I recently joined Newbie Blogger Blog Hop  over at Grade Three is the Place for Me! and one of the other new bloggers who linked up nominated me for these two awards:

4. Give 7 random facts about yourself

5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award

Wow! I had a hard time finding people who haven't been nominated so here are the 6 blogs  I am nominating for the Versatile Blogger award and the One Lovely Blog award:

1. A Window into Mrs. Wheeler's Class

2. The First Grade Reader

3. Surviving Sixth Grade.

4. Teacher's Toolkit

And now the First Day Jitters Blog Hop I found over at Fierce in Fourth.

For this blog hop, I have to share three things I am jittery about for the upcoming school year.

1. This year I am going back into the classroom after 2 years of having a supporting role as a Social Studies Coach.

2. I am switching subjects from social studies to English with an emphasis on writing.

3. I will be teaching three different grade levels within the gifted program at my middle school.

All three of these are making my skin crawl. On the good side I am meeting with my new team this Friday for lunch and then we go back to work next Wednesday.
