Liebster Award

Thank you so much Paula from Paula's Place for nominating me for a Liebster Award.I found out about this award directly from Paula's wonderful blog:The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.
To accept the nomination I must:

  1. What are you reading at the moment? I must admit most of the books I read are children's picture books. I have recently read "Teaching with Intention" by Debbie Miller and I highly recommend it to all educators. This is a very inspiring read.
  2. What is your fav sport to watch? I don't watch sport. Oh! I did watch the last state of Origin game! Does that count?
  3. How long have you been teaching? For nearly 20 years and I still love it.
  4. Who do you aspire to be? Me of course. That's a funny question.
  5. The place that relaxes you? My home.
  6. A piece of clothing you cannot do without is .... I would have to say my jeans.. love, love, love my jeans.
  7. Your fav place to shop? Oh too many to list.. I do like country markets and road side fruit stands.
  8. Something that you wish you had in your classroom? Another set of hands and eyes in the back of my head - even better - another teacher he he.. I could quite easily use an interactive whiteboard but I am pretty happy with the resources I already have.
