The Giving Tree

Greetings Friends,

It's not a well kept secret that I love nature. Hiking is one of my favorite hobbies and I actually only got super into it a year or two ago. Since then, I have done tons of trails and am hooked. Every long break I have, I usually try to squeeze in a handful of new hikes. Oh, that's my other thing, I won't say never, but I seldom hike the same trail twice. Life is short and there is so much to see. As a self-proclaimed explorer, I want to see as much of it as I can.

Fashionate About Teaching

Hi Friends,

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. Again, time seems to have passed me by and I've been rather lazy with my posts. Classroom updates soon, I promise! Now that I'm on my winter break though, I thought I'd do a for-fun post today and blog about my teacher wardrobe. Fellas, read no further. Just kidding! :)

If I could describe my fashion sense in one word it would be: simple. I'm not one to (over) accessorize, I often avoid loud colors like the plague, and I don't deviate too far from what I know I like. In other words, I'm not much of a risk-taker when it comes to my outfits. That being said, I do love to express myself through my clothes especially for my kids.

Free Dress Day

So last week the intercom went *bing* and my principal announced that we were going to have a school-wide free dress day on Friday (I teach at a school that requires uniforms). After the announcement one of my girls says, "Woo hoo! I'm going to get a free dress tomorrow!" to which one of my boys responds, "That's not fair. It's only for girls?". Got to love working with those charming and innocent-minded inner-city 5 year olds! :)

I New It

Hi friends! It's nearly a third of the way through the school year and I received yet another new student last Friday. I guess there's one more reason to reset my expectations for the whole class! I have parent conferences all week long and am frantically trying to get my report cards in so I won't be posting a lengthy post tonight, but I have tons of art and student samples I can't wait to share from the last month or so. Stay tuned!

The Snowball Effect

Well friends, it happened. I missed one post and over 3 weeks later I haven't posted an update since. Yowza!
