Meet The Teacher {Linky}

Hi everyone! I'm linking up with Stephanie from Falling Into First to introduce myself some! I'm excited to meet other teachers as well! Make sure you visit her blog to meet some more!

So, I'm a tad embarrassed. It took me a really long time to find a photo. I'm not kidding. I just spent the last thirty minutes scouring through the 1,577 photos on my phone. The whoknowshowmany photos on Facebook. And, look up there. I went with one where you can't see half my face. In all my pictures, I'm with someone. I feel bad cutting people out so I didn't. I don't take selfies (minus the one of me with my diploma... Holla!). So, that left me with this one from my sister's wedding. It's from last summer. I look the same mostly except that I'm letting my bangs grow out some. 

Anyway, hi! I'm Alisha. I'm a 27 year old teacher, girlfriend, daughter, and animal lover. This will be my fifth year teaching. I taught second grade the first three years and this will be my second year in the glorious first grade. I love first grade. My beautiful little family consists of my boyfriend Paul and our furbabies Jasper and Sadie. 

{This was taken on an extremely hot day at the zoo. Excuse the sweat.}
{These are our furbabies. Jasper is a five year old Lhasa Poo and Sadie is an 8 month old Papillon. She weighs 5 pounds. She's like air.}


These are a few of my favorite things...

Iced Coffee. Relaxing on the couch. Netflix. Tacos. Flair pens. The little things. Inspirational quotes. Walking the pups. Decorating my classroom. Antique shopping. Scarves. Thrift shopping. Sporting KC. Old Navy. Sadie's happy personality. Jasper's cuddles. Paul's kindness. Pumpkin Spice candles. Mashed potatoes. Sharpies. Target. Jamberry. Clipart. Children's books. Glittery things. Notepads. Hobby Lobby. Michaels. 

If you weren't a teacher, what would you be?

Easy. Veterinarian or a classroom designer. Could I be both? I love animals and want to save them all, but I also love the process of setting up a classroom. 

Three Little Words That Describe You...

Sweet. Caring. Organized.

Disclaimer: Paul said those. For the record, he said "beautiful" and I told him no, that does not work here. You can suck up to me when I am done blogging. Also, I think it's funny he said organized because uhh... we have tupperware lids falling all out of the wazoo in our pantry. 

Finish the sentence, "_____________, said no teacher ever."

I hate sharpies and fun school supplies.

It's your birthday and you can invite anyone (dead or alive) to the party. Who are you inviting?

The entire Friends cast. Sorry. I'm sure I was supposed to pick just one, but let's face it... You can't have on member from the Friends cast and no one else. But, to be even pickier, I want each six of them to actually be their characters. I don't want Jennifer Aniston. I want Rachel. No Matt LeBlanc. I want Joey to come straight up to me and say, "How you doin'?" and I want Chandler to ask me, "Could you be any more awesome?" I also want Ross to bore me with dinosaur talk and Monica to clean my apartment. Oh, and Phoebe to sing me Smelly Cat.
I really don't think that's asking too much.

I mean, really.

You get to pick one superpower. What is it?

Teleport in a super quick fashion.
What's your favorite quote or saying?

Yay! Kid pres 
 If you had to sing one song on American Idol, what would it be?

"Stay" by Sugarland, but I would need my bestie Kaitlin with me and American Idol would need to be filming us in the car. We like to put on concerts together in the car.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Can I be a morning person without an alarm? I love when I can wake up early and get things done, but I don't want an alarm. No thanks.

What is your favorite resource you have created in your TPT shop?
 My team and I just printed all the goodies from this pack and we are ready to use them come the first day of school... Which is Monday! Eeek!

Share something we might not know about you.

I have an obsession with decorating our bookcase in our home.

  1. Love your kid president quote! Also, I think you made a great choice in the friends cast. That is one of my all time favorite shows and I still can watch it on cable and laugh even though I know what's going to happen next!

    1. Definitely! I've watched every episode at least a gazillion and one times! :)

  2. So after reading all about you, It's pretty safe to say you are a missing sister of mine. We are all obsessed with Friends and I would save every animal on the planet :) Also, your picture hunt made me laugh out loud! You are too funny :)


    1. Ha, Erin I love it!! So fun to find people you have so much in common with! Friends is the absolute best show on the planet! I can't trust a person who doesn't like Friends.

  3. It was great "meeting" you, Alisha! I LOVE Kid President! I don't have any pictures of me either, it took forever to find one. Good luck this school year!


    1. Good luck to you as well, Stacia! Thank you!!

  4. Can I come to your F.R.I.E.N.D.S. birthday party? Pretty please??? Seriously, you cracked me up and I think we might be kindred spirits. It took me forever and a day to search for photos until I finally decided to use the same one that's on my blog. Sigh. My boy picked my three words also...except the third I had to omit. He didn't say beautiful, he said seductive. Ha! I said 1. That would not work and 2. I'm glad I can seduce someone with my awkwardness!
    Short and Sassy Teacher
