Be sure to read all the way to the end because YOU may have been tagged to do this on your own blog. Here's how it works: Acknowledge the nominating blogger. Share 11 random facts about yourself. Answer the 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you. List 11 bloggers.

What is your favorite quote? It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. My students repeat that every time they ask me if they have to take their coats to recess.
