11 in '11

I'm linking up with Hadar and Kristin (two of my favorite teacher-bloggers). for the 11 in '11 linky party.

11. Favorite movie you watched: Probably Breaking Dawn, I <3 me some sparkely vampires.

10. Favorite TV series: Glee or Criminal Minds (2 complete opposites, I know!)

9. Favorite restaurant: Lahn Pad Thai, a tiny hole-in-the-wall place that makes the best Pad Thai!

8. Favorite new thing you tried: My tattoo, it was my 30th birthday present to myself.

7. Favorite gift you got: A tie between my Erin Condren planner and my new Danskos.

6. Favorite thing you pinned: I’ve been pinning lot’s of wedding shower ideas lately that I <3 (my little brother is getting married in august)

5. Favorite blog post: I’m not sure, I don’t think I’ve been blogging enough to have one.

4. Best accomplishment: Creating a classroom community and setting up routines and procedures with my kiddos this year.  Last year (2010-2011) was a tough school year and none of those things really “gelled” with my class.  This year is 10 times better, in fact I had the best observation I’ve ever had this past November!

3. Favorite picture:

2. Favorite memory: Getting to spend a week in Kotzebue (a village on the Bering Sea), renovating the Boys and Girls Club and hanging out with the kiddos up there.

1. Goal for 2012:  I have 3:

1.To be more organized within my work/personal life and to have more of a   balance between the two (hopefully my Erin Condren planner will help)
2. Spend time in my Bible everyday.
3. Do a better job teaching Math.  I am very confident in my ability to teach Reading, but I know that I need to work on my Math lessons.


  1. So glad you joined the Linky Party! Breaking Dawn and Glee are also on my list of Favs from this year. I just got my 9th tattoo this year and I think it's one of my favorites!

  2. Thank you for linking up!!!
    I am so impressed and I admire you so much for going to that village. That is awesome.
    I, too, want to spend more time in my bible every day. I have been reading it almost every day since the summer and I want to read it EVERY DAY and start my day off that way, too.
    I am very jealous of your planner. VERY.
