It's Friday!

I am so happy that Friday has finally arrived I don't know what to do with myself!  It's been a good but very long week.  I can't wait to catch up on some much needed sleep.

Help a teacher!

Download word art here

Ok, guys, school has started and teachers everywhere are begging for supplies and spending more of their own money on their classes then they can afford.  You can help and it's simple, painless and fun!

Reddit Gifts for Teachers matches donors with teachers.  Teachers register with the site and say what supplies they need for their students and donors register to send a gift to one of the teachers.  Everyone posts pictures on the site, you feel better for helping, a teacher feels appreciated and the students get some much needed supplies.

There are photos posted on the site showing teachers and students with the gifts they received last year.  Check them out and look at the smiling faces!

The last time I checked there were over 1,700 people who had signed up to donate which is AMAZING!  Sadly, there were over 4,300 teachers who asked to receive supplies.  That adds up to a lot of disappointed kids!

Please, if you can, make a difference...sign up as a donor.

Today was much better!

We had air conditioning today! All day!

And....my friend Natalie was able to get my smartboard on working properly so tomorrow's reading and math lessons will go much smoother!

I can't wait to see what surprises tomorrow brings!

Guess who...

Guess who spent the morning greeting students and parents in a class with no air conditioning

Guess who has a smartboard that doesn't work

Guess who took a cold shower and a long nap when they got home

Guess who is already so tired they can barely keep their eyes open

The camera battery is charging, my "first day" outfit is laid out and I'm heading to bed hoping for a good night's sleep before meeting my new group of kindergarten ears.

It's the weekend!

Download word art here

As I was walking out of school today with my arms full of things to do over the weekend for Monday morning I ran into my principal.  I told him that I would be doing the rest of my work at home in front of the TV with a glass of wine.  I then told him I would see him Monday morning and while indicating the bag full of work in my hands said, "I have no idea what my things are going to look  like."

He laughed.  I was serious!

However, I am happy to report that after more than two glasses of wine, my work is still sitting untouched on the table.  Lol!

Happy Friday!

Download word art here

After working for four whole days I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that it's Friday.

When I leave school tomorrow I'm meeting up with my friends, who are already claiming that I've ignored them since going back to work, for an early happy hour and dinner.  Then, I'll probably spend the rest of the weekend in pajamas.

Doesn't that sound wonderful?

How can I be this tired already?

Ok, I've only been back at school for two days so how can I be this tired already? I'm really going to be a mess when the kids show up on Monday.  Lol!

Back to school...

Ok, two days in my class and the room looks like it's almost finished.  Just don't open any cabinet doors. Lol!

Right now it looks like I have 19 kids in my class, but I hope that changes since the limit is 18 .

I have to go to bed now cause getting up when the alarm clock goes off and then working all day has worn me out.

The last Saturday...

Today was the last Saturday before another school year starts and other than having lunch with friends and running some errands I spent most of the day sneezing.  Summer colds are the worst!

I wasn't offered up as a sacrifice!

Download word art here

There were no teacher sacrifices to the testing Gods this morning.  But, there was a wonderfully inspiring back to school speech given by our Superintendent, Alberto Carvalho.

Totally worth getting for.  Lol!

Afterwards, I was even thinking about about going to school for a couple of hours, but decided to meet some friends for lunch instead.  Lol!  The speech was inspiring, but it's my last Friday off for awhile so I don't think anyone can blame me.

Guess where I'm going

Download word art here

So, I'm on my way to bed now, but when I wake up in the morning I'm going to the Superintendent's back to school event.  Normally, this thing is only for administrators but, this year the principals were asked to invite one teacher from their school.  I'm the teacher my principal invited.

Am I impressed and honored?  No, not really!

First of all, the only reason my principal invited me is because I live closer to The Filmore Theater than anyone else at my school.  Yes, he actually told me that. Lol!

Secondly, I'm very suspicious of the fact they decided to invite only one teacher from each school.  I'm afraid they may try to offer us up as sacrifices to the testing gods or something.

I'll tell you guys all about it....if I survive.

After spending a looooong long weekend with no TV the cable guy finally showed up this morning and fixed everything.  I spent the rest of the day watching mindless TV shows and it was wonderful. Lol

I didn't have as much shopping time today so I only managed to save $93.05.

Now, I either did really well or really bad.  It just depends on how you look at it. Lol!
