Blogging Excitement!

I am new to this blogging world, but I am loving every minute of it! When on my ONE vacation of this busy summer, I got a comment from one of my followers...Nikki at Uncommon to the Core nominated me for TWO awards! It made my vacation!! It has taken me several weeks to get back into my "thinking ahead for the coming school year" routine, and back to blogging, but I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Nikki! She is so creative and has wonderful ideas - you should go check her blog out!

Here are my 7 random facts!
1. I was born in Charleston, SC - and I dream of going back there to live and teach!
2. I have never wanted to do anything else but be a teacher. 
3. I have my Masters in Reading and Literacy, but my favorite subject to teach is Math.
4. I hated Math as a student, which is why I believe that I enjoy teaching Math (because I know what it is like to be completely confused).
5. In the next 5 years, I would like to become an Academic Coach.
6. I HATE for my food to touch...yuck!!
7. I decorated my classroom in red, black, and white because they are the colors of the college I attended...Valdosta State University - Go Blazers and I am a big University of Georgia fan...Go Dawgs!!

My nominees for The Versatile Blogger Award are: (drum roll please.....)
*I am making my list of blogs I want to nominate and I will be updating this list over the next couple of days!

Here are the rules for The Versatile Blogger Award as I understand them:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. 
2. Include a link to their site.
3. Include the award image in your post.
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself. 
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award. 
6. When nominating, include a link to their site.
7. Let other bloggers know they have been nominated.

Again, thanks to Nikki, she nominated me for The Liebster Blog Award which highlights those blogs with less than 200 followers. I am hoping to reach 200 followers by Christmas. So PLEASE spread the word about my blog and follow me on Pinterest for some of my other ideas. I am lucky have been accepted and encouraged by fellow teachers and bloggers! I am excited to say that over the past 24 hours, I have gone from 7 followers to 20!! Wooohooo :)
