I am Kristin. I am an almost-27 year old teacher. However, I chose to not renew my contract last May, because the drive was killing me (an hour each way). I taught at a Title-1 urban elementary school in southwest Atlanta, and although there were challenges, it was a great learning and growing experience. Unfortunately, I have not been able to secure a job since (due to the economy..getting a job is like auditioning for American Idol), so I am substitute teaching for two counties and working on my TPT store, while actively pursuing interviews/jobs. I still keep up with the latest innovations and techniques, and common-core related things going on though, because I am very antsy to get back into my own classroom.

Anywho, I am very close to my family. I love them, and we all live within an hour of each other. I have three siblings, and my brother and his wife just blessed everyone with a precious baby boy, so now I am an aunt!
I love my friends, although I just have a few...they are friends I've had through thick and thin. My best friend and I have been friends for 14 years!

We do not have kids (yet), but we do have the most precious rescue dog in the world, Pawley, who we adopted last September. I love him. He is adorable.
Aside from creating teaching materials and resources, and blogging, I love:
traveling! I want to visit everywhere :)
|cupcakes and toppers I made for my husband's 30th bday!|
all food basically!
working out to my fitness dvds (I am a big Jillian Michaels fan).
Spending time with those that I love!
So, that is me in a nutshell ! I hope I did not bore you too much !
