Liebster Award

Hi everyone!
I feel really special today because Christy at Christy's Leaping Loopers nominated me for an award!

To accept the nomination you must:

1. Link back to the blog that nominated you

2. Nominate 5-11 blogs with fewer than 200 followers
3. Answer the questions posted for you by your nominator
4. Share 11 random facts about yourself
5. Create 11 questions for your nominees
6. Contact your nominees and let them know you nominated them

Here are my answers to her 11 Questions:
1. How long have you taught at your school?
This will be my third year teaching (total and at my school).
2. Do you have any pets?
I have two dogs, Tycho and Darwin. I also have 4 classroom fish, if that counts!
3. Do you use Daily Five in your class?
I tried it my first year of teaching but it was difficult to work into my schedule (we didn't a literacy "block"). Our district is changing the way we do literacy, so I think Daily 5 will be a major part of my day now! I'm excited!
4. What is your favorite color?
This sounds goofy, but I really like all of the colors! I love rainbows, and I just think colors look better when they're all together :) If I had to pick one, I like red because it stands out.
5. Where did you go on your honeymoon?
No married yet :) But I'd love to go to Hawaii!
6. Do you drive a car, truck, van, or SUV?
I drive a Honda Fit! Love it!
7. Do you bite your finger nails?
Yes... bad habit! Keeping my nails painted helps me not bite them so often.
8. Do you like to use pinterest?
I remember using Pinterest when hardly anything was pinned! I remember searching for certain things and finding NOTHING. Now I do the same search and there's TONS! I'm on Pinterest pretty much daily :)
9. Does your classroom have a theme?
I think everyone would agree that my theme is "rainbow". I love the look of classrooms with a theme--they look so put together!! I just can't commit to one color or one theme!
10. Are you afraid of heights?
11. What job would you have if you were not a teacher?
If I had infinity time and money wasn't an issue, I'd love to be a forensic anthropologist (think Bones) or a computer programmer. I'm pretty good at tedious tasks!

  1. I love that your dogs are named after scientists! I also played World of Warcraft but have since switched over to another MMORPG! Thank you so much for the nomination.
