All About This Kinder Teacher!

Hey Friends! I am excited to join the fun over at the Kinder Tribe today.

The K teachers are doing a linky to get to know one another!

This fall will be my 13th year teaching K! It doesn't feel that long that is for sure.  I have also taught 1st, 3rd and even did a few year in an admin role but, there is NO place like Kindergarten. I am so excited for this upcoming year.

A few year ago my feet started giving me some issues. Probably cause we are on our feet and floor all day long. I then discovered these shoes
                                                                  Sketchers Go Walk

They are seriously the most comfotable shoes I have ever worn! I wear them EVERY day and it feels like I am walking on a cloud. My feet have not hurt since then :)

                              This picture says it all..... I LOVE my coffee! Hot, cold, iced doesn't matter to me.  Don't laugh but some days I can't wait to get up and drink that first sip of coffee...yea I may have a slight problem.  ;)

Ask any teacher what their favorite supply is and many of them will answer Flair pens. They are the best thing EVER!

That picture just puts a smile on my face! I may have quite a few collections all over my classroom, in my bag and at home. You never know when you might need

A few year ago this book was part of our reading series. After I read it the first time it made me laugh so much! My students had so much fun reading it too. When I left that school, I found that book to add to my library and I read it every year! It is still a hit with the kids. :)

There are so many amazing K teacher bloggers out there! Simply Kinder and The Kindergarten Connection are among my favorites. They have SOO many amazing ideas!

  1. Caffeine and Flair Pens= teacher MUSTS!!! Haha my first year I was SHOCKED by how much kinders grow! It is such an amazing thing to be a part of! We are blessed :) Thanks for linking up with us!!!!

  2. Carrie, you've been teaching kindergarten for a while! I'll be looking forward to learning some new kinder things from you at KinderTribe as I start my first year in kindergarten after 15 years in grades 2-5!

  3. What are those shoes called? I knew a teacher who used to work in heels (and I mean like super high stilettos) all the time! I could never do that! My feet hurt even in flats sometimes! haha When I'm feeling lazy or my feet are sore my go to shoes are my TOMS (spring/summer) or UGGS (fall/winter)! I know a lot of people think UGGS are UGG-ly but I can't deny their comfiness!!

    1. Those are Sketchers Go Walk. I may have them in a variety of colors ;)

  4. Are those Sketcher Go Walks? I found a pair of Sketchers I just LOVE. It's like being in slippers all day!.

  5. I just bought some Sketchers memory foam shoes... I can't handle the flats anymore! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Simply Kinder and Kindergarten Connection. They are both so practical and helpful!

    I feel like we should be getting some sort of compensation for all this flair pen advertising :)

  10. Hi! I'm your newest follower! Love your bright and colorful blog! :) I have a pair of sketchers go walk mary janes because I thought they would be great to have since I am pregnant, but they give me bad blisters on the backs of my heels if I don't wear band aids. :( But otherwise, I agree they are comfy!


  11. I really want a pair of those Sketchers! They look cute and comfy! I am IN LOVE with your adorable blog! I can't wait to see what you have in store this year!!

  12. Ahhh I forgot about Mrs. Wishy Washy!!! I LOVE that book!!! I also have a love affair with flair pens! We have all put them on our list...great minds ha!!

  14. Carrie,
    I LOVE Flair pens too - I should buy stock haha. Love your cute blog, happy to have found you!

  15. I love Mrs. Wishy Washy too. My students go to Tradewinds Farm to visit Mrs. Wishy Washy & her animals. The storyteller really looks like Mrs. Wishy Washy & reads them the story in an old farm house. It my favorite field trip.

  16. I am so surprised by how many people are so obsessed with Flair Pens! LOL! I personally prefer Uniball Rollers in color...I can't live without them! :)
