My plans for next year...

I absolutely cannot believe how FAST my first year of teaching is going! Today was the last day of the third nine weeks, which means there are only 9 final weeks until I have a whole year of teaching experience under my belt! It definitely hasn't been easy, but I definitely have learned SO much, and can't wait to make some changes next year. Speaking of next year...I turned in my contract the other day so I will be teaching 3rd grade again at O. P. Earle! I have heard the students coming up from 2nd grade are good group, so I am excited to start a new year with them. But, whenever I think about my students leaving in 9 weeks, I get so sad! lol It's so funny because some days they drive me crazy, but at the end of the day, I realize that I still love each and every one of them. Well, here's to a successful 9 more weeks (we have a LOT to get finished before PACT ahhhh!)

I LOVE this warm weather

I was SO glad it was so warm today! I actually got home in time to walk Zoe, our dog, around the neighborhood. I absolutely LOVE to walk Zoe! It's amazing how strong she is....she prances around with her tongue out while she's pulling me along! lol Here is a picture of what she looks like. I never thought I would get so attached to a dog so quickly, but it certainly has happened! Well, thank goodness tomorrow is Friday! I'm so ready for the weekend! (one of my last free ones before the real craziness begins!)

My first "blog"!

Ok, so I have been reading different people's blogs the past few months and have kept telling myself, "Man! I need to make one!", I am!!! I figured this would be a WONDERFUL time to start "blogging" considering all of the busy and exciting events I have coming up this year. Hopefully, I will keep it updated and interesting for all my friends and family to enjoy! Any advice for doing this would be greatly appreciated!!!
