Less than a Week!

4 more days, 4 more days 4 more days, 4 more days!!!!!! And, only one more day with students! That's all I have time to say right now, but I really can't wait until next week!

Crazy Days of May

These last few weeks are tough on teachers. I've been at school late into the evening almost every day this week. This evening, we had our Senior send off BBQ, but it's been raining in buckets, so I ended up cooking about 50 hamburgers and hotdogs in a frying pan on the stove in the home ec room, 4 at a time! Last night, we did the National Honor Society induction and Wednesday we had practice for that. Then, I'm trying to grade papers and plan final projects and pack up my classroom so it's been crazy. I also had to take some time off Wednesday for the next round of doctor's appointments. I'm exhausted and very glad it's Friday.

I have to spend this weekend grading research papers, but the good news is that I only have 7 days left with students and two weeks before I'm officially on summer vacation!

A New Job!

It's official. I will have a new job next year as a 3/4th grade teacher. It's at the same school I currently teach in, so I'm just moving from upstairs to downstairs, but it's still a big change! The rest of the teachers are split pretty evenly between thinking I'm crazy for making this change and congratulating me on my luck. I'm going to have to spend some time over the summer creating curriculum and getting ready!
