This linky was created by 5th Grade Rocks, 5th Grade Rules. She's created a fun survey for teacher bloggers...so here we go.
1. Are you married, do you have a bf, or are you flying free as a single lady/man?
Married to an amazing guy who truly has the WORST names for English, Oscar Ariel, so basically he's the grouch or he's the mermaid. In Spanish these names just aren't so bad, but he refuses to take on a nickname so he will continue to be the grouchy mermaid.
2. Where did you grow up?
I was born in Colrado, lived in California but mostly grew up in the Chicago suburbs...where you can still find me.
Oh yes, Max and Ellie - two cats who appear frequently on my blog.
4. What is a favorite tv show you are embarrassed to admit to watching?
Jersey Shore...so many bad decisions in such a short period of time, there's something hypnotizing about it
5. Are you a saver or a spender?
I'm a saver...spending makes me anxious! Just ask the grouchy mermaid!
6. What is your favorite children's book?
A Wrinkle in Time, I can still read this over and over!
7. Were you the class clown, teacher's pet, or neither?
Generally the teacher's pet, but only if the teacher was worth it. If the teacher was lame, I didn't pay much attention...should I admit that now?
8. Who is your favorite athletic team?
La seleccion argentina - the Argentine national soccer team. They're the best!
9. Where did you go on your last REALLY fun vacation?
Buenos Aires, Argentina. We were there for Christmas break this year to visit you know who's family, it was nice since it's summer down there at that time of year!
10. Who is your favorite actor? Actress?
I really like Liam Neeson. He just seems like he would be a very nice, but slightly intimidating person in real life.
11. Tell about the last time you cried because you were happy.
I came close when our Square Cat buttons arrived and one of my little guys wanted so badly to write his thank you note...it was so amazing to see him so excited about reading!
12. What is your favorite season?
Fall it's beautiful outside, and perfect weather for enjoying a good book!
13. What is your biggest regret?
I think it would just be not staying in shape. I played soccer for years and now can barely run 2 minutes without cramping up. (Now I'm feeling frustrated with myself!)
BUT I LIKED THE ORIGINAL, so I kept that here, so I can do this and not regret it!
That I didn't start taking care of my body years ago! Oh, and that I didn't start a 403B when I first started teaching. ***Take note all of you spring chickens!
14. What food do you just NOT like at all?
Sauerkraut - I can't even be in the same room as that stinky stuff!
15. Who was your most memorable teacher, and why?
My most memorable teacher has to be my Spanish teacher from high school, Mrs. Gullickson. She was truly an inspiration. If it weren't for her I'm not sure I would have continued studying Spanish, studied abroad and met my husband. She helped inspire me in general and truly changed the course my life took!
We're suppose to think of another question - but my brain is not up for that, I'm on spring break, no excess thining is allowed!
There you have it!
Mrs. Castro Pin It
