who is the teacher wife?

I started the Teacher Wife blog in February 2011 to share my experiences as a teacher, because I enjoy blogging. I never dreamed of what it would become! I have made some life-long friends who live all over the world and they have helped me become a better teacher and person. 

I try to keep this blog school related, so I don't usually post information about myself. 
However, today I am linking up with Mrs. Lemons' Tell Me More Linky Party!

So... a little bit about me:

1. See that cutie patootie in the picture above? Well that HUNK {Dave} is all mine!  He is my best friend and I couldn't imagine life without him. He is my rock. He also balances me out - I always tend to make impulse decisions and he thinks things through. I'm creative and he is logical. We actually couldn't be more opposite from each other, but I love him anyways! {Seriously! Sometimes I have to make two different dinners, because we don't even like the same food!!}

2. Dave is exactly 12 inches taller than me. A WHOLE FOOT, PEOPLE!
And yes, I always have to get on a step stool to kiss him... ;)

3. I was married in this beautiful LDS temple.

4. Because, I am a Mormon

5. If I was allowed to wear my pajamas {or sweats} to school everyday, then I would. In fact, I am always trying to convince my students that they want to earn a pajama day for good behavior!! You know you've had too many pajama days when they don't think that sounds fun anymore...

6. My niece {in the picture above} was in my first grade class {my first year of teaching} and my second grade class {my second year of teaching}. Even if I wasn't her aunt, she would still be my favorite student!

7. My other darling niece {in the picture below} will be in my first grade class this fall! We are both excited!

8. I live next door to my sister. I see this view a lot and I think it's better than any sunset or ocean!
{Please excuse the blurry picture. It was taken on my iphone and it was zoomed in.}

9. So far everything is about my family... I can't help it! I got a good one!

10. I adore my nieces and nephews and I can't wait until I can add my own kids to this CRAZY bunch!
{NO - this is not an announcement!}

9. I've been on the cover of a magazine and I didn't even know it!
I had a friend mention it causally to me one day and I was like "WHAAA??"

10. I'm still a kid at heart, which is why I love being a teacher. 
{And I secretly wish that I could still pull off this hairdo!}

Go link up with Amy! I would love to learn more about you!


  1. Lindsey, I loved learning more about you! I already adored you as a teacher but now I adore you as a person too!

  2. Precious pictures! I love my niece and nephew so much. I live less than 2 minutes from my mom and sisters.

  9. You are adorable in every way! I came across your blog because I'm starting my own. The first thing I thought when I read your little about me was, " I wonder if she is a mormon." I am as well! Cool stuff!


  10. hahaha I LOVE your kid picture!!! And your magazine cover is amazing!! So glad I became friends with you through blogging, you're the best! :)

  11. Love! I think we all have those amazing hairdo photos stashed away somewhere. Mine was the half braid or the full french braid... with hideous glasses. Yikes! Loved learning more about you!

  13. I love this linky party - Your post inspired me to join. It's so fun to read such a familiar family-oriented perspective. Is that the Bountiful temple? It looks a lot like it. I just added my link to the party and posted a wedding pic of us in front of the Bountiful temple. Yay for Utah teachers! :)

    me !!! Your nieces and nephews are adorable :)

  17. I loved learning more about you. You are so lucky to live so near those precious nieces and nephews.

  18. Loved hearing and seeing all about you. What temple is that? I was married in the Manti Temple. I got to teach my nephew this past year. It was so fun to get to know him in a different setting besides family gatherings. I also got to teach my son my first, intern year -- YIKES!


  19. This was such a treat today. I didn't know too much about you yet and this was a great "little window." It's kinda creepy . . . I know . . . I know . . . but, I love getting to learn more about my favorite bloggers and their lives outside of the classroom. Hugs!
