The Anna Costume

Do you wanna build a snowman?

Just kidding.

I mentioned previously that I used to teach elementary school kids. They were a lot of fun. One thing they constantly told me was that I looked like the character Anna from “Frozen”. I had my hair pretty heavily streaked blonde then, (and I am naturally red-headed). I didn’t know who that was until I eventually saw the movie.

That spring, we celebrated “March is Reading Month”. During that month we have lots of fun school-wide activities dedicated to reading. My favorite was “Teachers Gone Bananas” where the staff dresses up as a character from a book and then spends some time reading to students.

The music teacher and I decided to dress up as Anna and Elsa and together we read to the school’s kindergarteners and first graders. We definitely felt like celebrities! I’m pretty sure if Disney needs an Anna or Elsa park character, we’d be good for it!

It was one of my favorite memories teaching elementary school.

I’m going to be selling the costume this month. I would like to make some videos on me in the clothing items (that still fit!) to post on YouTube before I get rid of it. This costume has served me well.

I’m grateful for you, Anna Costume!
