It's Fabulous Blogger Friday Featuring Greg from Smedley's Smorgasboard of Kindergarten!!

Haaappy Friday Friends!!,

It's that time of the week again... Fabulous Blogger Friday!! Today I am featuring a great guy who is an inspiration to many!! I am featuring Greg...


 Your Name/Name of Blog:  
Smedley's Smorgasboard of Kindergarten

Grade or Subject You Teach?
What inspired you to become a teacher?
I have always wanted to change the world and I know the best way to do that is one child and one classroom at a time.  And I always knew I would be a teacher.  There really was never any other option.

Describe your teaching "personality":
 I am a hands-on, let's get messy, wild and crazy teacher.  My classroom probably looks like a zoo to visitors, but it really is a well oiled machine.  A well oiled machine that malfunctions daily!  I believe my job is to guide my students to learning and discovering, not to give them answers.  I am their guide by the side building their scaffolding and then removing it when it is no longer needed.  

What is your favorite subject to teach?

What made you decide to begin blogging?  
I have been blog stalking for a few years and have always wanted to start a blog but I was so worried about rejection and ridicule.  It can be scary being a man in such a woman's world.  My coworkers are constantly telling me how great my ideas are and how I should do professional development classes so with  a lot of encouragement from the fiancee' I decided to take the leap!

If you could give one piece of advice to your fellow teachers & bloggers, what would it be?  
HAVE FUN!!!!  And ignore the politics and things that are out of our control!!  Enjoy your students and give them your all!

Finish this sentence: You know you're a teacher when
 you get excited about sparkly scissors!  (BIG LOTS!).

Any personal links you would like to share with readers (TPT, TN, Pinterest, Etsy)?
