Thank you, Mrs. Tretbar's Library for the nomination. I'm so glad we found each other, as I am already thinking of ways to implement the things I've found on your lovely library blog.  The Liebster Award is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers but that "deserve to have many more."

The rules for this award are as follows:
  1. Thank the Liebster-winning blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. Post eleven facts about yourself.
  3. Answer the eleven questions your nominator asked.
  4. Create eleven questions for your nominees.
  5. Nominate 5 to 11 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been chosen.
  6. Display the Liebster Award logo.
Eleven things about me:
  1. My husband is a pastor, and we strive to live our faith. For that reason, you'll find it peppered here and there in my posts.

  11. I actually like the CCSS!
Answers to Mrs. Tretbar's Library 's questions:

  2. What is your favorite grade to work with? I really enjoy teaching 5th grade.

  5. Name 3 of your favorite children's books? The Story of Ferdinand, Flap Your Wings, and Olivia
  6. Where is your favorite place to travel? The beach!

  9. Why did you become a teacher? It's thrilling to lead someone to an "Aha!" moment. 
  10. What is your favorite thing to do during summer vacation? Be with my children.
