Here are Courtney's questions and my answers:
1. What is the one thing that you couldn't live without in your class?
The projector that hooks up to my laptop. I use this ALL day for everything from showing movies to projecting written instructions.
2. If you could teach any grade, what would it be and why?
High School Honors English for two reasons: My grandfather was a middle school English teacher and I got the chance to substitute teach one of these classes. So much fun!
3. What is your absolute favorite food?
Pasta! It could be covered in cheese, marinara, butter, or alfredo. I love it all!
4. What does a typical morning breakfast look like for you?
2 eggs over easy, a piece of toast, and at least one cup of coffee.
5. Nicest thing that a parent has ever said to you?
Thank you for teaching my child the way he needs to be taught. He's responded so well to you!
6. Most touching moment with/from a student
One of my grade level teachers taught her class how to sign my name and they signed/sang "Happy Birthday" to me.
7. Favorite website besides blogger and pinterest.
1000 Awesome Things. It highlights one of the million reasons to be happy each day that I often forget. It's the homepage on my laptop.
8. Best place you've ever traveled to and why?
That would be a tie between Deep Creek Lake in Maryland and The Outer Banks in North Carolina. I love the sun and water. Anytime I can mix the two is heaven to me.
9. What is your favorite thing to do on the weekends?
10. About how much time, on average, would you say that you spend doing things for school?
Oh, my. At least 1-2 hours a day, and that would be a good day!
