Tag Tag Tag Tag...

I'm grateful to Mrs. K. of The Teacher Garden for "tagging" me for this unique blog tag party! Thanks, Mrs. K! Be sure to stop by her blog and check out the neat things she has going on there!
Here's how to play:
Rules
Post the rules.
Answer 10 questions.
Create 10 questions. 
Tag 10(ish) people and link them with your post. Let them know they have been tagged.

Here are the questions she wanted me to answer:
1. What grade do you teach (or did you teach), and how long have you been teaching?
Currently 8th Grade! I'm about to finish my 11th year teaching!

2. What is your favorite subject or topic to teach?
Hmm, I've taught English Language Arts for 8 years, so I guess English? I thoroughly enjoyed K, 2nd, and 5th and all subject areas too!

3. If you weren't teaching, what would you be doing?
Wow!! My Online Career would launch into FULL TIME MODE!! How fun would that be? 

4. What do you like to do when you're not at school?
I spend lots of time working in my backyard, playing with my dogs/cat, painting, and lots of time on computer in my "blogging, teaching product, networking" ventures....

5. What is your favorite way to incorporate technology into your classroom?
Using the smart board notebooks, promethean flip charts, and VIDEOS to incorporate into lessons which seem to hold students' attention in that long 97 minute block of English!

6. How long have you been blogging, and why did you start your blog?
I began blogging in October 2011; after seeing all the super teaching blogs and what there was to offer and gain through one, I decided I was missing out not having one!

7. What is your favorite book and why? I LOVE vampire novels! (not the scary kind); I think it's because I love romance books! 

8. What do you always carry in your purse?
Lipstick, mascara, cell phone, and headache medicine! It never fails, anytime I leave without the Advil, I get a headache!

9. Share your easiest/quickest/yummiest recipe.
Chicken Breasts in Uncle Ben's Wild Rice Original Recipe, smothered cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, cream of cheddar cheese soups, and add one can of mushroom pieces! Bake for 1hr. 1/2 (uncovered last 30 min)---VOILA! Happy Hubby!

10. What is the best (or most exciting) thing that's happened to you so far in 2012?
TAXES DONE!! Is that sad? Okay, I got a beautiful pair of sapphire/diamond earrings from my hubby for Valentine's Day, card, and a 1 lb. bag of conversation heart! It is usually a sweet card and conversation hearts! Never forget the conversation hearts!

There!! Because I didn't have to ponder answers, I'm going to use these same questions...So, TAG! You're it:

Yes, I guess I cheated. I used the same questions, and I selected 5 blogs as opposed to 10! It's okay! Just pass along the fun! It's fun to get to know others, and I enjoy learning about others. However, it seems to take a really long time to choose 10+ blogs that haven't already done a particular post or received an award, so I was trying to make it a little faster and leave some for others! 
Okay, I was pushed for time..... :) lol!!
And here are your 10 questions:
1. What grade do you teach (or did you teach), and how long have you been teaching?
2. What is your favorite subject or topic to teach?
3. If you weren't teaching, what would you be doing?
4. What do you like to do when you're not at school?
5. What is your favorite way to incorporate technology into your classroom?
6. How long have you been blogging, and why did you start your blog?
7. What is your favorite book and why?
8. What do you always carry in your purse?
9. Share your easiest/quickest/yummiest recipe.
10. What is the best (or most exciting) thing that's happened to you so far in 2012?
Have Fun, Ladies! Can't wait to hear your answers to these questions!
