"We'd all love to know..."

What are your favorite hobbies or what do you enjoy doing during your free time?
When there is ample time, I love to cook, even if it means throwing things into a slow cooker. But if there is time, I definitely love  

Your favorite vacation destination?
My home country...Taiwan!!

The best advice you've been given?
Don't take things personally. As a teacher who is told a lot of positive and negative things, it is definitely something I have to remind myself of once in a while. 

Most rewarding part of teaching?
Seeing the growth. First grade is definitely the year where you really see it, especially in reading and writing!! 

What are you known for?
At school, I am known to some colleagues as the "Snack Queen". I guess I have a lot of snacks or eat a lot of snacks? Not quite sure how that happened...

2 random facts:
I'm not a big chocolate fan. A couple bites of it and then I'm done. I got tons of chocolate from my students last year during the holidays which usually ended up back home with the parents. So this year I told my kids I like skittles. And now I have TONS of skittles. @@

I am the oldest of three. My youngest brother and I are 12 years apart. 

Happy reading! Tomorrow is Valentine's Day which means...another day of centers! I will end this post with a picture of the valentine we created with our 5th grade buddies today! (so cute!)
