Liebster Award

Melissa from Creations by Mrs. Mouse has nominated me for the Liebster Award.  How sweet!  I have a few more than 250 followers (plus my Bloglovin' and Google followers are no longer in sync AT ALL), but she assured me I wasn't that far off when she chose me so I am going to go ahead and answer her questions as well as nominate some other new bloggers so we can learn about them as well.  Thanks Melissa!


For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Liebster Award, it is for new blogs.

11 Questions/Answers About Myself:

1. Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have a cat named Tink.  You can see her over to the left.  She is labeled as my assistant.

2. What grade do you teach? Is this your favorite?
I teach second grade now.  I used to teach first and it is actually my most favorite grade to teach.  I love teaching kids to read and catching them BEFORE they get behind, which sadly already seems to have happened for a lot of kids before they get to me in second.


3. Are you a night owl or do you go to bed early even in the summer?
I am an early bird...all year.  I am always in bed by nine during the school year and will usually stay up an hour or so later in the summer.  But I still get up by six.


4. Which season is your favorite and why?
I love fall, but it's missing in Texas!  I love how it is cool, but not cold.  No jackets needed.  Back home, all the leaves fall and change colors which is really pretty.


5. How do you relax?
Lay around and watch TV.


6. What is something that you wished you had been taught in college about teaching?
How to involve parents in their children's education.

7. What is your favorite sweet concoction?
Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream...but I love cheesecake too.


8. If you could be a superhero, which one would it be and why?
I have no idea...one that can fly so I can avoid traffic.


9. If you could learn something new, what would it be?
I would like to learn how to draw.  I'd also like to know more about HTML and Photoshop.  I still can't figure out iTunes half the time either!


10. Do you have children?
Not yet, but hopefully soon.


11. What is your biggest pet peeve? 
When people say they are going to do something, but they don't.
