Meet The Teacher {Linky Party}

I am so so so excited to be joining in on Falling Into First's Meet The Teacher Linky Party! I am brand new to the blogging world! I just started a few weeks ago and I am LOVING every minute of this exciting experience! I have meet so many nice and creative fellow teachers through my blog, FB, and TpT!!!!  When I saw this Linky Party, I thought{Oh! Oh! Me Me!} I need to be a part of this! Being new to the blogging world I knew there was no better way to introduce myself then to link up! So here I go....

My name is Kristen Quigley and I have been teaching for 5 years. I have moved around a lot and taught every thing from preschool to third grade in private and public schools. This year I landed my Dream Job! I will be teaching Kindergarten in a public school system, very close by to where I live. No more hours of commuting far for work! YAY!!! I am so thrilled to be in my new school district! IT is an amazing place and I could not be more excited to start! I am spending all summer preparing for the start of a fabulous new year!

This is a picture of me and my wonderful husband, Mike. We will be married 1 year on September 21st! I can not believe it has already been a year! It went by so quickly. Our wedding was a real fairy tale. Just thinking about it makes me smile. Mike is the reason I landed my dream job! He pushed me to take a risk and leave my public preschool job that was over an hour away for a maternity leave position the was MUCH closer to our house. VERY RISKY and I worried the whole time that I would end up jobless! But it paid off because they hired me for a full time, contracted position starting this Fall!

This is our dog Dexter. He is just the cutest thing ever! I get to spend my summer off with this guy! He has so much energy and always keeps us busy. I spend most of my summer days at my parents pool where he loves to play in his sprinkler and I blog! :)

Now its time for the fun Q&A Session!!!

Q: These are a few of my favorite things…

Dollar Tree, Target, J Crew, Nail Polish, Alex and Ani Bracelets, and Ice Cream!

Q: If you weren’t a teacher, what would you want to be?

I love anything to do with the ocean so I would have to say a Marine Biologist 

Q: Three little words that describe you.

Creative. Obsessive. Girlie

Q: Finish this sentence, “___________________, said no teacher EVER!!”

"Yes I have tons of time to drink water and go to the bathroom during the day!" said no teacher EVER!! 

Q: It’s your birthday and you can invite anyone {dead or alive} to the party. Who are you inviting?

Jimmy Fallon... He is so funny!

Q: If someone wrote a book about your life, what would be the title?

Confessions of a Teacher/Shopaholic *LoL*

Q: You get to pick one superpower. What is it?

I would want to be able to read the minds of people and animals

"Q: What’s your favorite quote or saying?

"It takes a BIG heart to shape LITTLE minds!"

Q: If you HAD to sing one song on American Idol, what would it be?

"Chicken Fried" - Zac Brown Band (I am not a good singer so I would want to sing something that is fun!) I love country music!

Q: Are you a morning person or a night owl? 

I am a morning person I usually go to bed very early except for the summer time!

Q: What’s your favorite resource that you’ve created in your TPT shop?

Since I am a newbie I do not have that many products to pick from but  would have to say that my favorite product so far are my Letter Watches!


Q: Share something we might not know about you!

I can not drink caffeine! No coffee for me! Only Decaf Tea in the morning. If I drink caffeine I get all jittery and am bouncing all over the place! Even if I have it in the morning it takes me forever to fall asleep at night!

  I hope you enjoyed learning about me :)
