If we are friends on facebook, I'm sure you are tired of hearing about and seeing all the things related to my classroom. I've been a pretty busy girl lately. Someone even asked the other day if I worked all summer. It made me laugh.
I love my job. I've wanted to teach ever since I can remember. It is something I believe God has called me to do. This upcoming year I'm going to be able to teach literacy for the first time and I have to say I have never been so excited about teaching. I get absolutely giddy when I think about getting to read books, discuss them with my students, and instill a love for reading in my 7th graders. As silly as it is, it brings tears to my eyes. I'm THAT excited.
I do enjoy my summers. Andrew is pretty adamant that summers are mine and I should take a break. He doesn't ever want me to get burned out. He understands that I need that time for me and he wants me to take full advantage of it. But at the same time, he understands how much I love my job and that when I'm crafting for my classroom, it is fun for me.
That's what I've been doing. Crafting for my classroom. I've decided pinterest is a drug and I need a major intervention. There are so many amazing things that I have found that I want to make for my classroom. I keep telling people at some point I have to stop and do the important stuff like lesson plans.
And I have done a little bit of those. They are much more enjoyable when you can plan a lesson here and there and not feel like you HAVE to sit down and do it all at once. That's why I work through summer. I know August will be here before I know it and I don't want to wait until then to start trying to figure out what I'm teaching.
I haven't blogged a lot about it here because I have a teaching blog now. I try to keep all classroom related things there. I do plan to give you a quick tour of the classroom once it is finished.
I'm sure you won't be surprised to find that my room is going to be decked out in bright colors & owls. There will be no doubt that I'm the crazy owl lady. :)
