Hey hey!!!! My name is Ronelle Nelson, and I’m The Teacher Queen! Cue the intro music and lights!
Just kidding! I’m really excited to introduce myself to you all and let you inside of my little world of teaching. Since we’re going to be friends, there are some things that you should know about me. Let’s get right to it, and allow me to tell you the essentials.
Question #1: Who are you?
The short answer is: I’m a Christian, a wife, and a primary educator. I love the Lord, I love my husband, and I love my job! I was married to my perfect match on June 9, 2012, and it was a perfect day!
I love teaching the really little ones (kindergarten, first, or second grade). My joy in being an educator lies in this range. There’s a ton of growth that happens in those grades, and it’s really rewarding to witness. Plus, they’re just so darn cute!
Question #2: Where did this whole “Queen” thing come from?
So, this is the story behind The Queen. My sophomore year of high school was the first year that I was in the women’s show choir, Mystiques. We were in class about to order our Mystiques shirts for the year, and we could have something put on the back if we wanted. Well it seemed like everyone had some sort of cute nickname or a funny phrase to put on the back of their shirt, and I wanted one too. Long story short, the name I came up with was The Queen. When the shirts came back, everyone was asking me what I was the queen of. I would just say, “I’m just The Queen.”
Of course, that name went on the back of every shirt after that, and it just stuck. I started calling myself The Queen all the time……it was even a part of a song I had on my voicemail and the signature on my emails for a long time. So I knew when it came time to naming my Teachers Pay Teachers store, it had to have Queen in it somewhere.
Question #3: Okay so you have a blog just like everyone else. What’s so special about yours?
What’s special about my blog is just that…..it’s mine. I plan on sharing my thoughts, my teaching tips and ideas, and my experiences in the classroom. I want to tell you all about my four years of teaching abroad and share as I prepare for my move back to America and back into an American classroom.
I might also throw in a post here and there that’s not teacher-related at all! So, you’re just gonna have to keep coming back to see what’s in store!
