Liebster Award! What! What!

Well folks, great news! The Gemini Teacher has nominated little ol' me for my first award! How cool is that? It's called the Liebster Award! I think it's a great little way to introduce myself to other newbies and share other newbies!
The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.

Liebster Award Rules:
1. Link back to the blog that nominated you (check)
2. Nominate 5-11 blogs with fewer than 200 followers (working on that)
3. Answer the questions posted for you by your nominator (check)
4. Share 11 random facts about yourself (check)
5. Create 11 questions for your nominees (check)
6. Contact your nominees and let them know you nominated them (work in progress)

So here are my questions posed by Denay! :)
1. Favorite subject or topic to teach?
I love love love teaching math. I was the world's WORST math student, but now I think I enjoy teaching it because I know how hard it can be for those kids that just don't get it on the first try!

Photography & Emergency escapes!

7. What do you consider a challenge as a blogger?
Writing daily ... or even frequently! I have two babies, a dog, a husband, a job... where in the world do people find the time to blog daily?

Creative. Loving (sorta). Sassy!

9. Best piece of advice given and/or received?
"Be yourself."

10. What do you remember from your very first day as a teacher?
I was so nervous I had sweaty pits... LOL Hey, I'm all about honesty! I was nervous, constantly checking my handwritten schedule, scared to death I would forget to take the kids to lunch... oh boy. That was fun!

11. Do you have a bucket list? One thing on it?
I want to enter (and win) a watermelon eating contest!
