Meet Mrs. Wheeler!

I am linking up with Cara over at the The First Grade Parade.

Hello! I am Mrs. Wheeler.  I teach first grade and have for almost 8 years now.  I LOVE MY JOB! I love the kids, my boss, the staff, and all the things that come with teaching.  OBSESSED! I have been on virtually every committee possible in the past 7 years.  I am currently a Mentor for a new teacher, a cooperating teacher for a student teacher (ps she's the best ST ever), on my building's OIP committee, and the list goes on....I do need to try to cut back in the near future! I spend waaaayyy too much time doing things for school, but I view it as more of a hobby than anything else.  I have been married to a great husband for 5 years.  We have lots of fun traveling and hanging out together.
 Here we are in Nashville, TN.  We went there during winter break. do you like my Photoshop techniques?
 Here I am at a Lions hubby is obsessed.  I just like the food and the shopping that goes along with a road trip!

 Here's a bit about me:

Q: What are your hobbies?
A: Teaching, shopping, reading, blogging, movies

A: My parents dying.

Q: When you're on vacation, where do you like to go?
A: Bradenton, Florida to my parents 2nd home, OC California to my in-laws home (man, I have some great connections, huh?), Hawaii-my husband and I spent two and a half weeks there for our honeymoon, and I am really itching to get back (well, I have been since the day I left!)....Really I will love anywhere with a beach.  I am a sun-worshiper.

Q: What's the best adviced you ever received?
A: Don't forget you will always have your family.

I would be a professional organizer too. I think my favorite part about my new job this year was going through all of the previous teacher's old materials,and organizing so they had function! Love your blog :)

Found your blog from the Proteacher website and I was curious to see where exactly you teach. I also follow Babbling Abby and her new one - Inspired Apple. I saw a post you made about teaching in Dayton. I also teach in Dayton! How small of a world is it!!!?? I promise I'm not an online crazy person, but I'd like to see if we are teaching neighbors!
