Meet the Teacher

Although school doesn't technically start for a few more weeks, I am now starting to panic!  I walked into my room this week and spent two days getting practically nothing done.  I have to say I felt a bit overwhelmed by all of the decorating I would like to do.  And it doesn't help that when I'm at home, Pinterest just happens to show me more ideas of all of the AWESOME things I could do!!!  So to procrastinate further, I decided to join the "Meet the Teacher Blogger" linky from Falling Into First. ;)

Hello!  My name is Ashley Copeland and I have been teaching for four years.  I've taught a year of second grade, a year of kindergarten, and two years of preschool.  This year, I will be returning to preschool with an awesome team of teachers that are passionate about working with young children and engaging them with creative activities based on their interests!  



I have been married to my high school sweetheart for four years, and am a mother to a sweet and adorable two year old, Noah.  Life is always an adventure!  The pic of my husband is from our trip to Gatlinburg this summer to revisit where we got married and to go to the Wonderworks Museum.  I would definitely recommend it for the whole family if you're ever in the area!!!

 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

Fall (the colors, pumpkins, cooler weather, sweaters, rain...everything!!!)
Dancing
Gardening
Scrapbooking
Crafting
Drawing (pencil)
Exercising
Coffee

 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?

An ecologist working and studying animals in national and state parks.  I'd love to advocate for endangered animals, since one of my favorite animals is the Siberian Tiger.

THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.

Passionate, Creative, Loving.

 
FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"

"We're ecstatic that this year our program is going to get audited...said no teacher EVER!!"
Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?

Twitch and Alex...just to see them dance the "Outta Your Mind" routine again from So You Think You Can Dance.  I could watch them dance all day!

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

 Ashley in Wonderland 

 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
ICE!!!  I'd love to have control over water in all forms!

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

"She is clothed in strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future." 
~ Proverbs 31:25

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

 "You Were Meant for Me"
~Jewel

 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

Totally a morning person.  I get my best stuff done in the first two or three hours of the day, after I've had my coffee of course!  As a rule, I don't usually do any work after dinner.  That's reserved for family time.
 
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

I created a Beach Theme Clip Chart to match my theme this year.  It comes with calendars so your students can record where their behavior was for the day.  It's flexible so you can include all pieces of the chart or mix and match as you like, and includes several size options!



Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 

I draw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  I love to draw, and I draw and shade with pencil.  My husband requested I draw him the Turtles for his "man cave," so I delightfully drew them for him!


Now it's your turn!  Visit Falling into First to participate in the linky and get to know some fellow bloggers.
