An award- go check out these great blogs!


Wow! Colleen at Totally Terrific in Texas and Tonya at Tonya’s Treats for Teachers  both gave me this award!!! I've seen it on so many blogs, and I always thought "You must have to have a really cool blog to get that!" So a huge thank you to Colleen andf Tonya! I am truly touched. Writing a blog is so personal, and like teaching, it's putting yourself on the line in some ways. It's like letting people read your mind, or look into your thoughts. Or like meeting a new friend when you don't want them to learn your faults too quickly. So getting an award is always a little validating. Does anyone else think that? Anyway, go check out her super cute blog and see who else she nominated, and learn a little more about her. 

So 7 random things about me:
1. My husband is my principal.  I have nothing more to say about that.
2. Like Colleen, I like dark chocolate. I'll eat milk chocolate when in a pinch, but it's just not the same.
3.Parks and Rec is my favorite t.v. show. It's so weird and quirky. It just makes me laugh. 
4. I HATE to cook, buy groceries, and find recipes. Yuck. Thinking about it after school starts makes me nauseous.
5.I LOVE to bake, and seem to have built up a tolerance for raw eggs. I've eaten enough cookie/brownie/cake dough to feed a small country.
6.I just bought a new (used) van, and it's ORANGE. I love it. I can find it in the parking lot.
7.My students all know this about me: I live in AZ, and I have a paranoid fear of scorpions. So much that we moved out of our house because we had so many. 

So here are some blogs I am passing on the award to: (I'm sorry if you've already been nominated! I tried to make sure I didn't see the award, but I may have missed it).
1. Miss Elisabeth at The Adventures of Miss Elizabeth
2.  Susie at Learning with Susie Q. 
3. Lorena at Little Treasures
6.Delighted at First Grade Delights
7. Molly at Lessons with Laughter
8. Cynthia at Second Grade Pad
9. Deborah at The Paper Maid
10. Heather at Third Grade is a Hoot
11. Sara at Ramblings of a Deaf Ed Teacher's Mind
12.Jennifer at Kindertrips
13. Katie at Little Kinder Warriors
14. Tara at Little Minds at Work 
15. Mrs.  Jordan at TIPS: Teach, Inspire, and Prepare Students 
Thank you again to Tonya and Colleen. Go check out all their great ideas!
