Liebster Award: Discovering New Blogs

I woke up this morning and grabbed my phone. Half awake, I was scrolling through my emails...Sports Authority (Delete--Ain't nobody got time fo that!)...Artsy Abode (Delete--can't afford that right now)... The Short and Sassy Teacher nominated me for an award?! I'm awake now! I don't care how big or small an award may seem, it is always the thought that counts. I am so flattered. Erin nominated me for a Liebster Award. I started this blog a few months ago with the hope to share and gain ideas from other teachers in the blog community. I was always told that I have a way of putting my sense of humor into my writing, I wanted to do that again. It is slowly, but surely coming out. Thank you to all of my followers! Each time I get an email saying I have a new follower, I do a happy dance RIGHT. IN. THE. MOMENT. Thank you for the encouragement and support. I love your comments and support. I know that this will make my first full year of teaching memorable! For that, I am excited to get it started!

Here are the "rules" for accepting this nomination:

1. Link back to the blog that nominated me
2. Nominate 5-11 blogs with fewer than 200 followers
