Why is the first week after any break so lonnnngggggggggg. I don’t know why I thought this week would be different, but of course I got to Tuesday and thought it just HAD to be Thursday! On top of the return from break, I was moved into a “new” classroom with 1/6 of my computers working, LOTS of boxes, and a HUGE classroom visit by teachers around the county. Oh, and the visit occurred during the last class of the day right after the technology crashed in my classroom. Yes, it was one of “those” weeks! Any who, I am honestly attempting to get my blogger mojo back and I thought that this would be a great return…especially since I love a good linky party 🙂
This is my new home…I’m soooo excited!!!! Our school is undergoing a complete renovation and I’ve actually been begggiiiinggg for my new home to be my permanent home! It’s sooo cozy and I have a classroom where I can see each and EVERY computer screen and I have so much sunlight. It’s so nice to be near other teachers on the hall and a working copier nearby! Oh yeah…this sign needs some fancy! Any ideas?
Another IG gem I dropped this week….soooooo nice to have some room 🙂 I actually was hoping I’d lose this HUGE desk in my “move”, but when I was able to spread both of my Erin Condren Planners out…all was well! I will have to show you my former desk, which is a computer cart…on wheels!!! I needed space folks, so this was a sight for sore eyes and cramped planners! If you haven’t read my review of the Erin Condren Teacher Planner….read it NOW!
I showed you the “good” of my move…this is the BAD! Boxes!!!! They are PACKED with goodies and I don’t want to unpack. On top of the boxes, there are computers waiting to be unpacked. However, I don’t want to unpack (obviously) but I’m not even sure I’m staying in this temporary “home”! Unpacking today would mean that I’d possibly have to unpack and repack in just a few weeks, which is no bueno!!!!!! I’m not a fan of packing, but unpacking…I’d seriously rather pay someone to do!
This picture seriously was a moment I’ve been praying for! I am in a school that had 1:8 my first year, no lie. This year we have been blessed with wi-fi and students are now allowed to use their devices in class through the BYOT Policy in place. I know that some schools are banning cell phones and tablets, but in a school like mine, THIS is what we need! Between the 5 iPad’s that now live in my classroom and desktops, I was so happy to be nearly 1:1 in my largest class and see students collaborate in class.
This is what education is about!!!
On top of the fun week back after Fall Break, Tuesday was picture day and I almost forgot!!! I wanted to wash my hair, get my eyebrows done, and make myself presentable…but it didn’t happen. Instead, I dug in my closet and pulled out the last outfit I actually felt cute in and made it work. As much as I tried, I was still digging in my bag for lipgloss as I waltzed in to take my picture.
That’s my week in 5 pictures…what a recap!!!! It’s so exciting to be able to recap and see what I’ve accomplished this week!!!! Thanks for reading and don’t forget to get our October Organizer for Appreciation. Appreciate-October-Growth-Area.pdf (1722 downloads)
