Since this is the second nomination for me- you can read more about this award and what it means in my first post here.
These are the questions that Michelle asked me!
~What/Who made you decide to be a teacher?
...My older sister is a huge inspiration for me. She has always just jumped head first into life without any regrets and I love that. She has truly inspired me to go after MY dreams and aspirations and not anyone else's!
~Where did you grow up?
...I was born in Tampa, Florida but grew up just west in the Brandon/Valrico, Florida area. We had strawberry fields, orange groves, and fruit stands pretty much in every direction if you looked out our backdoor. I loved it! It has since changed so much and I much prefer it here in quiet and small Newberry, Florida :)
~What is your favorite holiday?
...CHRISTMAS!!!!! I am such a Christmas freak! I start decorating the day after Thanksgiving if possible (sometimes before if my hubby lets me ;) ) Shopping, family time, baking, gift wrapping, tree decorating, house lights… You name and I love it… Not to mention I can pretty much recite the entire movie Elf… Don't judge- you know you love it too! ;)
~On Pinterest, what board to you pin to most frequently?
...For my teaching Pinterest board- I would say my "Organized is a Happy Classroom" board.. I believe organization is the key to success!
...My personal Pinterest board would be my "Baking Up Some Fun" board.. I have over 600 pins just on that board! HAHA! I <3 me some baking!
~Google, Yahoo, or Bing? Other?
...Google- i use it for EVERYTHING!
~What kind of vehicle do you drive? Does this say anything about your personality?
...I drive a Pontiac Torrent- its an SUV and I need one to travel with my pups to see my family in Tampa :) I wouldn't say it displays my personality though.. If I were to be honest, and I had tons of money laying around- I would definitely drive a BMW X5! :-P I have expensive taste I guess! :)
~Do you have any special talents?
...I can sew pretty much anything you want! All I need is a visual and I can do it!
~Mechanical pencil or old school #2?
...I love mechanical pencils if they are the good brands because it cuts down on SO much sharpening! I think pencil sharpening is my pet peeve.. lol!
~When you were a child, what did you 'want to be when you grew up'?
...I was convinced that I wanted to be a Veterinarian all the way until about 3 years ago! That's when faith took over and reality sank in that my path was created for teaching :)
