50 Followers Giveaway & Newbie Blog Hop!

So, I've been MIA for a few days to spend time cleaning/setting up my new classroom! It's coming along... slowly... but surely. :)

Today I've been hard at work sorting out pictures from my cousin's wedding that the hubby and I photographed a couple weekends ago. They are BEAUTIFUL! The hubby is so talented...:)

While I've been hard at work with my classroom and photography...I've reached my first milestone as a blogger! 50 Followers!! :) So, I've decided to have a little giveaway to celebrate...

With the beginning of a new school year just around the corner, I thought I would give away something that everyone could use at the moment...a $10 Amazon or Target Gift Card! (I know how much y'all are prepping/shopping lately...I've been doing the same! ;)) Enter to win below! 

Though I haven't been around much lately, I have seen a little blog hop going on...and I thought I would join in! Janis at Grade Three is the Place for Me thought of this great idea and asks everyone to answer 5 here goes...
Grade Three is the Place for Me!

    1.  what state you are in
    2.  your current teaching position
    3.  your teaching experience
    4.  when you started blogging
    5.  share a blogging tip / blogging resource

  1. I live and teach in Tennessee (though I am originally from Ohio).
  2. I am currently teaching 6th grade at the West Tennessee School for the Deaf! :)
  3. I am about to embark on my 5th year of teaching...and I love it more and more each year!
  4. I started blogging at the beginning of this summer...June, I believe... I'm lovin' it! So many FABULOUS teachers out there in the blogging world!
  5. Blogging tip: Turn off the word verifier in the comment section of your blog. More people will comment if they do not have to go through that extra step! 
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend...Don't forget to link up on this blog hop and enter my 50 Followers Giveaway!
