1.  Why did you choose to go into teaching?
I was actually going to become a music teacher but one day when I was in a teacher store, I saw all this fun stuff that I wouldn't be able to do in just a music class and viola, my decision to be a teacher.  I am lovin' every minute of it!2.  What are your 3 favorite books to read to your class?
Charlotte's Web by E.B. White- They {Heart} this book!  It's always the first chapter book I read about to start off the school year.
The Witches by Roald Dahl- Another favorite.  I love the looks on their faces when I read that even their teacher might be a witch and I chuckle when I see them staring at my nails and watching for my scratching my head.  "Maybe she does have a wig??"
The other one that my students L.O.V.E.D. this year was The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. We probably could have finished it in one day.  There were sighs and whines everyday when read aloud was over!
3.  What do you do in your free time?
I like to hang out with my pup, relax with some Gordon Ramsay, and enjoy the sun.
4.  Who is your biggest inspiration? Why?
My parents.  They are the most amazing people on the face of the planet.  They have always and always will be there for me no matter what.  I could never thank them enough for all the sacrifices they've made for myself, my sisters, and my brother.  They love us unconditionally.5.  If you were stuck on a desert island, what is the one thing you would have to have (not including the essential things to survive)? Why?My Pup!! He always makes me smile and loves to cuddle so I could never be cold! I would also need Music. Can't live without it. So I guess that's 2 things (but technically music would b an essential!!)
6.  What is your biggest pet peeve in the classroom?
Dirty Tabletops! ugh hate them.7.  Why did you join the bloggy world?
I wanted to be a part of all the fun that I read everyday and share the ideas I had for other teachers to use in the classroom.  It's also a place for me to just blog about the everyday trials (Stressful and enjoyable) of being a teacher.8.  What are you most proud of?
This is a tough one...I might have to come back to this9.  Where would you go on your dream vacation?
Iceland!  10. What toy do you miss from your childhood?
I was an outside gal, I still have that! :)11.  What is your favorite song?
