Meet The Teacher! Linky Party!

I love this week long linky party from Blog Hoppin'!

1.  I'm a tomboy. I love the outdoors and not the relaxing at the beach kind of outdoors. I'm talking about the getting muddy and extreme! I love going 4x4ing with my hubby, dad, and brother. So much fun heading out into the mountains riding on the narrow cliffs and speeding down some crazy hills.

2.  I'm addicted to traveling. I really have a problem and should seek help for this wanderlust bug that has bitten me! I just can't seem to stop! I have so much curiosity for the world around me whether it be out of the country, state, or local. There is so much out there to be discovered and I want to experience it all. This affliction got started 10 years ago with my first adventure to Europe. Since January of this year, I have been fortunate enough to visit the United Arab Emirates, Oregon, New Jersey, and in the fall I shall explore Kentucky!! The photo is of an elementary school in the United Arab Emirates. I was such an honor to spend the day with them!

3.  I HATE shopping. There is nothing worse than shopping. Ugh...I guess that goes back to my tomboy roots. I only go shopping when there is a purpose...groceries, new pants, etc. Even then I am in and out. 

4.  I have my motorcycle licence. I must admit that I kept renewing my permit for years before I actually went in and took the test for my class M license. There is nothing better than riding on an open country rode with my Vespa.

5.  I want to move out of the country.  My husband has family in Germany and Slovenia and I would love to move out there! What and adventure that would be. But, for right now his career keeps us here in CA. You never know.... The photo is of Piran one of my favorite places in Europe.

6.  My boys are my life! When I say boys, I am of course talking about my cute little Doxies Hans and Buster. Who knew an animal could steal your heart! Nothing beats a rough day like coming home to my babies.

7.  I'm heading into my 7th year of teaching. I thought 7 years was quite a milestone...that is until today. During our PD the teachers introduced themselves and the majority of teachers at my new school all have an average of 11 to 12 years of teaching experience. A few amazing teachers are in the 20th and 30th plus years! 

8.  I'm married!  My husband and I are coming up on our 5 year anniversary! Although, we've been together for 12 years. We met through a mutual friend and the rest is history.

9.  I practice yoga and aerial arts.  I've been practicing yoga for 3 years now. I initially got into it to help relieve some stress. It worked and I became hooked. This year a friend of mine introduced me to the aerial arts (think Cirque Du Soleil...when the girls or guys are hanging from the silk in the air). I took some time off this summer for various reasons and will be getting back into next week! It is the best workout ever!

10. Tomorrow is the first day of school! Tomorrow I start the next phase in my teaching adventure. I'm excited to be at my new school. Everyone has been so warm and welcoming. I can't wait to meet my 5th graders tomorrow.

  1. Hope you have a wonderful year Chelsea! I too am a tomboy. I've tried to be girly but it just ends bad. :)

    Fun In 5th

  2. WOW! Aerial Arts looks fun and scary all at the same time. I'm scared of heights. An inch off the ground is too high for me! Lol!
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

  3. Alison believe it or not, I am also afraid of heights! This is helping me overcome that! Although, when I climb to the top of the silk and look down I get really freaked out!
