Monday Made It and Let's Get Acquainted

I've made a few things to link up with Tara for Monday Made It
 
Check out these adorable flip flops I made for $2 for my daughter! You can buy flip flops for a $1 at Old Navy (special sale) or Dollar Tree and a bag of water balloons and you have a super cute pair of flip flops! Just tie each balloon in a knot all the way around the shoe!

I made these photo bouquets for Teacher Appreciation Week for my childrens' teachers. Aren't they precious?


And my last goodie I made was for a sweet friend for her bridal shower. She loved it and has it displayed on her front entrance table. She's also going to use it at her wedding as a decoration for the guest sign in table!
 
 
 
 
I'm also linking up with LaToya for her Let's Get Acquainted Linky-it's a great way to get to know all our bloggy friends a little better!
Here are this week's questions:
 
1. What made you decide to become a teacher?
I've always known I wanted to be a teacher. I was very fortunate and had great experiences in school, so I think that played a big role in my decision. Plus, like most teachers, I played school with my siblings and neighbors and I ALWAYS had to be the teacher! :O)
2. What has been your most rewarding experience as a teacher?
This is a tough question, there's so many rewards when you love your job! I think one of the most important aspects in my teaching career has been the relationships I've built with my students and their families.  I work very hard at building relationships with my classes. I think this is why they're so motivated to work for me.
Community=Success
As a matter of fact, I'm having dinner with two of my former students tomorrow evening that I had 12 years ago! (I will be meeting their new babies too!!) Relationships last forever!
 
3. If you were not a teacher, what would you be?
I love facilitating workshops, so I'd love to be a teaching consultant. A lot of teachers only like speaking in front of students, but I enjoy both kids and adults!
 
 
Head on over to both parties to get some great ideas and learn more about each other!

  3. You are so creative! I love the flip flops and wedding gift. Your post made me think about how old my first group of students are...they just entered high school!
