Hello My Name Is


Y’all I can’t believe the day is finally here to launch this blog. Who would have thought that little old me would have something valuable to add to the vast and wide teacher blogger community!? At the very least, I hope I do! This launch is long overdue and has been on the back burner for about a year. But today is the day that I take a leap of faith and introduce you to my little corner of the internet. So here she is, my little blog baby. I hope you will treat her well. I've got four days of giveaways planned to celebrate the launch!


 So let's get started with a little introduction shall we. My name is Kristi Dunckelman and I am living and loving life in New Orleans, Louisiana. I moved to the big city four years ago from the bayou region of South Louisiana to follow my husband on his dream of becoming a lawyer.

That's us on the day William officially became a Tulane Law Graduate and I became a lawyer's wife (although that didn't officially happen until after a summer of studying for the Bar, a crazy stressful week of the actual exam, and a nerve wracking four months of waiting for the results...but that's another story for another time.)

 We live our newly-married, twenty-something life along with our spoiled puppy mutt daughter Scarlett Francis.
 Y'all will soon learn that I'm obsessed with all things Southern; thus, my dog has a double-barreled name and is the namesake of the legendary heroin of Gone With the Wind.

 This school year (which starts in few too many days by the way) will be my 6th year of teaching and 4th year in second grade. I'm starting this school year off at a brand new school in our neighborhood. After four years of driving 45 minutes or more across the Mississippi River, I can't even explain how excited I am to be able to walk to work each morning! Over the past two years, the teacher blogger community has impacted my professional practice in a HUGE way, and inspired me to take the plunge and become a TPT seller. EEKK! Talk about nerve wracking. But I can absolutely say that decision was one of the best I’ve ever made. You can check out my TPT store HERE.

 I’ve “met” so many amazing teachers and now friends through this new professional journey, and have been so blessed and encouraged by these wonderful people to take the next step and make this blog a reality. In today's giveaway you'll get the chance to win a prize pack of 15 TPT products donated by some of these amazing people! Fill out the Rafflecopter below to enter for a chance to win.



 If you’ve ever seen this sign before that means you’ve been lucky enough to cross state lines and come into the great state of Louisiana.


In Louisiana our food is spicier, our weather is 100% humidity all the time, and we enjoy life more than anywhere else in the country. It’s with that unique joy of life that I want to share my musings with you. I plan to bring you a gumbo of sorts through this blog. There’s going to be a spicy little mix of things happening over here. I plan to share a whole lot of teaching, a dash of cooking, a little bit of Southern living, and I’ll throw in some commentary on #dunckelmanadventures here and there. Check back Thursday-Saturday for the rest of the blog launch fun and giveaways! Hugs, kisses, and tell your mom and 'dem I said hey!

In case it is any other Big East team, the Wildcats would be a significant favorite.

  26. American Made 2017 Full Movie Watch Online, American Made is a 2017 American biographical crime film directed by Doug Liman, written by Gary Spinelli and starring Tom Cruise.

    Watch American Made full Movie 2017 is more interesting as a showcase for the dateless elasticity of Cruise’s star power. It feels, for better or worse, like a film he could have made at almost any point in the last 30 years.

    American Made 2017 movie isn’t a major breakthrough, but it still feels like a career progression for Cruise simply by handing him an intriguing role: Adler Berriman “Barry” Seal, prime mover in one of those just-declassified, you-couldn’t-make-it-up stories that sporadically fall into the hands of grateful producers.

    Watch American Made Online also offers some parallels to fictional Tom Cruise projects. We've seen the star have some other airplane trouble recently in The Mummy and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Meanwhile, American Made's trailer features a scene almost identical to one in last year's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. In both, Cruise plays a character who is able to successfully taunt police officers with the knowledge that they're going to have to let him go.

    Next month, Tom Cruise is reteaming with his Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman for American Made. Based on a true story, the film finds the three-time Academy Award nominee playing the part of Barry Seal, a pilot-turned-drug runner who, in 1984, was recruited to be an undercover CIA informant for one of the biggest drug busts in history. While Seal may not be one of the most virtuous of real life figures, Cruise says that it was Seal's incredible true story that was just too interesting to pass up. Cruise said.
