Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you to Stephanie from starringinfirstgrade
for the nomination of this award. With only three posts, with none yet school related, I am very honored and hope to meet many other teacher bloggers out there.

Seven random facts huh?

1. My oldest son starts high school this year and I think that I am more worried than he is. My son/daughter twins start 2nd grade this year and they are COMPLETE opposites in just about everything. My older son has had some behavioral issues in elementary school and I am sure God gave me him so that I could be a better teacher to some of my students, especially the boys.

2. I just graduated with a Masters in Educational Administration and now Im almost positive that I do not want to be an administrator. The good thing is that I am more knowledgeable about what principals go through. I might even have a little more compassion.

3. CAKE POPS! I love making cake pops. I have made many different kinds for all seasons. Today Im trying for the first time beach balls for a summer pool/PTA meeting tomorrow. Here is an apple for the teachers, I made these for my kids school staff last year. Cake on the inside and chocolate on the outside. Edible YUM!

4. I live in a townhome and my uncle lives right next to me and next to him live my parents. I love having my parents so close. Majority of the time we barbeque, even in the winter, on Saturdays and play games after dinner.

5. I love all games. Our family favorites are Farkle, Spicy Farkle, Scrabble, Scattergories, Blotkus, and a game that I played as a kid, 20 years ago, Scotland Yard.

6. I have many favorite TV shows that I record and save up to watch on my vacations, usually.
Bones, Hawaii 5-O, NCIS, Hardcore Pawn, Closer, Burn Notice and Teen Mom and a few more that has slipped my mind.

7. I don't really have a "hometown". I grew up in the military and moved every 3 years. I was born at Fort Bliss, in El Paso, Texas, then to New Mexico, Arizona, Germany, Florida and California. I think this lifestyle is why I feel the need to move my classroom around every few months or so.
