Tears...My First Award! The Liebster Award!

I first would like to thank Tara from ...and they all fall down.  I think this was her way of telling me to post on my blog.  Lol!  It HAS been a month!   Apologies to my 27 followers!  I'm pretty sure that you all understand...Life gets a little busy!  Now back to my fabulous Liebster Award...

I was nominated for a Leibster Blog Award's the 411 on Jennifer The Extra Energetic Educator!

Questions from My Nominator:
1. What is your favorite subject to teach?
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to teach math!  In the morning, in the afternoon, inside the building, outside the building, on the playground, in the hall...I LOVE math!

2. What is your favorite color?
My favorite color has evolved since I was younger.  Up until that last few years it was and has always been purple.  Now I'm leaning more towards pink and red

3. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I wanted to share my Teachers Pay Teachers products.  Then I thought that it would be a great idea to help teachers find helpful resources for their classrooms.  I love helping people!  You never know when you will need help!

4. Why did you choose teaching as a profession?
I've always wanted to be a teacher since childhood.  I remember teaching my dolls and attempting to teach my brother.  On a more serious note...there have been so many teachers that have influenced me, and I want to spread that love for learning to others.
5. How much money do you think teachers should make a year?
$5,000,000,000,000,000...sorry the only reason I stopped with the 0s was because my index finger became tired of typing the 0s.  Teachers are seriously WAY underpaid!  Oh, yeah, it's just my opinion.

Ughh...ughhh...April!?!  It's a refreshing, renewing kind of month!
