I pay for a monthly subscription to Spotify and I LOVE IT. It's a great way to discover new music and take music with me wherever I go. I'm currently hooked on Spotify's Acoustic Covers playlist... It is SO GREAT! Spotify also introduced a new feature that will play songs to match your running pace. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm excited to see how it works!
Y'ALL. I GOT MOVED BACK TO SECOND GRADE!!!!!!!!!
I am (clearly) so thrilled. I was excited to teach 4th grade, but staying in 2nd will make my life a little easier. I will already be living in a new city, working in a new school, and planning a wedding. Learning a new curriculum would have made my transition even more difficult. Luckily for me, a 2nd grade position opened up at my new school and the principal asked if I wanted it, since he knew I came from 2nd. I AM SO EXCITED!!!
All of you upper elementary teachers that have been sharing resources and advice with me, I still love you!!
So, along those lines...
I got to see my new classroom yesterday. I have two HUGE chalkboards. I honestly didn't know chalkboards existed in schools anymore. Do any of you have chalkboards? What do I do with them?? How do I write on them?? I hate the feeling of chalk and I hate chalk dust! Help!
The FOMO has started already. I really thought about going to Vegas this year for the conference, but I just can't swing it with my big move to Atlanta coming up so soon. I will be living vicariously through you all as I pack my boxes and clean out my current home!
I have only been on summer break for two weeks now, but I have only created one new product. I haven't had a ton of time, but I know I need to use my summer time and energy wisely because it's much harder to find time to create during the school year. I am hoping to get at least 10 good quality products added to my store before I go back to school! What do you do to get product inspiration?
What am I really good at? Well, I'm really good at spending money. Particularly on clothes for myself, yummy food, or treats for people I love. Does that count? Ha!
I guess that's a hard question because it's hard to compliment yourself without sounding conceited. At that forefront of my mind is the fact that I have a good eye and a knack for making things visually appealing. It was fun to see my empty new classroom yesterday, because the possibilities are endless! I may not be 100% thrilled with what I have to work with, but I know it will turn out beautiful, neat, and welcoming.
Stay tuned to see my new room!!
Have a FABULOUS July!
