Girl Behind the Blog No. 2

Today I am linking up with 5ohWifey  and Andi from The Hollie Rogue with  their series "Girl Behind the Blog"
I will let my video explain what this installment is all about but here are just a few side notes….

a. There is this great time in Texas called early spring where pollen settles on
everything and makes everyones voices and octave lower… example… see video.
b. I apparently like to repeat myself…a lot… ya know I like to repeat myself.

c. my kitchen light burnt out today and driving the 20+ minutes to wal mart to replace the bulb wasn't on my to-do list tonight so just bear with the awkward shadows that make my nose look 10x bigger than the just BIG it is.

Hi Meg,
Stopping by from the vlog link-up! It makes me so happy to hear that your students loved the Hunger Games as much as us adults did! I have a cousin who doesn't like reading (which is so hard for me to understand, because I'm a total book worm) so we're trying to get her hooked on the HG books as well. Good to know it's a smart tactic ;)

Cheers,
Em

You are tooo cute...why do all you beautiful girls have adorable accents too! I was a teacher too, and I loved that that is what you talked about. I totally agree...I learned SO MUCH from my students. Crazy huh..they are smart cookies!! :)

I love your southern/Texas accent, super adorable. And your nose is super cute…so there! I have a "big" nose too, but whatevs. I have tons of respect for any one who teaches and I love all you shared! :) XO Courtney

Jasmine said...

Haha, best accent! I'm studying to be a teacher so this video was heaps pertinent to me! Very inspiring! :-) x

LOVE the Hunger Games and as a teacher myself--this vlog spoke to me so much! Those kids are really lucky to have you as a teacher. I'm pretty sure we'd be RL friends :) thanks for linking up with us.

hugs,
Andi

Nicole said...

You are so cute and I love your accent!

Lindsay @ Trial By Sapphire said...

Meggy, my dear! You didn't use your hands as much as last time. ;-) Loved this vlog!

I'm so glad that your students are finding reading to be fun! To be honest, I didn't enjoy reading until I was 16. Seriously! Sometimes it just takes the right book to open a person's eyes. And I agree that there is much to be learned from children!

5ohWifey said...

You are so cute! I love your take on this. As a teacher you must have been so thrilled to hear that even one student wanted to read the second hunger games book let alone that multiple students did. That is so awesome!

Courtney said...

You are too cute! I love your accent! Also, your headband is super adorable =)

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said...

HIIII :)

First of all, I am SO mad at myself for not making the time to do a second vlog. HMPH.

Moving on...
I feel like your accent wasn't as BAM this time...maybe because I was expecting it?! haha!
Also, I love that hair piece you have in - adorable!

I love your passion for teaching! Those kids are so incredibly blessed to have a teacher that cares as much as you do! Just saying!

LOVE LOVE>

Julie Marie said...

awww i love your accent. and i love the hunger games and i am in my 30s, havent read a book for enjoyment probably in 10 years or more...so we are definitely not too old to learn to love something =) such a good lesson... thanks for sharing... i am going to carry that with me!!

Leigh Anne said...

I wish all teachers had a passion that you do for your students and what you do! You are AWESOME! Can't tell you that enough (:

Happy Happy Happy Wednesday!

Love it :)

Annie said...

When you said that your job was to make people learn I had this vision of you standing in front of a classroom of kids shoving learning down their throats, haha. That's certainly what I feel I'm doing with some of my students! I think it's so tough when you're surrounded by that much learning - and especially when you're the one imparting a lot of it - to really sit back and reflect on what you're learning. I know I have that problem! So glad you shared these lessons today, and particularly that you're never to old to learn to love something. So maybe we could learn to love living in the middle of nowhere? Orrr maybe not. That might be pushing it. ;]

Annie said...

*too old to learn to love something... yes, i do know the difference between to, too, and two. haha.

Robin said...

I can't tell you how much I loved this vlog! First of all, I could listen to your accent all day! (and I don't mean that in a creepy way haha) and I love how wise your students are! I really need to remember to start fresh each day and not let the past bring me down! Also love how you pointed out it's never too late to learn to love something. I am still finding new things I love each day! I adore your blog!

Rachel said...

I just found your Vlog from the link-up! New follower :) I am going to be posting my vlog this weekend!

Katie said...

you are so cute and I love your headband! and yeah for passionate awesome teachers! : )

Melissa said...

Your accent is too adorable, not that you want to hear that your accent is adorable. haha!

I love what you did with the reading and the kids. At that age, unless you are usually made to read you don't even know that you might have a love for it. Hopefully you turned some on to being lifelong readers. :)
