CURRENTLY it's 2016!!!!!

Thank you Erin for sponsoring CURRENTLY this month!

                                                             Happy 2016 everyone!!!!


  • LISTENING to: “I’m so Excited!  By the Pointer Sisters”.  I’m very excited to be going back to work tomorrow.  Tomorrow is our district’s first day back at work after our 2-week holiday break.  What can I say?  I LOVE my job.  I’m nerdy like that!  
  • LOVING:   Our new Principal gave us the whole day tomorrow to work in our rooms!!!! Yippee!  I really like having a day back at work to do what I need to do before the kids come back! 
  • THINKING: that the Spring semester will fly as quickly as the Fall semester did!
  • WANTING: An Apple TV connection so that I can mirror student Ipad screens to my projector screen!
  • NEEDING: to clear the clutter that has accumulated through the school year!  Is it too early to start spring cleaning?
  • ONE LITTLE WORD: Intentional – My goal is to be intentional in my teaching and in the way I spend my time!  


  1. Hi Betsy, im from Australia and am linking up from Oh boy Fourth grades linky party. Sounds like you have a fantastic principle, I wish we were given such a luxury, but we always have too many PDs to do. Well I guess your back at work as I type this, hope it was amazing! Cheers Francine

  2. What a gift to go back and work in your classroom for a day. I know many teachers who gave up their Sunday to be ready for today.

  3. It's never to early to start Spring Cleaning! Happy New Year!

  4. Our principal gives us a real Teacher Work Day, as well. So grateful! It's never too early to spring clean. Happy new Year!

  5. Thanks for the comments! I had an awesome first day back. It was so busy - Never would've gotten everything done if the kids were there. LOL! At the end of the day I was "teacher after first day back to school" tired! I hope y'all have a Happy New Year!!!!
