Weekend Warrior Linky 3-2-1 Bio

I couldn't resist linking up with the Weekend Warriors for this 3-2-1 Bio linky. Check out what others are posting at Primarily Speaking (and link up too!).
 This linky is based on the popular 3-2-1 method you can also use in your classroom. First up, 3 things about me as a teacher:

1. I get bored easily so I like to change things up quite often. Don't get me wrong, I live and die by my classroom routines and procedures. My classroom runs like a well oiled machine (by about October), which frees up my creative side to bring in fun lessons, activities, games, centers, and new things to keep the kids on their toes.
2. I'll try just about anything techy. I just spent two days at a tech PD last week and I have a few more planned for the summer.
3. I'm so lucky to be team teaching with 2 amazing coworkers this year and I will only have to teach math this year! Woohoo! I love teaching math because even though there is usually only one correct answer, I love teaching different ways to get there. I didn't love math growing up (I'd rather read), but now I prefer to teach it over any other subject.

1. This overlaps with the teacher in me. I have trouble just sitting still and doing nothing. I must have something to do, read, or think about. My mind is constantly 3 steps ahead of what I'm currently doing, which can cause me to be somewhat impatient with myself and others. I can't stand to not feel productive and get things done. I can relax, but it is only when I'm reading.
2. I know most people don't like to clean, but I really really really hate it. The problem is that I like living in a clean house. Disorganization drives me crazy. I just don't want to be the one to do the actual cleaning. When my kids were very young I taught them how to do many chores around the house and now we clean the house as a team. All of us just work really hard for a couple of hours on a Sunday and get it done. I feel much better if I'm not the only one cleaning. It also helps if I have some good 80's music blasting on Pandora. 
My bucket list is pretty huge, but my #1 thing would be to travel through Italy eating fresh pasta and anything else they want to put in front of me. My grandmother is Italian and she recently taught me how to make pasta, but I want MORE! I want to go to Italy like Liz in Eat, Pray, Love and just taste everything! In order to justify eating all that pasta, I will walk and walk and walk amongst the beautiful buildings, museums, and sights.

  1. I crave change too! I feel like I am always changing up the way I do things. Where did you do your tech PD? I am interested in PD in this area, but my district doesn't offer it. Thank you so much for sharing! ~Meghan (Meghan's Pad)

  2. Thanks so much for linking up with us, Suzy! I love to teach math too! It's definitely my favorite subject. My brain never turns off either! It's both a blessing and a curse. Haha! Cleaning is just the worst. Truly. I hope you do get to eat your way through Italy one of these days!

  3. Suzy, I love that your grandma taught you how to make pasta! BRAVO!
    Travelling to Italy was a dream of mine for over a decade....And then last year my husband and I spent 2 weeks for our honeymoon in Venice, Rome, Florence, and Capri Island. It was breath-takingly beautiful and we ate all day long!!! I left a piece of my heart in Rome...... Can't wait to go back again. And you are going to fall in love too! Fingers crossed you get there soon!
    Thanks so much for linking up with the Weekend Warriors. We hope to see you again next month!
