Tag! You're It!

I've been tagged by Miss T over at Journey of a Substitute Teacher!

Here Are The Rules:
* Post these rules
* 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 questions that Miss T asked were:
1. If you could teach any grade, what would it be?
Kindergarten!  I was so lucky to land a job in my dream grade and I love every minute of it!
2. What is the one thing you couldn't live without in your classroom?
Do I have to pick just one?  Magnetic tape, velcro, clothespins, cardstock, and of course, lamination!
3. What's one thing you need in your classroom?
Something I need that I don't have?  More storage space!
4. What's your favorite school lunch?
I eat frequently throughout the day, so my lunch is usually just yogurt and an apple.
5. Do you have a favorite tv show?
Tons of them!  How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones... it's really an assortment!
6. Do you have writers's block as a blogger sometimes?
Not yet!  I've only been blogging for a month so I still have plenty of things I want to write about! 
7. What talent you would like to be able to do?
Ha!  See my answer to number 10 for this one!  I would love to be able to stop time to get more done in a day!
8. Who's your favorite musician/group right now?
Adele & Sara Bareilles
9. Best teaching moment ever?
Every minute of every day. The moment that you see the light bulb go off and a child realizes that they understand something.  The moment that you engage an otherwise unmotivated student.  The moment when you know that you made a difference!
10. Any funny sayings or happenings that happened in your class this week yet?
One of my kids said to me: "Are you good at everything?"  I just laughed and responded jokingly "Yes, I am!" He went on to this whole tangent that I must be a superhero with the power to do everything.  Except put more time in a day (#7!)
