Liebster Award

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Amanda at  Cupcakes and Lesson Plans and Bren at Bren in Room 10. This means I need to answer eleven questions about myself and then nominate eleven people to do the same. Thank you for the nominations Bren and Amanda! 

1. Why and how long ago did you start blogging?
* I started blogging in September because one of my colleagues revealed to me several great educational blogs. I became inspired and I wanted to share some of my ideas with fellow teachers around the world. 

2. What one word sums up the heart of your blog and why?
*INSPIRATION. I can only hope to inspire others the way they have inspired me!

3. Is there something you learned late in your blog journey you wished you knew before?  
* I just started blogging a few months ago, and I was worried about not having followers. However, I know hundreds of people view my blog and enjoy it. I know that it's not all about the "official" followers.

4. What is your favorite past time other than blogging?
* I love to read and walk my two dogs. I'm into suspenseful mysteries and crime novels. If you have any book suggestions, let me know! I'm always up for a good book! 

5. How many hours per week do you dedicate to your blog?

* I try to put up at least one or two posts a week. It takes me about an hour to do each blog. So I'd say a few hours a week.

6.  What category of blog posts do you enjoy the most? 
* CRAFTS. I have incorporated crafts in every subject. It makes the content come to life and my students LOVE it.

7.  Where does your blog inspiration come from?
*Several of my ideas come from other blogs I've read, collaborating with my team members, and Pinterest!

8.  Which post that you've written are you most proud of?
*I love doing the Five for Friday posts and the Currently posts each month. However, I'm most proud of the post I dedicated to my father. He is the most wise and inspirational person I know. I made a post about his life lessons. 

9.  Is there any post you've been planning to do but have been postponing it for a while now?
* I'd love to purchase a design for my blog. Maybe this month after payday, I'll do that!

10.  What is your favorite aspect of blogging? 
*I love to read other teachers' blog post to get inspiration for my own classroom. 

11.  Which recipe, project, or idea on my blog would you be most likely to try yourself?  

* I love the Halloween mummy treats Amanda at Cupcakes and Lesson Plans made for her students. I'm going to try that next Halloween. How cute!
