Such a wonderful surprise....

I came home to a wonderful surprise this evening!  I found a super-sweet comment from Kara at Sped-venture! (Don't you just love the name of her blog?!)  I found out I received the Versatile Blogger Award! I feel so honored to be a part of this awesome community of teacher-bloggers! Make sure you check her blog out!

The rules for the award go like this:

-Thank the person who gave you the award:
Thank you so much Kara from Sped-Ventures!  I love meeting other special education teachers!

-Tell seven random things about yourself:

1.  I am married to a wonderful man, who is also a teacher and we have two amazing daughters. They are 4 and just turned 6.  They keep us very busy and entertained.  I can't imagine my life without them!
2.  I want to get my masters from Full Sail Education Media Design & Technology.  How cool would it be to learn how to create your own education apps to review/practice the standards you are teaching in your class?  Kids are such tech junkies and would love to spend time on the ipod/ipad.  

3. I love to read blogs.  I get sucked in and an hour magically disappears!
4.  I am also addicted to Pinterest.  (Again, I sit down and an hour disappears.)
5.  I wish I could teach in house shoes everyday.  I hate shoes.
6.  I love chocolate and mountain dew!  The more stressed I am, the more I consume.  Not a good example for the kids.
7.  I have been teaching for 13 years, and I still love it.  I love the kids.  They make me smile.   I love it when they make connections to learning and "get it".

-And then, give the award to some newly discovered blogs! Check out these great blogs!  They always have a ton of freebies to share!



  1. I am so glad to read a blog by another special educator! I have been reading you blog for a while and really have enjoyed it! Thought i would leave a comment and let you know hat you and other teacher bloggers have inspired me to start blogging myself! Come check it out sometime!


  2. I, too, love chocolate, and my other addiction is Dr. Pepper. I always feel awkward drinking Dr. Pepper in front of children at lunch time when we are supposed to be preaching to them about how terrible it is for you! But, dude, I NEED my caffeine kick, and I don't really like coffee!

  3. Simone- I stopped by your blog and I love how you are so positive!! It's so easy to focus on the negatives. It's really nice to see the good side of life for a change!
    Thanks for stopping by!
