighters this summer. 

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

I haven't created any products yet :(

SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU!

If I could live in any time period, I think it would be in the post WWII time period.  I love the fashions and there are just enough modern conveniences that life would be comfortable.  Give me a red lip and a swing dress any day with Victory Rolls in my hair.  


Can't the link to work on the image, so here is the link to Falling into First to meet other teacher bloggers.
