Thanks for being a follower and I will contact you soon about sending you the CD!

I received my first nomination!!!
I am tweaking the rules a bit--but isn't that what teacher's do, they tweak thing to make it fit their teaching style!  I am tweaking it to fit my blogging style!

First, I want to thank Mrs. D for nominating me!  She has a great blog with all sorts of tips!  I especially enjoyed her post on Tagxedo!  Her tutorial is well-written and helpful!  So thank your for the nomination!


Now for the rules of the giveaway!

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.  Thank you Miss D!!!!
2. Include a link to their site. You can click on her button!!!
3. Include the award image in your post.  Done!!!
4. Give 5 random facts about yourself. (I changed it from 7 to 5.)
5. Nominate 3 other bloggers for the award.  (That's another rule I changed.)
6. When nominated, include a link to their site.
7. Let other bloggers know they've been nominated.

Now for five random facts:
1. I can touch my nose with my tongue--cool!
2. I graduated with my undergraduate degree in Humanities, then taught computer classes in college!  When people asked me, "What are you going to do with your degree?"  I wished I had told them, I am going to teach computer classes.  I now have a Masters in Teaching--and love working with children.
3. I lived in Belgium for 16 months, and learned to speak Flemish.  I can still order Frites (fries) in Flemish and loved living there!  They have the best fries and chocolate in the world!
4. I can parallel park on both sides of the street.
5. My favorite big cities are Antwerp, Paris, London, New York City, and Chicago.

Now for the nominations:

  2. Found your blog through Farley's Linky Party. This is only our 2nd Currently. They are lots of fun. I love New York City also. Would love to go there again. I also would love to go to London! Maybe it's seeing the olympics on TV, but I have London fever! lol

    Hope you get a classroom soon!
