Happy June!

Hey kids! 

Here is my June Currently, thanks to the fantastic Farley!

Currently June

Listening: It’s quiet!  And I’m loving every second of it.  I still have to teach tomorrow.  Ya’ll know what I’m talkin’ about.

Loving: My new blog is just what I wanted!  I’m a sucker for rainbows, and black, and glitter, and pink stripes (á la VS).  Megan at I Teach, What’s Your Superpower? and A Bird in Hand Designs is SO AMAZING.  She’s just wonderful.  I highly recommend her to anyone looking to fancify your blog!  (Also, I’m loving Windows Live Writer!  This is my first time using it to write a blog entry…and I adore it!  So easy!)

Thinking: There are soooooo many things I can’t wait for.  A European vacation…a new car…new teaching curriculum (let’s be real).  Nothing is “in the works” right now, but if I stay positive, all of these things can happen soon!

Wanting: Somehow, my 3 pairs of trusty Converse are all heading to Shoe Heaven.  Time for some new kicks!

Needing: You guys.  I have no idea how this happens.  My HP printer is amazing and beautiful and I love it to death.  But I can’t handle the crazy ink situation I’m faced with every few weeks.  It won’t let me print for very long after one color is out.  So if a color I don’t even need runs out, I can’t even use black to print in grayscale.  Ugh.  I feel like I was just at Staples yesterday.

Summer Bucket List:  I’m not the “Bucket List” type.  Mostly because I have a memory similar to that of Dory the fish.  And also, I’m lazy.  But I chose things that I think/hope/daydream will be attainable over the next few months.  {1.} Over the years, I’ve obtained a LOT of teaching materials and books.  This year, I haven’t had a classroom of my own (I currently share the second grade room with my team teacher, and I’m a “floating” kindergarten reading teacher).  So I have a storage unit to keep all of my junk precious gems.  I can’t part with anything!  Ever since I became a teacher, every year I’ve been faced with the inevitable “What’s going to happen in September?” question, due to budget cuts.  Things are still up in the air for next year!  One day, I’ll be in a school where I can have a room to call my own for at least a few years!  I’ve been scared to part with things, you know, just in case.  And this summer, I plan to organize everything by grade, subject, holiday, etc.  I wonder how long my plan will last…but at least it will give me an excuse to buy some cute boxes to organize stuff in.  {2.} This one is pretty self explanatory, I think?  Also, I’d love to meet some of YOU!  Hopefully a SoCal Meetup will happen again soon that I can actually attend!  That would be super awesome.  {3.} Since it’s summer, I ll finally have more time to create for TPT!!!  Yay!  My fonts and clip art are burning holes in my pockets.  I know that’s not the actual saying, but it totally applies to teachers.

 

Happy Teaching!

  2. I have been in your boat, too when it comes to teaching. I have not had my own room in ten years.. YEP that long! I have taught, reading, grade 4, grade 2, and I am a teacher's assistant this year. I also am waiting for a room of my own. It can be so frustrating! I wish you luck. I have boxes of supplies in my house, I find it hard to part with them, too!
