Hi!  My name is Angela.  I'm 31, a girlfriend, a fur mommy, teacher, and, of course, teacher blogger.  This year will be my seventh year in the classroom, though my first year was only a half year.  I have always taught grade 4, though this past year was a 4/5 split.

 This is Ryan and I.  We have been together since grade 12 - 2002.  Yeah, 14 years!  I can't believe how fast time has gone by.  We are from Powell River, but I moved first to Prince George for university and he followed.  From there, we both made the big move to Fort St. John in November 2008.  Although we are far from home (takes about 21 hours driving), and miss it often, we do really like it up here!

These are our furbabies.   The black one is a lab cross, and his name is Steve.  Steve is getting older and a bit grey.  He's 10.  We "stole" him from my brother.  (Actually, Adam moved in with us, and when he moved out, I wouldn't let him take his dog.)  The blonde one is named Mack.  He came from the SPCA and we are told he is a Siberian Husky, Akita, Chow cross.  I'm sure there are many other things in there as well.  He's 7.  They are both little stinkers and do all sorts of naughty things like dig holes and sneak garbage, but we love them dearly. 

This is my favourite picture of Speckles!  He is a leopard gecko.  Originally, I purchased Speckles to be a class pet.  In fact, he got his name through class vote.  He was 4 when I bought him and the previous owner didn't give him a name - can you believe that?!?!  Speckles became ill (he's all good now!) and so he came home to be cared for.  It's not easy getting a gecko to open his mouth to syringe in medicine folks!  I've come to love him so much, he stays at home.  

I opened my Teachers Pay Teachers store in the fall of 2012.  It has been a growing passion of mine ever since.  I love the opportunities it has provided me with to connect to other teachers!  I tend to create things I need for my classroom, and sometimes things friends might ask for.  I also like to create classroom decor, because, everyone needs a pretty room!  My passions are pretty apparent in my store: hands-on science lessons, task cards, and organizational items.

Licorice.  Chai lattes.  Pajama days.  Netflix.  Bright colours.  Tea.  Go mugs.  My classroom.  Scrapbooking.  Family.  Pictures.  Blogging and blog stalking.  Facebook.  Mono multi glue.  Flip flops.  The beach.

Organized.  Creative.  Loud.

I love 80s movies.  I have seen Grease, Footloose, and Dirty Dancing countless times.  I probably watch each of them 6 times a year, minimum.  Ferris Bueller, Gremlins, Back to the Future...... soooo many good ones!

  1. What a beautiful blog! It is SO you. Reading through your 'Meet the Teacher' was a lovely little bit of nostalgia. :) Your students are a lucky bunch to have such a creative and dedicated teacher.
