Liebster Award

I have been nominated by Bren at Bren In Room 10 for a Liebster Award. This means I need to answer 11 things about me and nominate 11 other bloggers to do the same. Thanks so much for the nomination, Bren!

1. Why and how long ago did you start blogging
I've posted off an on for about 3 years, but I've really started doing more this year. I started so that I could have a way to connect to my favorite bloggers and to share my classroom stories.

2. What one word sums up the heart of your blog and why?
Creativity. I am a creative person who teaches 25 creative kiddos. I love to teach things in new ways and incorporate things that other teachers may not. I love reader other creative blogger's posts!

3. Is there something you learned late in your blog journey you wished you knew before?  
The number of followers doesn't really matter. I only have a few official followers, but I have a huge following for each post I make. It feels great to know that I could potentially help out another teacher.

4. What is your favorite past time other than blogging?
Making crafts! I love to make things for my house and classroom. I'm also planning our June wedding!

5. How many hours per week do you dedicate to your blog?
Some weeks my poor blog gets no loving, but when I do have time, I'll spend about 2-4 hours creating posts.

6.  What category of blog posts do you enjoy the most? 
Craftivities posts- I love creating some art to go with our writing!

7.  Where does your blog inspiration come from?
A lot of my ideas come from our second grade team at my school. And of course, Pinterest!

8.  Which post that you've written are you most proud of?
My Five for Fridays. I really enjoy writing those (when I get time) and I think they are the most fun to share.

9.  Is there any post you've been planning to do but have been postponing it for a while now?
Not a specific post, but I want to have some create a blog design for me.

10.  What is your favorite aspect of blogging?
Sharing is caring! I love sharing what I do and reading about what other teacher bloggers do, too!
