Meet The Teacher Linky

Hey all! 
I haven't blogged in awhile, life has been hectic. But tomorrow is my first "official" day back so I figured I should get this in since I just hit 100 bloglovin' followers - Thanks y'all! :) 
I have linked up with Falling Into First for Meet the Teacher! I love this idea, so thank YOU! 

So, hey y'all! I am Cassie Thomas! I just turned 25 on August 5 and am entering my 2nd year teaching. Before this I was a Pre-K assistant, as well as a head start teacher. BUT -- teaching is my calling and I am BEYOND passionate about what I do. Last year I taught kindergarten and this year I'm teaching ELA 3rd grade. Could NOT be more excited!! :) 

This is my wonderful husband, my all time best friend. We were married on October 19, 2013 and started dating October 19, 2007. It's been an amazing, wild, crazy, happy, emotional ride together. 
Here's 2007

and here's our wedding day last year. 

We have a beautiful little fur baby named Lyla. We share the SAME birthday, and she just turned 5! 

These are a few of my favorite things...
 Sleeping. Reading to learn and reading for enjoyment. Any body of water, at all. Going to concerts. The music I listen to. Watching crime shows, PLL, Big Bang Theory, random things. 

If you weren't a teacher, what would you want to be?
I have no idea. I have never thought about it. This has been my dream since I was a child. 

Three Little Words That Describe You.
Lover. Passionate. Happy. 

Finish the Sentence, "_______, said no teacher ever!!"
Please pull me out of class every day for meetings, said no teacher ever. ;)

It's your birthday and you can invite anyone (dead or alive) to the party. Who are you inviting?
 Alive - My family, my best friends, and all of my blogger buddies :) I would want American Aquarium and Turnpike Troubadours to play :) 
Dead - My grandparents. 

If someone wrote a book about your life, what would be the title?
And Just Like That, Her Day Was Over. 

You get to pick one superpower. What is it?
FLYING! Hands down! 

What's your favorite quote or saying?

If you had to sing one song on American Idol, what would it be?
I can not carry a tune, I'm 75% deaf in my left ear (fun fact), so I have no idea what I sound like... haha. If I had to pick one, Danny's Song! 

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Depends. A lot of both. I love mornings when I had had enough sleep and my coffee. Right now I'm awake and kickin'. I get a burst of energy around 11pm. Not good.      

What's your favorite resource that you've created in your TPT shop?
I create so much for my own classroom so I love majority of it. But my all time favorite would be my sight word bundle because I used this with my kinder kiddos last year and I just loved how it turned out with them. They LOVED doing this and I was able to work with them and talk to them about each word. 

Share something we might not know about you...
I was adopted by my grandparents, but they're mom and dad. Always. 
Anything else, just ask me! I'll answer em all :) 

I loved this linky so much! Go join up! 

Thanks Stephanie! :)

  1. LOVE ME SOME GOOD PRETTY LITTLE LIARS!! All of my 6th graders watch it too... haha

  2. Oh, PLL! MY FAVORITE! I knew I liked you!
    Missing Tooth Grins

  3. Haha, I love sleep and crime shows too! :)

    My husband and I were having a conversation about what I would do if I weren't a teacher (because last year was a difficult group) and it was hard to come up with ideas because, I agree with you, teaching has always been what i wanted to do.

    My husband is completely deaf in his left ear, so he usually drives and sits at the farthest left seat possible. He hates situations where someone will sit on his left. How does that work for you and your husband?

    I'm glad I dropped by to learn about even more that we have in common, friend.
