1, 2, 3, 4

1) In this song, the singer tells his girl he appreciates how she makes him feel. Who is the most supportive person in your life? wow, what a hard question--I would say my Pennsylvania sister because we had a long and laughter-filled phone conversation last night

2) Our singer only has to count to 4, which is a cinch. Do you understand the more sophisticated math sciences, like geometry and algebra? not so much

3) This video features a couple who shared their first kiss behind the high school. Tell us about your first kiss. It was with my next door neighbor, Mike, who is my age, we were 3 and determined to get married

4) Filmed in Chicago, this video features the Art Institute of Chicago, home to works by Monet, Gauguin and Van Gogh. How do you express your creativity? (Draw, paint, write, sing or play music ... ) mostly writing--school is a creative outlet for me, but knitting is a close second

5) Chicago is home to two of the world's tallest buildings -- the Willis aka Sears Tower and The John Hancock Center (which appears briefly in this video). Both have observation decks that offer panoramic views of the city. Are you afraid of heights? I love heights, they thrill me

6) The Plain White T's got their start in Lombard, a suburb of Chicago and home to Yorktown Center -- a huge, two story shopping mall. Do you enjoy going to the mall, or would you rather shop online, or in small, independent stores? I've never been to a multi-storied mall, but I love shopping anywhere. My New Year's resolution was to shop local merchants and for the most part I've done well with it

7) Naturally Yorktown Center has a food court. Would you prefer a pretzel from Auntie Anne's, a cinnamon roll from Cinnabon or a cookie from Mrs. Field's? I've had none of the above but I would have any of them depending on my mood

8) While we're at the mall … Imagine you're at the customer service counter of a big department store. As you wait for help, you see an older lady pocket a Timex watch. Would you turn her in or look the other way? I would turn her in

9) Which puzzle would you have more success with: crossword or sudoku? probably sudoku but I would prefer a crossword

I've never really enjoyed "doing crafts" but I admire those who do. I think that I just don't have enough patience for it.
And--I agree with you--good teachers are VERY creative!

Knitting is on my bucket list of things to learn. I have so many things that my grandmother made, and absolutely love them. I'd like to leave something like that for my grandchildren. :)

One of my friends wants to teach me to knit. I used to knit a very long time ago, when I was a child. Maybe I will pick it up again.

I hate heights! And I can't imagine never having been in a mall.....Malls are actually going out of style in our part of the country and they are going back to free standing stores. Or the strip mall kinds

I bet your students appreciate your approach to teaching -- that it's a creative outlet. (And I knew you'd answer with knitting.)

I'm really surprised by the never shopped in a multi leveled mall. That is all we have around here. My favorite is 3 stories. It has the Disney Store (go figure)!
Auntie Anne's pretzels....our favorite thing to get at the mall. Cinnamon sugar pretzel bites...yum. Elexis likes the Mrs. Fields; neither one of us are too keen on Cinnabon. I guess that goes along with our multi story malls...we at least burn some calories while eating them.
