Wow!!! I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award! So exciting! It is so nice to know there are new bloggers out there like me to support one another. I definitlely feel like part of a new, incredible teaching community and I have learned so much from all of my new bloggy buds.

Here are the rules for the award:

1. Thank the person that nominated you with a link back to them. A BIG THANK YOU to.....

and Chrissy at Buzzing with Ms. B

2. Tell seven things about you:

1. When I was little, I really wanted to be a zookeeper when I grew up. And hey, I kind of am since a classroom full of 22 seven year is definitely like a zoo! 
2. I really love corgis. I'm not sure what it is about them- yes I do! Those big smiles and short legs!- but I've always wanted one. Now I have three!

3. I, like corgis, am short... 5'1''. 
4. I am a really super picky eater. I rarely ever try new things. The hubby makes fun of me because I will order off the kid's menu a lot. 
5. I love to be at home. It's my favorite place in the whole world. 
6. My favorite TV Show is FRIENDS. I have all 10 seasons on DVD. 
7. I taught fourth grade my first two years of teaching. I have taught second for the last three years and LOVE second!!!

3. Pass the love on to 15 new blogs (not sure if I will be able to list 15, but I promise to add to the list!). You should definitely check out these blogs with some amazing teachers and ideas:
