I went for a ride today with my husband to a part of town we have never visited. While we were there, we saw a new development of houses and we decided to check out the houses. I said "I have found my future home". I just thought it was great that my first name is a street name. LOL.

Hope everyone is enjoying the new year! I have had a busy three weeks of school. Nothing too exciting to report and no good pictures. Maybe, next time!

Happy Reading!

Thank You!

I was nominated for the "Liebster Award." What a nice surprise. I love that she is from Canada because my city borders Canada!!! We could be neighbors. I always feel the love when other bloggers comment or visit my blog! 

Go check out her blog HERE:From Third to Fourth  

Here are the questions I was asked:

1. What is your favourite subject to teach?
Reading and Writing

2. What is your least favourite part of the school day?

Bus dismissal. I have to do it everyday. I have never liked it! 

3. How long have you been teaching?

I have taught for 9 years in my own class room, but I was also a substitute for 5 years. This year I have been lucky enough to be in a grade 2 as a long term substitute teacher. I love it! 

4. What is the worst job you have ever had?

    .. I wonder if this is teaching or just in general. LOL! I worked at Burger King for 4 years in high school and college. It was fun, but not during dinner rush! 

5. What is your favourite t.v. show?

Well, if I have to I have to pick just one -  I love Glee! 

6. What song are you embarrassed to admit you like? 

     None really, but people pick on my b/c I love 80's music! 

7. How long have you been blogging?

About 2 years! 

8. What is your favourite teaching resource? 

     I have a ton: Blogs, Pinterest, TPT, my co-workers ( LOL ) 

9. What is your favourite childhood school memory?
    In 7th and 8th grade we had a small study hall, but the teacher let us read for enjoyment on Thursdays and Fridays! 

10. What is your favouriet adult school memory?

I think the day I turned in my last paper for my reading diagnostics class. I learned a lot that semester, but the professor was TOUGH!  

I wish I had time to nominate some blogs, but I am in work mode right now! Maybe later! 

Happy Reading!
