Currently September. . . When did that happen?!?

Holy guacamole!  I made it through my first week of teaching {ever} woohoo!  Now it's September and time to link up with Farley for CURRENTLY September :)


Listening - I have a not so little crush on Mr. Hunter Hayes.  I mean, we are the same age and I was just thinking. . . he's the kind of country star that needs an adorable first year teacher [like myself ] to be to completely smitten with, don'tcha think?

 Loving - My 3rd graders are the absolute SWEETEST!  They just live to please their teacher :)  These kiddos take out the trash just because it's full and are always willing to help in any. way. possible.  I hope they never grow out of such giving spirits!!

Thinking - I put off all my school work, except lesson plans, until today.  I was a frazzle lady!  I spent 5 hours in my classroom then came home to do more work!  Good thing I completely love my job!!

Wanting - I miss Carroll College!  I mean, I couldn't imagine actually being a college student again because four years was plenty for me! I miss all my friends and that sweet Carroll family I left behind.  I am ecstatic to visit during homecoming in a few weeks. . . Go Saints!

Needing - I need a few more hours in between 6 and 10 pm.  But until that happens I will just try and get all my work done in the time provided :)

Loving - The last of my good friends is moving away from our tiny little town *tear*  but I am going to take this opportunity to make some new friends!  It's really not too bad because I like making new friends!

After moving back to podunk U.S.A. I have jumped head first into youth ministry and music ministry in my parish.  I am so excited to be working with such a phenomenal group of individuals!  What a great place to make more friends!

Well there you have it! Now that I am getting into the swing of school, I am going to try harder to post more regularly. . . but we will see how that goes :)

Congratulations on finishing your first week of teaching ever! :-)

I also need a few more hours between 6 and 10pm. Who can we talk to about getting that in the works? Wouldn't that be great? I could also use a few between 12am and 6am for sleeping! :-)

Have a great second week teaching!

Congrats on not only finishing your first week...but it being a great week! I always worry that new teachers (especially at my school) will have an awful first week and never want to come back.

If you find out how to get more time in the afternoons, please share. I know plenty of people who would pay for those kinds of secrets. :-)

And I understand about making friends. I bought a house and moved about 30 minutes away from where I used to live. I still teach in my old town (I actually love the drive in the morning/afternoon). But it makes it more difficult to see friends. Can't just up and go out somewhere cause it actually takes a minute. Here's hoping we both start making friends.

I was just telling some work peeps that:

a) you couldn't pay me to go back and relive middle school
b) I might go back and relive high school... if someone wanted to pay me to do it
c) I would pay to go back and relive my college years!

:) HA!!I hope you enjoy your 3rd graders all year. They are pretty wonderful!!
