When my parents were discussing names, my mom wanted to name me Annie Jo. Thankfully my dad didn't like it (I just don't think I would've made a very good Annie, although I do have the curly hair, hmmm...). So they settled Randee (Randee after my dad's BF, Randy). The Renee was after my aunt. I haven't always liked my name...but I've grown to love it!
2. I'm the oldest of three children...36 years old! My brothers are going to kill me, but they were so cute! They'll probably NEVER see this anyway!!!
Brad and Chuck
3. I'm an Auntie and I LOVE it! My brothers (who no longer look like this) have given me the two sisters that I never had, one nephew (Barrett) and two neices (Izzy and Ruthie)!!!
4. I have three FABulous men in my life...my boyfriend Ray and his two boys!
I'll be on the bank (boat deck or lounge chair) catching a little sun while the boys do their thing.
I did climb and jump off the tree you see in the top left of this picture!
6. I have ALWAYS loved to dance...still do!
7. My LOVE for dancing and need to get off of the couch, let me to Zumba Fitness! I'm totally addicted!! I've been instructing for 2 years and will be attending my 1st convention in August. A little nervous because it takes place 2 weeks before school starts!!!!
This is my friend Becky and I and the Gin and Tonic tour in K.C. Believe it or not, I believe that is Becky bent over in the dance picture of me above! We've been dancing buds for over 25 years...CrAzY!!!
8. In addition to Zumba Fitness, I'm addicted to McDonald's Sweet Tea! I swear it's "laced" w/something!!!
9. So I haven't talked school yet...2012-2013 will be my 14th year in the education. I've taught at the same, small, rural school and couldn't even dream of going elsewhere! We have an awesome staff, students, and parents! I've taught grades K-4 (not in that order). Some moves were made by choice, others were because of classroom numbers (#'s fluctuate from year to year). This will be my 4th year in Kindergarten and I still LOVE it and am very EXCITED about my team! I hold a Master's Degree in Education (no specialty...kinda regret that decision now) and earned National Board Certification in 2009.
10. If I could have any other job, I think I would want to be a secretary (not a school one)! One of the many things I LOVE about summer is lunches w/my girlies! An hour off in the middle of the day is just perfect! In addition...I also LOVE to talk on the phone, take notes, proofread, and organize meetings and events.
