Meet Lori from Teaching With Love and Laughter



Hello, everyone! I am Lori from




I've been a blogger for about a year and a half and I cannot imagine my life without my blog. Blogging is the reason I have "met" literally hundreds of teachers from all over the world. Teachers are such special people!

I feel especially blessed to be a part of Freebielicious. I am happy to call all of the authors of this very special blog, my friends. I often wish we all lived near each other so we could teach in the same school! A girl can dream, right?

I've been a teacher for a really, really, really long time! 20 years to be exact! I got my teaching license when I was 15! Just kidding! I wish I were that young!

I've always taught primary students because they are good for my ego. They think I am the BEST singer, artist, and writer. Truth be told, I can't carry a tune and my artistic ability is very limited. I am a great writer though! 
I'll give them that. LOL! 

If you asked my students to describe me, they will definitely say I am...funny, forgetful, and clumsy. And smart, beautiful, and the best teacher in the universe! And, they will tell you that I cannot find people in a crowd and that I am really bad with names. All of it is true! ;)

I am a super duper doggie lover! 


I am owned by two yorkies and I love them dearly. 
Don't be fooled by their cuteness though!
They are spoiled rotten.
If only the clip chart worked with them!

I have a wonderful family, but they are all too shy to appear on the internet. I actually work with my sister. She teaches in the room right next to mine and our classrooms share an office. During the day, we often swap funny stories with each other. She is one of my BEST friends!

Here are a few more facts about me...

-I am a hoarder of school supplies, bins, baskets, cute notepads, and educational activities. I don't think I'll ever be able to use up all that I have in this lifetime! Thankfully, I have a HUGE treadmill that holds a lot of my obsessions!

-My favorite musical groups are... 

and

-I always, and I mean always, wear my hair in a ponytail. The only time my hair wasn't in a ponytail, for the past few years, is when I posed for the picture in this post! Really! I can't stand when my hair falls into my face. And I always want to brush other people's hair off their face! I try hard not to, though, because people think that's weird!

-I LOVE to eat! I am a BIG foodie! I don't love to cook, but I just adore eating. Thankfully, teaching, and life, in general, keep me busy and moving around!

-I also love to watch comedies. There are some really GREAT new comedies this year. My favorites are ...



Comic relief is invaluable after a long day teaching!

So, that's me!
I adore teaching.
I adore blogging.
And I adore chatting with all of you!

As a thank you for listening to me go and on about myself, here is a present for all of you! My students LOVE to write the room and here is a generic write the room template that can be used any time of the year.

Enjoy!

  5. Thanks for sharing a peek into your personal life! I am also a hoarder of school supplies but I don't have a big treadmill to house mine, instead I have a huge circle chair in my bedroom that is meant to cuddle up with a good book in....needless to say, you can't find any spot to sit much less cuddle up and read :) I also wear my hair in a ponytail 95% of the time! It is so fun to read about the similarities I have with my fellow bloggers! Thanks for the freebie also.

    1. I guess most teachers are hoarders! We just never know when we'll need something, so we like to know we have it, just in case. Too funny about the ponytail!
