Teacher Week: Meet Leslie Ann :)

I just love teacher week! Be sure and join in the fun by linking up with us over at Blog Hoppin'!
Today's topic is all about me :) Here are my 10 random facts:
{1} I've taught 1st grade for 4 years and this year I'm transferring to 5th reading. I'm really excited to experience a new age group! You can read all about my 5th grade adventures on my new(ish) blog, Life in Fifth Grade

{2} I have recently become obsessed with Mindy Kaling. If you don't know who she is (shame on you!), she played Kelly Kapoor on The Office and now has her own show, The Mindy Project, which she also writes and produces. She is so funny! I just love her :)

{3} TV shows are my guilty pleasure. My favorites are: Gossip Girl (is Blake Lively not the most gorgeous girl? I would kill for her hair), Glee (I love Rachel Berry), the aforementioned The Mindy Project (my new favorite show!), and The Office (Is Jim Halpert not the cutest thing ever?)

{4} I can quote the movie Titanic in its entirety. I was in 5th grade when the movie came out, way back in 1997 and I was obsessed.

{5} I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. I've read the books countless times and love the movies. 

{6} While creating things for my classroom, I like to listen to the soundtrack from Wicked. Such a great musical. 

{7} I love watching beauty gurus on Youtube. My favorite is Missglamourazzi. She has wonderful makeup tricks and hair tutorials. 

{8} I have a personal/fashion blog: Southern Belle Inspired. Fashion is a huge part of my life and I like to talk about that, along with all other things southern, over there. 

{9} I am obsessed with Instagram. Follow me! msleslieann01

{10} My little Maltese, Reese (named after Reese Witherspoon) is so camera shy! I can hardly take her picture without her hiding her face. I have to sneak around with the camera and quickly snap a picture without making any noise. She's funniest little dog. :)

Have you linked up yet?! Come join in the fun!!


  1. I'll have to start following your fashion blog! I feel like we could be friends! I LOVE Harry Potter! I re read all the book most summers. I have even listened to all the books on tape ---fabulous if you haven't! you should! My close friend is now building new parts for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter so I re-newed my love for Harry even more! It was great reading about you!

  2. I love Ingrid too! Oh...and gossip girl, I didn't want it to end. I refused to watch the last episode for a few months, ha! Love your blog :)

  3. My puppy is named Reese also. Only I picked Reese after the former Dodger who befriended Jackie Robinson. So cute!

  5. Hey! I found your blog a year ago, at the beginning of my first year of teaching! I teach first grade, so I have loved reading your blog. You have so many cute ideas, I'm sad you're not in first anymore. Hope you have a great school year!


  6. Best of luck in 5th! I teach first (17 years and counting!) but my daughter just finished fifth and I felt like it was a huge year of growth and maturing for her, just like first is! Now she is heading into middle school and I feel like her excellent 5th grade teachers prepared her very well!
