Liebster Award

I love meeting other educators through this blog and on Twitter. I have made a lot of connections and I've gotten a ton of support. When I found out that one of those educators had selected my blog for the Liebster Award, I was thrilled. The Liebster Award is given to a fellow blogger who has fewer than 200 followers. This Award would certainly give that blogger a lot more exposure and their blog would no longer be a well kept secret. Thank you Nancy at Teaching is Elementary for this wonderful nomination!

The Rules for the Liebster Award are:
1. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
2. You must answer the questions that the nominator set for you.
3. You must create 11 new questions for the people you nominate.
4. You must choose 11 other blogs with fewer than 200 followers to nominate and link them in your post.
5. No tag backs to the blog that nominated you, but do leave a comment on their post with the URL of your Liebster post.

 Here goes...
