SOLSC23: Me by the Numbers

Fellow slicer Erika Victor posted a brilliant first day introduction yesterday, “Me in Numbers.” I loved it so much! Erika’s format reminded me of my first day of school activity this year where I put a picture of myself in the middle of the slide and random numbers all around my face. Students had to guess what each number represented – it was so much fun!

I’ll tell you what these mean and throw in some other ones, too! 😜

1 – I have one sibling. My sister, Tiffany, is eight years older than me.

2 – I have two sons, Elías (accent on the i; it is not pronounced “ee -lie-is”) and Gabriel (pronounced “gah-bri-ehl” not “gay-bree-uhl”) #thanksforasking

3 – I’ve owned three cars: Mustang, CR-V, mommy Minivan.

4 – Kyle and I have lived in four different housing situations: an apartment, a townhome, my mom’s house, our first house.

5 – We bought our first home five years ago.

6 – I have worked at my current school for six years.

7 – Growing up, I wanted seven kids! (This desire was inspired by the show 7th Heaven, LOL)

8 – I’ve been married eight years….and also teaching eight years.

9 – My relatively new favorite number. (This was a whole life crisis for me 🤣)

10 – I met Kyle ten years ago (at the time of presenting to my students, it was actually 10.5, so now the number should be 11).

22 – I have twenty-two first cousins…and also got married at age twenty-two.

31 – I turned thirty-one last month.

214 – My birthdate! 🎈 🎂

Thank you, Erika, for the inspiration. What a fun way to get to know somebody.

    This is a clever format. I noticed you skipped some numbers, which is good for geezers like me. I was afraid I’d have an extra long list if I were to write a similar slice.

      HAHAH. I’d love to read your “extra long list,” Glenda! 😜 I definitely couldn’t think of something for every number. I thought I wanted more, but couldn’t push it!

    This is a novel way to introduce yourself.I think it could also be fun at a party where everyone wears a number and others have to guess what that number represents through some creative conversations.

    Oh that’s a super cute way to do introductions or liven up any day! I would have loved this back when I was in the class and we needed a brain break or shake-up. And it really plays so nicely as a slice.

    Thanks for the shout out and sharing your spin. I often have students create a “Me in Numbers” poster at the beginning of the year, but love the idea to have them guess the meanings too!

    What a wonderful way to get to know someone! You’ve inspired me and I might even try this with my high school students…which could turn into another post during the month – yes! Thanks, Britt.
