* Answer the 10 questions that the tagger posted for you

* Create 10 questions of your own to ask the people that you're about to tag

* Tag 10 people and link them with your post (and let them know they've been tagged!)

The first is Tammy over at 123teachwithme.

1. If you didn't teach, what would you want to do?  Something with computers or work in a library

9. Describe your first year of teaching in ONE word.  OVERWHELMING!!!!!
10. Did you play a sport in college?  NO, I was in the college choral group.

Here are the questions from Rachel at abseymour.

1. What is your favorite subject to teach?  This year it is math.  It differs from year to year and group to group! HA!!
2. What is your most embarrassing moment as a teacher?  Oh, my...I don't think you really need to know that...right???  My VERY first day of teaching 23 years ago...
No one told me the first day of school was a MAD house and to arrive an hour early.  I couldn't find a parking place and the principal was outside directing traffic and knew that I was late because I had been stuck in traffic that was backed up for more than a mile.  Needless to say, I have NEVER made that mistake again. 
(Sorry - I have NO idea what I did to make this highlighted!)
3. What is the most exciting thing you will do this summer?  We just bought my aunt/uncle's share of the family vacation place in Florida, so we plan on spending lots of time there.
4. What is your favorite holiday?  Any that gives me time to spend with my family!!!
5. What is the most important item you use in your classroom?  My projector with the bigscreen.  I have soooo many things I use it for!
6. What item would you love to have in your classroom?  A cute, cute, cute library!!!
7. What tip would you give to a new teacher?  Get managment under your belt as soon as possible.  Without classroom management, your day/life is so much more stressful!!!

9. If you weren't a teacher, what would you be doing?  Something with computers/media specialist
