When and why did you start blogging?
I started in October 2012 because it just seemed like so much fun!
What is your favorite population to work with?
I love preschool language and elementary articulation.
How much time per week do you spend blogging and/or creating materials?
It really depends on the week. I usually create every night sitting in front of the TV. I blog then, too. I blog far less often than I’d like to.
What's your favorite topic to create materials for?
What's the best thing about blogging?
Hearing what everyone has to say! Whether it’s compliments or suggestions.
Do you have any blogging tips?
Proofread! I've found so many of my own errors just by giving myself a 15 minute break and going back to it. Yikes. I’m too impatient to wait those 15 minutes, so I usually end up seeing what I want to see and not noticing typos right away.
What is your funniest speech moment?
I can’t pick just one, but one of my favorites happened just recently. One of my artic students is brilliant and prefers the company of adults to that of peers, but most of all he likes to be alone. His teacher got an email from his mom saying:
“*Student* told me he doesn’t plan on getting married, but if he did, he would want his wife to have Mrs. D’s (his former special education teacher, last year) insides, Mrs. L’s (his current teacher) smile, and Mrs. L’ & Miss Polley’s (me!) outsides. What a lovely Frankenwife!”
So basically he wants his old sped teacher’s personality – not mine nor his current teacher’s; but he wants his future, nonexistent wife to look like me and his current teacher. I’m really not sure whether to be flattered or offended! HAHA
I adore this mother; she loves her son for who he is and she was willing to share this little story with us! <3
Thank you for sharing with me Denise! Happy blogging. :)
