School's Out But I'm Not Relaxing...Yet!
Do you ever have those days & weeks that float by where you wonder "Where in the world did that time go?" That, my friends, wraps up the entire month of May for me. I was BUSY. I mentioned in my last post that my district is restructuring, thus sending me t...

Whale Hello There!
Well, would you look at that? My little corner of the internet got a face lift & I'm starting to blog again! Recently I've had several people ask me about my blog & I've had to tell them that while it's still active, it's been nearly TWO YEARS since I've po...

Brrrr! June Currently Comin' Atcha!
Holy Moly, Ohio is COLD! I know, I know, after coming through one of the harshest winters in a long time, none of us are really entitled to be complaining about 40-50 degree weather, but seriously, as I'm typing this my little bare feet are freezing and I'v...

We get Thursday, Friday, & Monday off. Monday is the first day of "deer season" which is a a really big deal in this rural part of Ohio. I will be staying out of those hunters way & cozying up for one more day of break! 

So excited for you & your student! What an awesome thing to share with all of us! Don't you just LIVE FOR moments like that? My most difficult student is also one of my brightest. If you can catch him in the right situation, on the right day, he comes up with some amazing thoughts! 

You will LOVE your planner! I'm on my 2nd Life Planner (I LOVE that you got the GOLD edition! I think that will be next for me!) and I also use the teacher lesson planner. I'm an Erin Condren fan for life!

Happy Sunday!
