I Heart Your Blog Award: A dear friend of mine taught me a profound lesson several years ago when she shared her personal mantra, "There is only love." Since then, I have realized that by adopting this mantra in my own life, I have changed my whole approach to everything I experience. That being said, as a total newbie to the teacher's blogging world, I discovered this gold mine of amazingly creative and talented teachers out here in cyber space. There are so many of you spreading the teaching LOVE around the globe by sharing your ideas and experiences. I just had to create a blog award to celebrate those of you who touched my heart and inspired me, increasing my LOVE of teaching.
- Give the "I Heart Your Blog" Award to your favorite Top 10 blogs that have touched your heart and inspired your teaching by listing them on your blog.
- Contact that person and let them know of their heartfelt award.
- When you receive the award, copy and paste the graphic on your blog and give a shout out to the person who nominated you.
- Spread the LOVE by passing the "I Heart Your Blog" Award on to your Top 10.
I tip my hat to these blogging teachers, and all the others whom I adore, for inspiring children and instilling in them an excitement for learning!
The Versatile Blogger Award (10/6/11)
1. Link back to the bloggers who awarded it to me. (Check. I did that above.)
2. Share 7 things about myself.
3. Nominate 15 other blogs.
- I toyed with the idea of being a high school English teacher in college but settled on double-majoring in English and Art History.
- I am a freelance journalist and part-time copywriter. I LOVE to write and the part of writing that most people loathe (research and composing the outline), I truly relish.
- If I had the whole world’s supply of men to choose from, I’d still pick my husband to marry (11 years and counting!).
- My two favorite yoga poses are tree and pigeon. [Namaste]
- Coffee and candy are my weaknesses. (They’re great alone but together, it’s euphoria.)
- I like to raid the recyclables whenever possible to use them in activities with my son. I’d be lost without empty cereal boxes, not to mention sticker paper and Microsoft Publisher.
