Liebster Award

I am flattered to be nominated for the Leibster Award.  I was nominated by a lovely lady named Julie over at
Teacher Fluff and Really Good Stuff.  Thank you so much!

 1.  Why and how long ago did you start blogging?
I started my blog over a year ago but wasn't able to fully commit to blogging.  I recently got a blog makeover and now I am ready to go!  I started blogging because I was impressed and inspired by so many other teacher bloggers.  I love how the teacher blogger community shares ideas and strategies with each other.  I love that everyone comes together to help students
2. What one word sums up the heart of your blog and why?
Positive.  I want to focus on the joys of helping students learn.  I also want to help teachers by providing resources for them to use. 
3.  Is there something you learned late in your blogging journey you wished you knew before? 
Yes!  I thought blogging would be easy but it is actually hard work.  The most difficult part is finding the time to dedicate.  I wish I had known earlier to plan, plan, plan!
4.   What is your favorite past time other than blogging?
I love exploring, exercising, and having fun!!
5.  How many hours per week do you dedicate to your blog?  
Lately I have been trying to dedicate at least 3-4 hours per week.  I just started so I have a long way to go!
6.  What category of blog posts do you enjoy the most? 
I love blogs that give me ideas for centers and activities I can do in the classroom.
7.  Where does your blog inspiration come from? 
My inspiration actually came from my soror/friend/coworker Latoya. at Flying Into First. Her blog and TpT products are AMAZING!  She keeps me motivated.
8.  Which post that you've written are you most proud of? 

I am probably the most proud of a very old post about my first TpT
product.  It took me FOREVER to make the product and forever to figure out how to blog about it! 

9.   Is there any post you have been planning to do, but have postponing it for a while now?
Yes!  I really want to blog about how to keep learning on track.  I learned so many strategies from a program facilitated through Tennessee State University called SITES-M which focused on increasing math achievement.  I think the strategies are very helpful and I want to share them with others. 
10.  What is your favorite aspect of blogging?
My favorite aspect is learning about other teacher bloggers and gaining inspiration from them. 
11.  Which recipe, project, or idea on my blog would you be most likely to try yourself? 
I really liked taking a look at your classroom.  I noticed in one for you pictures that you had a organization for your math workshop posted on your board.  I'd love to try that.  Click on the picture to see the other amazing things in Julie's classroom.
