Get ready! It's our First Fabulous Blogger Friday!

Happy Friday Friends!,
Are you ready?!? It's our first edition of Fabulous Blogger Friday! I'm so excited about the response that I received back for this. I hope you enjoy getting to know these featured bloggers & maybe find some new friends along the way!
Today I am featuring...Lori Rosenberg from Teaching With Love and Laughter!

Lori received State Teacher of the Year!!
Grade or subject you teach:
I teach kindergarten, first grade, and second grade writing, science, and social studies.
What inspired you to become a teacher?
I am sure that I became a teacher for many of the same reasons as all of you.  I entered the teaching profession because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of my students and their families, just as my favorite teachers had done for me.  Teaching is more than just a job to me.  It's a calling.  It's an ever-surprising mix of grueling hard work and ecstatic successes, both big and small.  I knew that teaching would be a challenging vocation, but I also knew that my personality was properly suited for this profession.  When the job gets tough, sometimes it's only your sense of humor that can keep you moving forward with any sanity!  Each day I go in front of my students, I never know what I will say or do that will leave a lasting impression on them.  Each day, I bring the full force of my personality and expertise to the classroom, in the hopes of inspiring my students and molding their young, impressionable minds.  
Describe your teaching "personality":
I teach with love and laughter every single day. I am very casual, calm and laid back. I never raise my voice or get angry. My teaching personality is exactly the same as my "real life" personality. If I can't spend my days laughing and loving, then I may as well just stay in bed!
What is your favorite subject to teach?
Definitely writing. It's very challenging to teach it correctly, but so rewarding. Most young children don't think that they can write and I love showing them that they have been writing for years.
What made you decide to begin blogging? 
I stalked tons and tons of blogs for about a year before I realized that I was missing out on all the fun. The blogging community is such a wonderful place to spend my time. I've "met" so many talented teachers from all over the world and I can honestly say that they have made me a better teacher.
If you could give one piece of advice to your fellow teachers & bloggers, what would it be?
Keep on sharing all of your wonderful ideas because there are thousands of teachers whose students are benefiting from all the top-notch, quality activities you are blogging about.
Finish this sentence... You know you're a teacher when: 
you can quickly and easily identify every font in ads, on billboards, in commercials, and, just about everywhere else!

  2. This is a great idea! It was fun to learn a bit more about a blogger and read about it somewhere other than their own blog. I like the interview style. Why does that make it more exciting? I have no idea, but I love it! Great idea! Looking forward to more down the road. I'd be happy to participate if you would be interested in featuring me and my little blog. :)
