Meet the Teacher!

My bloggy BFF is doing a fun Teacher linky!!!  And I'm playing along, too :)

If you want to link up, check out sweet Cara at The First Grade Parade.

This is me.  Babbling Abby.  Or just Abby.  Abs if we're thisclose. I love my family, God, teaching, Diet Coke, and finding your old pair of designer jeans at Goodwill.  I long for dinner and drinks with my girls, springtime when local neighborhoods open up their yards and garages to sell me their cast-offs, and for summer nights up north in Michigan. 

B and I have been married for almost five years and have one little pumpkin named Beckham.  We're amidst a kitchen remodel and always DIY.  I want to have another baby soon-ish.

I graduated from the University of Kentucky (C-A-T-S!) with a bachelor's in psychology, and then went back to school for a second bachelor's in elementary education.  I'm currently pursuing a master's in education with a concentration on administration.  I graduate in December (PTL!). 

This is my 3rd year teaching - I taught half-day kindergarten for two years and looped this year to be a first grade teacher.  I {heart} first grade.  It's my fav and I hope I stay there for awhile.

Q: What's the best adviced you ever received?

Q: Now, tell us one thing about yourself:
A: Abby isn't my real name.  It's a nickname for Abigail, which is my middle name.  I kept all of my names when I got married inluding my 2 first last names (long story!), so my legal name is W_______ Abigail S________ K________  M___________.  Ridiculous, no?!
