I would definitely rather live in the warmer climates! Tennis, hiking, and gardening are all pluses for me.

I think (after goggling pictures) I wear a high-and-tight landing strip cut. In the old-days, it was just called a flattop.

July

What is the easiest way for you to learn something new?  By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom?

I am a visual and tactile learner! I need to do something at least three times, three days in a row, before I actually can do it somewhat proficiently. I try to do that with my classes I teach as well!

  • Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?
  • Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…. 
  • If you could be given any gift what would it be?
  • What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?


Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

I am presently learning the art of drinking water. Since I am on the ancient-side of life, I have a hard time with thinking about purchasing water to drink. We had FREE water growing up! We used the water for Kool-Aid (Cherry and Grape) and Lemonade (I preferred the pink Wyler’s.). Choosing the BUY water has been a rather difficult paradigm shift.

Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…. 

…. Flown in a hot-air balloon.

…. Visited a different country.

…. Eaten shrimp, crabs, or lobster.

If you could be given any gift what would it be?

Forty-eight-hour days instead of the twenty-four.

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?

When I can’t sleep at night, I either listen to a baseball game on the radio or read a mystery novel.

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?

I HATE PENCILS!

Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?

No one would ever want to see me dance!

If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?

Standardized testing in schools. Should students have to wait to test-out-of grade level classes, or should each student be able to test-and-advance at their own individualized pace?

What are you a “natural” at doing?

Organizing to procrastinate
