Happy Summer!

June 1, 2012 No Comments

It’s over!  I really can not believe it.  My first year of teaching is over.  It was a very trying year, but I made it.  And more importantly, they made it.  I am so proud of my kiddos.  When I think about the kids that they were when I started the year (a month late, of course), I am amazed at how much they’ve grown up!

Our last day of school was a blast.  The kiddos planned their summer vacations and shared with the class.  We enjoyed lunch in the classroom with a movie.  We had an award ceremony where I passed out their Candy awards (so cute!) and gift bags.  Then we celebrated with a dance party…. they had a blast!  And I won’t lie, I did too.  I love breaking it down!

I got a little sappy at the end of the day, in our dismissal line I hugged them all one by one and told them I loved them.  I said I love you again as they headed out the front doors… and I meant it.  I really do love them.  The little guy that I will worry deeply about over the summer gave me the biggest hug I’ve had all year and his email address so that I could email him.  It brought me to tears.  These kids and I have been through a lot… and I am pretty sure that this is one year no one will ever forget!

Packing up my classroom was a little sad today.  It looks so empty and silent – where just yesterday it was bursting with life.  But, that’s the life of a teacher… one class gone so that another can come!  We wouldn’t be doing our jobs if we could keep them forever.

Good luck, class of 2021!  It’s time to prepare for the class of 2022.  But first, SUMMER!

  • Not going to lie, I had a self-hatred moment this morning. I haven’t been to the gym in ages and I keep putting it off because, what’s another day, right?  So, so wrong.

I hated how I looked in the mirror this morning. I hated how there were rolls where there shouldn’t be and dimples in places there should be no dimples. I literally wanted to throw up. Is that normal? Probably not. It’s not healthy, for sure, but it’s something most women go through.

Why?

But then, friends, I put on my face and opened the windows and felt that wet hair-fresh mind-sunshine kind of feeling and I felt better. Not 100%, but better.

I’m going to the gym today. Or at least walking the dog around the neighborhood. I’ll keep you posted.

  • Project based learning in progress. These kiddos came up with their own business plan to serve the community. They created missions, visions, slogans, and logos. Now they’re building their businesses. I can’t wait to see them finished!

  • It's been a busy (and really weird) couple of weeks. Things have been messy, jumbled, cancelled, redone, and just over all insane. It's always nice to start a new week: clean, fresh, and organized.

I've been trying new weekly layouts each week of March this far... I'll let you know which one I liked best at the end.  This week's is more open, but still horizontal. Maybe a vertical layout next week? Stay tuned... #bujodaily #bujolayout #bujoideas #bujoinspiration #bujo #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournals #marchbulletjournal #march #cactus #cacti #succulents #freshweek #saturday #sunday
  • I attended #ECET2Bardstown this weekend and was in awe of how BEAUTIFUL Thomas Nelson High School is. The inspiration and empowerment run rapid at this place and you can feel it in every corner. #SchoolGoals #goodmojo

  • Finally.... My March bullet journal! It was hard to choose a theme, but I grabbed some inspiration from @amandarachlee's 2018 (2017?) March spread. I love it so far! Swipe to see my first weekly spread  and flip through of my monthly calendar, habit tracker, and mood tracker. Do you approve of my cacti/succulent theme, @jmeier205?

What's your March spread look like? I'd love to see them!

  • One of my colleagues shared this with me today. He meant it about my students, but he doesn't realize how much it resonated with me personally.

It's no secret I've been broken lately. It's felt like destruction, but I'm slowly breaking the surface and recognizing the growth and potential that like ahead.
