A bit ago, my good friend Danielle from Live.Love.Math sent me an email about a Leibster nomination.  So here goes!

What a great way to meet new people and find new blogs!

So here is how it works:

To accept the nomination I must:

  2. Nominated 5-11 blogs with fewer than 200 followers
  3. Answer the question posted by you or by your nominator
  4. Share 11 random facts about yourself
  5. Create 11 questions for your nominees
  6. Contact your nominees and let them know you nominated them
My Nominees:
Christine from Math-Central

Questions from Danielle:
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?  That's easy...Traverse City, Michigan!  It is so gorgeous there.  The town is big enough to have everything you need, yet still has a small town feel.
What is your favorite grade/subject to teach?  I love what I currently do (6th grade math), but my background is elementary and there are days I think about going back.  
What types of books do you like to read in your spare (ha!) time?  The key here is "spare" time.  With two kids there's little of that!  I guess I'd have to say that I don't really have a favorite.  It really depends on what I'm in the mood for at the time.
What is your favorite thing to shop for?  Shoes!
What is your favorite type of shoe to teach in?  Sandals (if it's been a long day...no shoes!)
What was your most memorable teaching moment?  I once had a student whose mom was dying of cancer.  The family went on a Disney Cruise in February.  When he came back we had a long discussion about the trip because my family was planning a Disney Cruise in July.  I asked him if there was anything about the cruise he would do differently.  His response was that he wished he could have taken me with him.  It was then that I realized that teaching is about so much more than our subject matter and the state test!
What was your best vacation you ever went on?  My family went on a Disney Cruise in 2008 (and we're doing it again this Christmas!).  It was an amazing experience and we are looking forward to going back.
What is your favorite meal?  Anything that ends with chocolate!
If you won a million dollars to spend on anything, what would you buy?  I would pay off all bills first, then buy a new house (on land), and maybe a new car, too!  Oh, and a vacation of course!
What was the last movie you saw?  Did you like it?  I don't go to the movies much so I honestly don't remember the last movie I saw.  
What is your favorite thing about the school at which you currently teach?  The kids.  I grew up in a very small town with little or no diversity.  I work at a very diverse school and I love to see all of the kids welcoming one another and working together to make the school a great place to be!
