Meet the Teacher Blogger {#teacherbloggers}

Hi there!! I'm Stephanie and I blog here at 3rd Grade Thoughts. I have been teaching for nearly ten years, the majority of which have been in third grade. I took last year off from teaching to stay home with our toddler daughter and am heading back this year in a half-time role teaching Reading & Writing in 3rd grade (#dreamjob). I think my husband is as excited as I am-- I need to be in a classroom with littles :) Blogging and creating are my favorite hobbies as well as cooking and playing with my daughter. We live in Colorado with our chocolate lab and we absolutely love it here! There's hiking, camping, beautiful views, and wonderful people.

Q& A Session

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
I love my little girl, traveling, coffee, new shoes, singing with my daughter, cooking, blogging, manicures, quotes, sleeping in, my amazing friends, anything teal or chevron, and big cities.

IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
I would love to be a travel writer or a chef. 

THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
loyal, funny, energetic

FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________, SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"
I don't need any more Sharpies or Post-its, I have plenty!

IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?
The cast of the Golden Girls, Brené Brown, and Maya Angelou

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

YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
I'm a big fan of Mary Poppins' "snap to pick up a room" power. I would be forever indebted if that showed up around laundry day in this house!

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?
"Keep Calm & Carry On" (and every possible variation)

IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
"Let It Go" ... for which I would immediately be eliminated, but my daughter thinks I sing perfectly ;)

ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
Night owl! Some of my best thinking/creating/brainstorming happens at 2am, so I always leave a pen and paper or my phone near my bed to make sure I jot it down. As for being a morning person, the phrase "Coffee before talkie" is about as accurate as it gets.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?
I love my QR Critters for Fiction & Nonfiction Reading. I am a big fan of making something once and being able to use it all year long. This packet is a great way to incorporate technology and have your students practice a wide variety of reading responses for all types of genres. Find out more on my blog HERE or in my TpT Store HERE.

SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU!
I have traveled to every continent except for Australia and Antarctica. My favorite spot? Peru!
