Alisha {The Bubbly Blonde Teacher}

Woozers....Followin' that pick-up drivin, high heel wearin' Texan is rough work!  Can she grab your attention with her writing or what?!  My name is Alisha and I'm the blogger over at The Bubbly Blonde Teacher
The Bubbly Blonde

It's introduction time!  This was my idea for all of the amazing authors to do a little ditty about themselves.  But now that it is super late and my bubble-ness is wearing off,   I'm wondering why I brought up this idea!  No nap today=one tired summer teacher! {What will I do when school starts?!}

Here goes nothing.

Unmarried, mother of two fur babies. I'm the middle child of 3.  My siblings are two of my best friends.  We take vacations together, hang out together, oh and I live with that sister of mine.  We hear a lot of comments that its weird that we are soo close.  But that doesn't mean we don't butt heads once in a while!

I'm headed into my 6th year of teaching.I've been teaching the lovely second graders for 5 years. My first year was in 3rd grade and I was terrified.Cursive and this chick do not get a long!  I'm a printer or a mixer.

I'm an avid reader.  If I start a book, it has to be finished.I've been known to rig my Ipad to stand up as I'm getting ready for school.

I've been obsessed with crayons, markers, paper, scissors, etc for all of my life.  The best Christmas gifts were gifts that allowed me to get creative, messy, decorative, and drive my mom crazy!
Things haven't changed since then.  A container full of crayons I had growing up are   currently still being used in my classroom.

I try hard to stay ultra organized in all areas of my life,  but I fail at it here and there.  Then I try again and again. 
One day....I'll get it.

If you are a follower of my blog, you know I could keep going and going.  So let's get the show on the road and get to the super best part of this post!  The exclusive freebie I've created for you.

This little ditty is all about "How to be a Bucket Filler!" 
Building classroom community from day one is a must!
