11 questions for me
Why do you blog?
I blog for reflection and because I love sharing.  I blog for me sometimes, and if my readers are sweet enough to read it, then bless them!

What is your favorite book for a read aloud?
I love reading aloud the Magic Tree House series when I get a chance to.  My kids love them and so do I!

Are you a good dancer?
I am a TERRIBLE dancer.  I am not sure the word terrible is strong enough truly!

Do you have a favorite teacher/education website? is my go to site for many ideas for my Junior High Students... I visit it on a regular basis!  I wish that the website wasn't up for sale :(
My other big teacher life saver is Dropbox!  Saves my life!

What are you most excited about for the new school year?
I am excited to get back into my classroom.  I miss my students!  I get to have most of my kiddos again, and I am excited because I know where we are and where we are going!  I am loving this teaching them for multiple years ideas.  I am also excited to see the new ceiling work and new tiles I am supposed to be getting thanks to the F1 tornado (see previous post).

What subject do you love to teach the most?
Well, that is a tough one.  I love teaching Science, but Math runs a very close second!

How do you handle a tough day on the education field?
A few intense games of bowling with my competitive coaching husband usually lets me unwind, but if we cannot bowl that night, then I turn into a complete nerd and resort to World of Warcraft (yes, I am one of those people).

Which holiday break is your favorite?
Spring Break is by far my favorite.  It is the one time of year I don't have to go, go, go... I get a few minutes to breathe which doesn't happen any other time of the year.

Which is better... pens or pencils?
For me personally, I like pen.  I don't like the way writing with pencil feels, but if I write with pencil it is always mechanical.  It is a sensory thing for me!

Favorite type of music?
My music loves are very random.  For those of you familiar with Sirius XM, my favorites set in my car are Prime Country, The Highway, The Pulse, The Blend, and 90s on 9.  I also love jazz and classical music and very much miss living in the city where I can go to the orchestra concerts.

Favorite piece of advice to share with educators?
