Hello, readers. I hope you are having a great week! The first week of school has come and gone successfully–whew! It’s always a little rough. By the end of the week, all of the students understand the routine and expectations (hopefully!!). We are already learning the National Anthem with my older students. There are so many ginormous words in the song that I always sit down during one lesson and tell them the story behind it. Then they want to sing it all the time because they know what the words mean!! With 45 minute class times, I am also big into brain breaks. The kids will put their heart and soul into learning if they know a reward is coming in the form of dancing, singing, and rapping away…i.e. the Learning Station. Their “brain break” is all about music and they don’t even realize it!! Exciting times!
I’ve talked before about the importance of taking care of myself as a teacher. One of the most important things for me is what I wear to work. I am sure many of you will understand! We each have our own needs for our professions. I need to feel comfortable for all of the miles I walk in the classroom and feel professional for all of the parents and students who walk through my door. I thought I would share two of my outfits today. If you can’t tell, I really enjoy re-wearing items often, carry the same purse almost every day (I’m too tired to change out purses!), and wear thrift store clothing often. I am working on improving the quality of my photos. They will get better, I promise!!
Secondhand Store Tunic ($3.25), GAP skinny jeans (Clearance-$20), Charlotte Russe sandals ($12.95), Secondhand Store Calvin Klein purse ($39.99)
Charlotte Russe Blazer (Clearance-$9.99), Secondhand Store Vince Camuto striped shirt ($15) worn previously in this blog post, GAP jeans, ($20), Charlotte Russe sandals (same as in previous picture) ($12.95)

Daily Dose of Whimsy says: “This is so cute! As a kid I remember my teachers having posters hanging all around the room. And it’s true! I would zone out reading them over and over! I think your room looks so fun! You’ve got a great creative eye!”
Thank you ever so much! You really made my day with this compliment. Thank you for commenting!

Thanks Tammy for writing that! You know what I mean about all of those cups of hot coffee!
