Teacher Week: All About Me!

I just love teacher week! Be sure and join in the fun by linking up with us over at Blog Hoppin'!
Today's topic is all about me :) Here are my 10 random facts:
{1} I've taught 1st grade for 4 years and this year I'm transferring to 5th reading. I'm really excited to experience a new age group! You can read all about my 5th grade adventures on my new(ish) blog, Life in Fifth Grade

{2} I have recently become obsessed with Mindy Kaling. If you don't know who she is (shame on you!), she played Kelly Kapoor on The Office and now has her own show, The Mindy Project, which she also writes and produces. She is so funny! I just love her :)

{3} TV shows are my guilty pleasure. My favorites are: Gossip Girl (is Blake Lively not the most gorgeous girl? I would kill for her hair), Glee (I love Rachel Berry), the aforementioned The Mindy Project (my new favorite show!), and The Office (Is Jim Halpert not the cutest thing ever?)

{4} I can quote the movie Titanic in its entirety. I was in 5th grade when the movie came out, way back in 1997 and I was obsessed.

{5} I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. I've read the books countless times and love the movies. 

{6} While creating things for my classroom, I like to listen to the soundtrack from Wicked. Such a great musical. 

{7} I love watching beauty gurus on Youtube. My favorite is Missglamourazzi. She has wonderful makeup tricks and hair tutorials. 

{8} I have a personal/fashion blog: Southern Belle Inspired. Fashion is a huge part of my life and I like to talk about that, along with all other things southern, over there. 

{9} I am obsessed with Instagram. Follow me! msleslieann01

{10} My little Maltese, Reese (named after Reese Witherspoon) is so camera shy! I can hardly take her picture without her hiding her face. I have to sneak around with the camera and quickly snap a picture without making any noise. She's funniest little dog. :)

  1. I LOVE Mindy Kaling... just read her book, it is seriously the funniest thing I have ever read. I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud. And we have all the same favorite shows- we must have the same sense of humor :)

  2. I love Gossip Girl!!! I don't know what to do this year. That was the highlight of my Monday

  3. Your puppy is precious! And I'm pretty sure I can quote Titanic in it's entirety as well! lol!

  4. I had to laugh when I read that about Titanic because it is one of my favorites as well! I did a whole unit on Titanic (the history) and it was so interesting for the kids to learn about that time period and what happened with the ship. It's good to teach what we are passionate about, right?? Too bad Leo couldn't show up for some lessons :)

  5. I love Harry Potter as well...and Wicked is my favorite musical! I think you'll love 5th...they are a lot more independent than firsties and you can get into some really good discussions and depth with them.
