Friday, August 9, 2013


As of three days ago, I am a....


I will miss second grade so much, but I relocated schools (one week before school started). This job is closer to home and now I'll be working with Rebecca from Darlin' in First

What was unfortunate was that my classroom was completely set up.

But now, it's being set up. 
This is my before and after shot. Working in reverse here.... 
And yes, I fit my classroom into a truck and my Honda Fit. I purged SO much and just left it in the classroom for the next teacher. 

And here is my future classroom. 

Classroom reveal photos next week!!! 

So excited for the new adventure in my life. 

Oh.... and did you notice my header? 
Flying my way from second to first?

And my new button!

Christi Fultz fixed these up for me last week.

  1. Congratulations! I am so impressed with your excitement about moving not only classrooms, but schools. Others I have known have not embraced such change well. You are setting an great example of positive spirit. I hope you have an AWESOME year!!!

  2. Wow! Nothing like adding a little stress in your life! Best of luck setting up your room in a new school! I teach first grade and love it. You will too. It's great that you already have someone to turn too!

  3. Oh my! You are handling this stress so well! I feel your excitement and enthusiasm at a time when many others wouldn't be so happy....good for you! I can't imagine having to move schools and a grade level(!), never mind just a classroom at this time and after having set up a room! You must have tips about how to do it that you can have a blog post on.

  4. Congrats! That is so exciting. A little crazy to make that decision so late in the summer but good for you for going for it.

  6. Congrats on your move and you have such a positive attitude! I switched from 2nd to 1st and at first it was challenging but now I love it! I hope you have a great start to the school year. I can not wait to see your new room pictures!!
