Survey of Fours

I have seen this little ‘Survey of Fours’ floating around on various blogs and bookmarked it to do on a rainy day. Today wasn’t exactly rainy but it was snowy and cold. My toddler is asleep and my husband is working so I figured, why not? I enjoy doing things like this and I like reading these types of posts when others do them. It’s fun to learn more about people 🙂 Here goes!

  1. Katie (everyone)
  2. Kate (certain family & close friends)
  3. Mommy
  4. Mrs. Spaulding (at school)

Four jobs I’ve had:

  1. Waitress at a retirement home (in high school)
  2. Student telefunder (a.k.a. asking alumni to donate money back to my university while I was in college)

  4. Teacher (now)
