I am not...

After teaching kids vocabulary for many years, one of the best strategies is to have them come up with non-examples, things that the word is not. This helps them to refine their knowledge of what the word actually is. In the spirit of defining myself, I present the top 5 things I am NOT:

5. a fan of the color orange

4. someone who revels in and enjoys domesticity

3. a people-pleaser

2. a morning person (honestly this should really be #2 AND #1)

1. impressed by people who are impressed with themselves

What are the top 5 non-examples of you?
