Meet the Teacher!

Hey yall!
First of all, I just want to say happy first day to some of you that started a brand new year today! I hope yall have a stupendous year!!!
Tonight I am linking up with TBA for their Open House week!

Open House Week

Today is technically classroom photos, but since I don't currently have a classroom, I thought I would catch up on what was Monday....Meet the Teacher!

So, a little more about Mrs. Lemacks :)

1. I'm 27 years old and married to my soulmate. We have been together for 8 and a half years, married for 4. The hubs is my best friend and I would be lost without him. He is my confidant, my companion, my foundation, my rock. Seriously, I love this man with my whole being.

2. I do not have any children...yet. We're working on it :) We do, however, have 2 sweet furbabies that we treat like our children. They are completely spoiled!
3. I love, love, love going to concerts and shows! Our all time favorite band is Widespread Panic. I have been to see them about 13 times in the last 10 years. And no...I'm NOT a hippie, I just like hippie music :) I have also been to see Allman Brothers, Dave Matthews, Grace Potter, Avett Brothers, Coldplay, Black Keys, Zach Brown Band, Moe, and many more!

4. I love decorating my house! If I wasn't a teacher, I would hands down be an interior designer. I just love watching a room come together!
5. I am the youngest of 5. I have two older brothers and two older sisters. My parents just celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary! I have 6 nephew and nieces and I love them all like my own! My family is the most important thing to me!

6. I love to laugh! That's what I love most about the hubs...he makes me laugh every single day! I would choose to watch funny movies and TV shows over any other genre.
7. Over the past few years, I have spent a year in PreK as an assistant teacher and 2 years teaching first grade. I have to say that first grade definitely has my heart! The hubs and I recently moved back to our hometown and I had to give up my job. Although I have been actively searching for months now, I have not been able to find a new school :(
8. However, I have decided to take this opportunity to make creating units for TPT my fulltime job! I will be dedicating all my time and effort into making this my job. I am working on drafting a business plan and setting goals for myself. I am just so inspired by the success stories that I read each week in the newsletters, and think "Why not me?" I figured I should use this time constructively :) You know what they say about life and lemons!
9. I am an army brat. My father spent 30 years in the army, but retired in 2000 as a Colonel. I have lived in many different places-though not nearly as many as my older siblings! When I was in kindergarten, I went to a school in Belgium and spoke Flemish pretty well. Of course, I can't remember a lick of it today :) I am so proud of my daddy for serving this great country!

10. I LOVE to read! I am dying to get a Kindle, but that's just gonna have to wait :( My favorite author currently is probably Emily Griffin. I like to keep my reading light hearted :)
Whew! It's hard work talking about yourself :)
Night, friends!


  1. Love your positive attitude! I'm also loving all the new stuff you've been creating! Hang in there!

  2. Hi, Natalie! It sounds like we are very similar. I also moved back to my hometown and did not get a teaching job. I've been focusing on creating more TpT unit as a means of a job too. I still have a couple preschool interviews, but it certainly isn't a teaching salary. I hope to get back into the classroom by the next school year, but it makes me sad to read about all the fun classroom fun I'm missing out on! By the way, I also love Emily Giffin's books too. I also like Sophia Kinsella. Have you read her books?

  3. I LOVE Grace Potter and Dave Matthews!
    I can't wait to hear how you are doing with the TpT stuff. What a great outlook!
