Liebster award

I am so excited to be nominated for the Liebster Award.  I was nominated by Emily from Confessions of a 3rd Grade Teacher.  The award is given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.
Here are the rules for accepting this award:
  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 by commenting on their blog or sending them an email to communicate the nomination 
Now for my questions from Confessions of a 3rd Grade Teacher:
  1. If you could have any superpower what would it be? Why?  To see into the future- I am such a planner and would love to be able to see what's coming up.
  2. What is your favorite teaching item? Why?  Promethean Board- I love integrating technology into my lessons and making them interactive and fun.
  3. If you could relive a day in your past, what day would it be? Why?  I would love to spend another day with my grandmother.  She was the reason I became a teacher and my best friend.  She passed away two years ago at 98 years old.  I would love to spend one more day with her.
  4. What are you looking forward to most about the upcoming school year?  I am starting a new grade (I am going to blog about this later) and a new county.  I am excited and anxious about the transition.
  5. Why did you decide to start blogging?  I started my blog this year as my New Year's resolution.  I love finding new, creative ideas on other blogs and wanted to do the same for other teachers. 
  6. If someone were to write a book about you, what would it be called?  Eat. Sleep. Teach-  This is my life.  Everywhere I go and every thing I do involves teaching.  :)
  7. What is your favorite book to read to students?  Sideways Stories From Wayside School-  It is a great real aloud and my students love it every year. The characters are funny and the chapters are short enough to read a couple of chapters every day.
  8. What is a classroom item you don't have that you wish you did? Why?  I would love to have a class set of laptops!  I can think of so many fun projects and ideas that we could do with this technology. 
  9. What advice would you give a first year teacher? To have fun with it and immerse yourself in teaching.  Your students can tell when you want to be there and love what you do.
  10. Why did you decide to become a teacher?   My grandmother and older sister were both teachers.  Ever since I was little, that is the only job I have ever wanted.  I used to play school with my little sister and children that my mom babysat for. 
  11. Who is your hero? Why?  My hero is my grandmother.  She lived every single day to the fullest and was so positive and optimistic.  I never once heard her say a negative thing.  I try every day to be like her.
