Its a TAG party

I think that I really need to work on my cardio because I have been tagged again!! My Grade 2's would definitely laugh at me right now for being too slow.

I am very thankful that Stephanie from 3rd Grade Thoughts tagged me.  I had a lot of fun learning more about Stephanie in her post, you should definitely check it out.

1. What is your favorite subject/unit to teach?

Hmmmmm.... this is a tricky one but I absolutely love teaching art.  I am sure you kinda got that idea by the number of posts that are related to art lessons.  However, art is not my specialty.  I did take high level art courses in university, but it was just for fun.  I majored in Biology and Math, and I LOVE teaching these subjects as well.  But my passion is art.

2. What is your favorite school supply?

I like this question because I have many.... but one of my favorites is my collection of multi-colored sharpies.  I fell in love with my mentors collection when I taught Grade 2.  At my farewell party she purchased me my own set.  I couldn't help but laugh, because by the end of my student teaching experience we had gotten really close and she bought me everything that I love.  I even received a note pad covered in polka dots.  

3. What is your favorite non-teaching blog?

I answered this with Erikas, but I will give a different answer to this one (I have soo many favorites that this is easy).  I really enjoy reading Confessions of a 20 Something.  She talks about makeup, events, and her love for Carrie Underwood.  I find it very amusing.

4.  If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you visit?

I still really want to go to Hawaii!! And if Courtney from Teaching in Paradise still wants a substitute teacher.... :)

5. Have you ever made anything from Pinterest? How did it turn out?

I am a Pinterest Addict... and I have made a few things.

I made the Easter hand print craft with my nephew and it turned out awesome!! I also saw a butterfly footprint idea that I want to try next.

I am also using the shower curtain rings for scarf organization and it is working wonderfully.

Thank you Pinterest.

6. What's your cure for a bad day?

I am easy.. wine and chocolate usually do the trick.  If it is really bad I have to do the trio: wine-chocolate-hot tub.

7. What is one piece of advice that you would give to a newbie teacher blogger?

Well I am also a newbie so.... have fun! Be yourself and share your stories, lessons, ideas, or creations.

8. What's one item that is always in your fridge?

Have I said wine too much??? Ok, my second item that is always in my fridge is Milk.  You need milk to grow tall and strong!

9. What are your plans for this summer?

Work lots and save up some money! I also want to travel to Kelowna and go on a cheese/wine tour.. I really am not an alcoholic even though I have said wine a few times in this post....

10. What is one thing you never leave the house without?

Hand sanitizer.  This is one of my must have teaching items in my bag.  I find I am always around one sicky so I am always prepared.

 I am still catching my breath, but I will tag some of you slow ones tomorrow! Look out, I am coming for you!!


  1. Amy! I love reading your posts. You crack me up :)

    AND the offer is still open :) I haven't had a good sub in a long while..I would feel very confident they are in the hands of a fellow (awesome) blogger friend :D BTW, if you ever decide to move there are a ton of jobs here. Hey! There are even two openings in my apt building!!

    Hope I was tempting :P

    1. Courtney you crack me up!!! I would move in a heat beat!! There aren't as many jobs here sadly, but hopefully soon. I could definitely teach in paradise any day.
