Highs & Lows

WOW!  Have you checked out the 60 Budding Blogs!?!  There are so many new bloggers with some great ideas and information to share.  The best part is there are several from around the world, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and Canada...how awesome is that!  I hope you give them some love and start following their blogs.

I have missed out on so many great linkies this week, I just couldn't find the time to sit down and write a post :(.  I finally have a little time to myself, my boys are currently being babysat engrossed by the Disney Channel, to share some highs and lows of my classroom.  When I kept up with my family blog I used to post highs and lows of what was going on in our lives, but today they will all be related to school.


I met with our new team member last week.  I usually sit in on the interview committee, but she was interviewed over Spring Break.  I think she will be a great fit and have some new ideas and things to share with the team.


I don't believe I can say "sit down" with out a bit of agitation in my voice.  Seriously, why is it SO HARD to stay in your seat!

My end of year awards are typed up and just waiting to be printed.


Apparently the new thing to do at lunch is pull at your loose tooth until it comes out.  I screamed, yes raised my voice as loud as possible, "Does this look like the dentist office !?!" at my class today in the lunch room, it went silent...very silent.  Thankfully there was only one other class in there at the time.

I am not the only teacher currently loosing her mind this time of year :)

I can't take the crying, fussing, and arguing from 4th graders, almost 5th graders, anymore!

  7. I can relate to so many of the things on your list!! I am so tired of the talking, fussing, fighting, picking at each other, and constant talking!! I feel like the only things I say during a day are sit down and stop talking.
