First Week Whirlwind

What a great first week of school! I've sooooo enjoyed getting to know my new kiddos and starting a brand new year. My brain is in such a whirlwind right now that I don't even know if I could string together more than two or three coherent sentences, but here's a breakdown: (Remember the song in Home Alone when everyone's rushing around? Yeah, that's my theme song this week).
smiling faces
eager learners
first day pictures
new math program
hallway procedures
AR testing
order faculty shirt---Where's my checkbook?!
out for recess
computer lab
lost my phone (found in purse)
name art
stolen items--yes, already :(
kiddos love the ActivExpressions
board marker missing
forgot to eat snack
finally finished PD plan
making copies
writing receipts
calendar math
desk piled high
"Have a great weekend!"
leaning on coworkers
Thursday night HS football...
totally skipped science today
lesson plans done!

Can you relate? Sometimes it can be pretty crazy, but I couldn't imagine doing anything else. Teaching is my passion and my calling. 


  1. I think I'm exhausted just reading all you've accomplished this week!

  2. Your post made me laugh...I can definitely relate. We start with kids on Wednesday! Happy new school year!!!

  3. It sure is a whirlwind but SO worth it every time! :)

    Always A Lesson
