Now for the fun stuff!!!
Janelle over at Mrs. Jannelle's Kindergarten Kingdom has honored me by presenting me with the Versitle Blogger award!!
By accepting this award I must abide by the following rules :-) So here we go!
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. Thank you SO much Jannelle!! I am so honored you picked me!
2. Include a link to their site. Mrs. Jannelle's Kindergarten Kingdom
3. Include the award image in your post. See picture above :)
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself.
- I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida and have never lived anywhere else.
- I have been married to my awesome (most of the time) husband for 20 years and we have 4 great kiddos; our daughter Ashley is 24 (and she is a first grade teacher), our boys Bobby and Garrett are 21 and 19, and my step daughter Caroline is 27 (and she not only teaches pre-k but she is also the director of the pre-school) Caroline is the mommy of my sweet step-granddaughters 7 year old Kaelie and 4 year old Kayden
- I am about to begin my 13 year teaching. I have taught 2 years of 3rd grade, 2 years of 4th grade, and getting ready to start my 9th year of kindergarten (where my heart lives)
- I am a HUGE college football fan! I LOVE watching my UCF Knights play both on TV and in person!
- I LOVE to shop! I love to shop for clothes and purses and for my classroom.
- I recently bought a sewing machine and have been learning how to sew! I have made 4 cushions to use in my classroom as well as a seat cushion and back cushion for my classroom rocking chair. So far I haven't managed much except for square or rectangular cushions but hey I'm learning!
- I didn't graduate high school, I dropped out at the end of my junior year (I was an idiot), but I got my GED right afterwards. Now I have a Bachelor's Degree, National Board Certification, a Master's Degree, and I am working on a 2nd Master's degree so I am living proof that you can do anything you set out to do no matter what stupid choices you have made in the past.
