You are now entering the world of my thoughts.

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

Monday's Muse: Teacher Power and more!

I LOVE THIS!!! :D Not just because I am a teacher and I love it, but some of the most amazing people in my life were/are teachers and believe it or not, I, to this day think they had/have superpowers! Can't really explain it but I NEVER got away with anything! But I guess that is what I love about these amazing teachers. I learned so much from them. They did not just 'teach' me, they motivated me, they encouraged me, they supported me, they shared the love of learning with me. I think was the best thing they could have done for me. I am not all that surprised that after looking at a host of possible careers that teaching was the one career that suited me the most! So tell me, what is YOUR superpower?

I have a host of goodies to come this week!!!!!

On the 30th as part of Tara's Blogaversary Blogfest. I will be posting one of my all time favorite recipes (hopefully pictures included if the item does not get eaten before I can take a picture of it! :D)

From Sept 1-7th I will be participating in the Back to the Books Blog Hop co-hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.  I will be giving away books and prizes away to three lucky winners!!!!! So don't forget to stop by.

How fun! I love the thought that teachers have superpowers! They really do. I am going to school to be a teacher and if it wasn't for all the awesome teachers I had growing up, I probably wouldn't want to do it. Great post! I will be back to see more - sounds like you have lots of fun stuff going on. Come do my KURIOUS KIDS-FEST if you have time! It's going to be great. :)

Oooo, I homeschooled my two daughters K-12, so I guess that's my super power.

Thanks for all the cool-looking links. I'm heading over to Kurious Kids Fest now.

Teachers really are superheroes. Two in particular come to mind for me: Mrs. Young, my 7th grade English teacher, and Mrs. Kieffer, my senior Composition teacher. They seemed to have x-ray vision right into my future and really encouraged me to write. :)

And I'm in your Fantasy 3 group for the campaign. I look forward to getting to know you!
