A couple of pictures from my adventures…mostly because I never upload pictures!
One of the times I visited Manhattan this semester! Time in the Bistro and with Maggie!!
My new mug to remember the Bistro when I am without it!
My pedicure from my little sister!!

Celebrating the marriage of our good friend Amber…she is the one in the tan!
So recently (as in October) I assigned my students book reports. I got some pretty great ones. I am so proud of the creativity displayed by my students. I think this is the first time, that they have really impressed me…well 2/3rds of them! But I am so excited to show them off to the other teachers. I am also excited to have them show them off to their classmates in extra credit presentations next week.
I also gave a test on Friday. I know I am such a mean teacher. Some of them did pretty well on it. But I am going to have to reteach some of the information. I guess that’s what makes me a teacher is when I am already thinking of ways to reteach information and get them where they need to be. I also don’t want to give up on them. I know they are capable of know this stuff.
Have I mentioned how challenging and exciting teaching can be? Because it is everyday. I don’t think I ever want to go back to selling t-shirts or ever working in a cubicle. I would be so bored out of my mind.
Needless to say I have had some days that definitely go in the good bucket! Slowly, I am loving this job more and more…pictures of my classroom to come!!
