Greetings! Can you believe August is here already?
I am especially excited this year because I have taken a new job at a brand new school! I will be a K-2 Gifted Resource Teacher. I am really pumped because the school, the staff, and the administration is fabulous! I feel incredibly lucky to have this opportunity and I can't wait to get started!
I am linking up with Farley's Currently Linky to discuss what's happening!
Loving My new job! I think this is the perfect fit for me! I am so excited to get started and meet all new people! I love that my job will be to keep my students thinking critically and creatively all day long!
Thinking Lately, I have been having fun creating classroom decor sets
for many teachers. (And yes, I do take requests!) But now seeing as it
is August 2nd, I need to start designing my own! I am doing a Creative
Thinkers theme for my classroom. It will feature famous great thinkers
and lots of lightbulbs and bright colors. So far, I have sketched some
lightbulbs that will be featured in it. I will blog about it when I'm
Wanting Our school is still finishing being built so I literally cannot go into my classroom. The building is scheduled to be finished next Friday. I can't wait!
Needing to go to the grocery. Okay, I'm going to, I promise, right after blogging, pinteresting, writing, drawing, making crafts for my classroom. I'm on my way.
B2S Must Haves
Coffee- A definite must-have, plus it's a great way to reach out and meet a new friend. "I'm going on a coffee run, do you need one?"
A Fresh Planner- I can be a little scattered, so it's imperative for me to keep an up to date calendar. I already put the report card dates, professional development, and days off in mine!
Knowledge that it'll all work out- My thought is "I've done it before, I can do it again." Every year I feel a panic a few days before the first day because I think I really may not get it together, but every year it comes together (and usually aesthetically pleasing). So I have to tell myself: Don't worry, you got this!
Don't forget to reach out to the newbies at your school, and on that note:
How do you take your coffee, teacher-friend?
I take mine black, hardcore style.
