Tag! & More!

I was tagged by Tessa today from Tales from Outside the Classroom. I decided to wait to participate until I had all my stuff around for school tomorrow! Now for the fun. :)

Here's the scoop {rules}!...
Post these rules.
*Answer the 10 questions that the tagger posted for you.
*Create 10 questions of your own to ask the people that you're about to tag. (I'm missing how many people I'm suppose to tag, so I'm going to make up my own number!)

Here are my questions...


1. Who made the biggest impact on your decision to become a teacher?
My mom is a teacher and after spending lots of time helping her out in the classroom I was inspired to become a teacher. :)
2. What has been one of your favorite teaching moments?
This happened my first year of teaching. I got hired in where I'm teaching now the Friday before school started and it was only part time. I taught first grade in the morning for math, and ELA. Then, in the afternoon they were put in with the second graders for science, social studies, and Bible. There were 12 first graders and I believe 10 second graders. It was about the fourth week into school when the principal called me out in the hallway to tell me that he wanted to see me before I left today. I remember thinking yikes! did I do something wrong? am I in trouble? I think he could tell by the look on my face because then he said well I guess I could just ask you now...would you be interested in teaching first grade full time? I was so excited! :)
3. What is your favorite thing to teach?
I LOVE teaching writing! 
4. What is your favorite thing to do outside of school?
I enjoy volunteering with activities through my church. I help out at Clubhouse, which is a children's program on Wednesday nights and youth group activities on Thursday nights. I also love to shop and play card games. :)
5. What do you plan to do over summer break?
I'm going back to Bogota, Colombia this summer on a mission trip. We help out at an orphanage there for a week and outreach to the community through a church there. I'm also planning on running a fireworks tent at the local grocery store. It's a fundraiser that will help a couple at our church adopt 3 kids from Bogota, Colombia. Oh...and I'm taking another class towards my Masters. 
6. If you weren't teaching, what would you be doing?
I'm really not sure...probably something in a science field? 
7. If there was only one thing people knew about me, I wish they would know....
That it is disgusting to lick your fingers after you eat something like Doritos. :) 
8. What is your favorite tv show?
I use to love The Office...but notsomuch this season. I would have to say now I enjoy Once Upon a Time or 30 Rock.
9. What are you addicted to?  (think Diet Coke, flip flops, etc!) :)
Starbucks anything! 
10. What is the best non-children's book that you've ever read?
This question is hard! I love books....um I guess I would have to say Praise Habit by David Crowder

So...here are my 10 questions...
1. Was there a blog that inspired you to create your own? If so which blog inspired you?
2. What is your favorite place to visit?
3. What are you planning on doing over the summer?
4. What is your favorite kind of writing utensil?
5. Do you create things for TpT? If so which item are you the most proud of that you posted?
6. What do you love to teach?
7. What is your most memorable experience from school. 
8. What have of behavior management system do you use in your classroom?
9. What's your favorite color? (I'm running out of question ideas!)
10. Are you counting down to summer break?

Whew....and here are the fantastical bloggers that I would love to hear all about!
