Leibster Award

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and a restful few days off! My Thanksgiving break is almost over. It has been a very busy few days. I spent the first part of the week in Las Vegas for the LEC (Lutheran Educators Conference). I sure did learn a lot of new things for the classroom and I am excited to share all of that with you. But first, before I do that, I was very surprised today when I found out that Tracy over at Multiage Days nominated me for a Leibster Award. Thank you, Tracy, for the nomination!

The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  It’s to show that new bloggers are appreciated and help spread the word about our little pieces of cyberspace.

Here are the rules:1. You must post 11 random things about yourself.2. Answer the questions that the nominator set for you.3. Create 11 questions for the people you nominate.4. Choose 11 other blogs with fewer than 200 followers to nominate and link them in your post.5. You cannot “tag back” the other blog, but leave a comment on this post with the URL of your Liebster post so I can learn more about you & see who you nominate.

Ok here we go! Here are the 11 random things about me.
1. I am an only child and my husband is as well.
2. I have the best family ever. My cousins are like brothers.
3. I have known that I wanted to teach since I was in 4th grade. I come from a long line of teachers. There are about 8 of us.

7. I am a huge Disney fan. I go to the parks a few times a month. It helps that my husband works there. 
8. I walked the 2003 LA marathon. Hardest thing I ever did! I don't think I will ever do a full marathon again, but at least I can say I did it. I have since done a few half marathons. That is more my kind of race.
