It's my most favorite time of the year...Teacher Week 2013 and today is Meet the Teacher. I always enjoy reading about everyone and getting to know you all. I get so consumed in your posts! ha Now, down to business. Brace yourself for a long post. I'm sorry! I got carried away! My name is Erin Eberhart and I live in Johnson City, Tennessee...which is right outside of Bristol (for all of you Nascar fans).
This is my 7th year teaching....6 of those years have been in Kindergarten and the other year in 3rd. Within 7 years: I have taught in 2 different school systems, 2 different grades, been at 3 different schools, and in 4 different classrooms. Um...yea....you do the math and figure that out! :) ha A lot of moving, boxes, and tears have gone into my career - but, I LOVE what I do! I was recently awarded Teacher of the Year for my school and received Teacher of the Year for my school system. I went on to regionals and placed runner up for the state of Tennessee.
I have a precious boyfriend who I've been with for "a good bit." ha That's for you Katie Mense!
We are crazy! ha But have so much fun. My sweet Will is an ICU nurse by day, but farmer by heart. He will so kill me for posting this.
This keeps life pretty busy. But, he loves it.
Can it get any cuter than this? Seriously!?!! This, my friends, would be a holstein heifer. They would also be referred to as a milk cow! ha You didn't know you would get a lesson in farm, did ya?
I have a cutesy little family. Me, my Mom, Dad, sister, and brother in law. My sister and I are 12 months and 12 days apart (Mom wanted twins)! She is my best friend and I love her dearly.
My sis, Emily, is
about to pop pregnant with my nephew - Jensen! I am over the top thrilled to be an aunt and cannot wait to spoil the little stinker. He will be the first grandchild on either side and is set to make is arrival on September 4th. Squeal!
In all of my spare time (hee hee) I love to take pictures. Here are a few I have taken of family and friends. I also run a little home based business and do some printing, personalizing, and invitations. This keeps me pretty busy, in addition to coaching cheer!
I don't sleep much or take care of myself if you must know. EEK! That is going to change this year. Operation eat better, join a gym, and lose weight is about to happen. ha ha Will someone hold me accountable? I also want to do better with blogging and posting units on TpT. I have like 5 things started that I have yet to finish! ha
I am a clogger for the Trailblazer Cloggers and have been dancing since the age of 6. I competed in pageants for a while as well, and now enjoy being a "has been beauty queen." I have judged several Miss America preliminaries (such as Miss Atlanta, Miss Bristol, and more) and serve as a emcee for a local pageant here in town, every year. I'll be in South Carolina next month judging Miss Spartanburg. Any SC bloggers want to meet up?! I've also been in 2 local commercials and have recently recorded a radio commercial for the college I attended and earned my Master's degree. I know - WEIRD!!
Other randomness about me:
I LOVE sweet tea
decorating and planning events
my Erin Condren planner
all things apple (macbook, iPhone, iPad, etc....oh and my appleTV)
gel nail polish
getting a Birchbox in the mail every month
Things I do NOT like:
chipped off nail polish
maxi pads (sorry if any men are reading this LOL)
cleaning the bathroom
I think that about does it. If you made it to the end of this post, bless you and I'm sorry. I went a bit overboard, but didn't know what to delete. ha I could probably think of more random stuff to say, but I don't want to bore you. Be sure to hop over to Blog Hoppin' and link up. Don't forget to join us for the rest of Teacher Week 2013 and join me tomorrow for my "Classroom Digs." Happy Monday!
