Meet the Teacher Linky

Hello all! Well, school has officially started for me. We are in PD all this week, then kiddos come a week from today! I am so excited for my new class, and I have a really good feeling about my second year of teaching. But, of course, I am super busy. And tired. It's hard to get back into my routine after being spoiled all summer with sleeping in and being lazy!

Anywho, I am so excited about this linky from Stephanie over at Falling Into First! I am loving reading about my blogger friends and I love sharing with you guys about who I am "behind" my blog. So here's a little about me :)

Hey guys! I am Hannah Burns, a 23 year old fourth grade teacher from Arkansas. I am staring my second year of teaching! I love my fourthies and I love that I only teach Literacy ;)

Here's me and Husband in Hawaii this past summer! We've been married two years now. I am so thankful for him and how he puts up with all my crazy teacher madness!

  Me and my dog baby Lewis. Yes, he is spoiled :)
And below is me and my two sisters and best friends. 

These are a few of my favorite things...
 Pens. School supplies in general. Books. Reading. Creating things for TPT. Dumb TV shows. Sleeping. Shopping. Candy. Instagram.

If you weren't a teacher, what would you want to be?
A wedding or party planner. I love crafting and being creative. And I can't sit still. So I think that would be a good job for me! Ha.

Three Little Words That Describe You.
Restless. Bossy. Free-spirited.

Finish the Sentence, "_______, said no teacher ever!!"
We should have more meetings....said no teacher ever! ;)

It's your birthday and you can invite anyone (dead or alive) to the party. Who are you inviting?
 Ahhh so hard to choose. JK Rowling to rub off some genius on me. The Civil Wars (I'm in denial about them breaking up) to sing. Ed Sheeran to also sing. And all my blogger friends!!!

If someone wrote a book about your life, what would be the title?
Life in the Clouds

You get to pick one superpower. What is it?
I think I would have to agree with Stephanie on this one...teleportation would be legit. Think how much time you could save not driving in the car! And maybe then I would be on time to things. But probably not.

What's your favorite quote or saying?
"Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best." - Henry Van Dyke 

If you had to sing one song on American Idol, what would it be?
Um, none! I have a horrible voice. Maybe Broken Wing or Strawberry Wine. A classic. A hilarious classic.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I am so a night owl. Me and mornings don't jive. But once you get me up and caffeinated, I'm good.     

What's your favorite resource that you've created in your TPT shop?
This is so hard to pick....I think every new thing I make is my new favorite. Haha.

I think it would probably be my Helen Keller activity. This was my very first TPT product. I created it for my second grade student teaching class. And I will always love the spark of creativity this little freebie started!

Share something we might not know about you...
I love to sleep! I take a nap after work almost every day. No shame in this game.

I LOVE this linky party! Go add your link so I can read all about you! And thanks again, Stephanie :)


  1. I nap every day after work too! We have tough jobs! Naps are basically refueling, which is totally acceptable!

    I enjoyed reading your post! :)


  2. So nice to meet you, Hannah! I'm a big napper, too, especially this summer.


  3. I miss having the time to nap after school! My first few years of teaching, I would nap everyday after school. Now, it's not very feasible and I've tried to replace my naps with workouts... While I know it is better for me, I MISS my naps and definitely make up for it during summer time! Have a great school year!


  4. Congrats on getting through your 1st year. I am heading into my 2nd year as well. I love literacy, just finished my reading endorsement. Hawaii sounds like a perfect summer vacation. Have a great school year!


  5. I used to take a nap after work...before I had my daughter! I miss those.

    I can't sing either, but LOVE both of those songs, esp. Strawberry Wine.
