My 11 questions from Kristin 

1 - Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because many of the friends at my school were starting to get into it and it looked fun and a great way to meet people! I also started to read others blogs more and more often and thought, "hm I could do this!"   I love sharing ideas and seeing others ideas!

2 - What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I love being able to share my ideas with whoever!  I also love the designing part of the blog...they are so cute!!!
3 - Which Linky is your favorite so far?
I love the Five for Friday from Doodlebugs because it is a quick snapshot of five things and I really enjoy it! 
4 - What advice do you have for beginning teachers?
COMMUNICATE with your parents and COLLABORATE with your team!  Life will be a lot easier if you do those two things! :)
5 - What is your favorite part about teaching?
I love when the kids get excited about learning and seem like they are having fun learning. 
6 - What is your ultimate career goal?
This changes pretty often.  I absolutely LOVE technology and the idea of "flipping" the classroom and doing BYOD with students so I think that eventually I would like to somehow be the "technology coach" on how to do this and give guidance to teachers in it. 
7 - What hobbies do you have outside of teaching?
I love shopping and hanging out with my friends!

Somewhere...ANYWHERE with a beach!  I am craving the sunlight and warm temps!

Rio Grande..a Mexican restaurant!
10 - If your life could be a TV show, which show would you choose?
New cracks me up!
