Listening: Love watching The Devil Wears Prada! Such a good reminder that life
isn't always about the job and you should always remain true to yourself. That is all :)
Loving: This past week reminded me that I absolutely love working with the people I do and who I work for. They say that if you love what you do, then you're not working a day in your life. That's exactly how I felt this past week. & my 4ths (now 5ths) coming to visit me throughout the day filled my heart with joy. This summer was a rough one for me, but those kids knew how to have me smile for the 1st time in a long time <3
Thinking: Now that school started for us...where do I begin!? My school had enough money for B O T H new statewide curriculum this year!! So on top of moving grade levels and classrooms (again), learning about the new evaluation system, schedule changes, and set of standards...oh boy...I also have to learn new math and ELA curriculum. But, I'm happy that everything will all be done in one year!
Wanting: It is muggy and H O T in the 808 state. I'm happy the tradewinds are back because it makes it a little more bareable. But, it does suck when hot air blows at you. I hope this humidity goes down a little...then maybe the beach will have better weather. It's just wayyy too hot to lay out on the sand.
Needing: My classroom was ready for the first day of school...well the kids' areas were HA! I still need to put the information on the bulletin boards, organize certain areas in the classroom, and get an extra bookshelf. GAH. So much to do still!
1st Day You and Kids: Yes...Teacher Work Day began on July 28th. We had 4 days (2 Admin and 2 Teacher Work Days.) Oddly, we started school on a Friday. Although it felt kind of funny, it was nice to get most organizational and get to know you activities out of the way on an oddball day. Gotta find the positive right? :)
