About Me

Well, hello! I'm honored that you're here and wanting to read a little bit about me! Where to begin.... My name is Chelsea and I have been teaching for three years now. I work in a small, charming town in New Jersey - I'm truthfully so blessed to be working in such an amazing district! I started my career teaching "kindergarten extension," a place for k students to continue to learn before/after their half day kindergarten day. I LOVED it! It was a wonderful place for a first year teacher. In December of that year, I was unexpectedly asked to do a maternity leave for our preschool teacher. I was very honored that my Principal thought of me for the position but my brain was screaming WHAAAAAT!? Just as I was getting used to teaching kindergarteners, I had to rethink everything and wrap my brain around preschool curriculum. Later that year, my principal offered me the position of kindergarten teacher for the next school year- yay! My heart is in kindergarten so I was thrilled! I was so thankful to have that preschool experience because I knew where the kindergarteners were coming from. 2013-2014 was a year of learning what half day kindergarten was all about... Reader's Workshop, Writer's Workshop, Math Centers, OH MY! During the summer of 2014, we found out that our enrollment was particularly low so you know what that means.... Chelsea switches placements yet again! ;) Now, I'm a self contained k, 1, 2 teacher in the morning and a kindergarten co-teacher in the afternoon. 

In my spare time, when I'm not on my computer creating TpT things, I love spending time with my boyfriend of 2.5 years, Kevin :) He spoils me and I feel like the happiest girl when I'm with him! 

I've always enjoyed going to the gym and living a healthy lifestyle, but I've also recently became addicted to crossfit! Such a great workout- let's see if I can keep that up in 2015! I also try to live the low carb life {with as little cheat days as possible! ha! - I can't help it... pasta, bread and cookies are just too good!}. 

I'm also a lover of wine and movie nights, shopping, sugar free chocolates, cats, coffee, family and friends! As silly as it sounds, I could sit on powerpoint for hours and make new things for TpT! It really has become a passion of mine!
