Well my co-worker over at Live, Laugh, Love, Teach have 21 days left of school. I am excited for the end of the year, but now we have the task of testing 80 children that are on our Title 1 caseload. 

 So I am passing the time linking up with fellow bloggers! This time I am linking up with Amber over at Adventures of a Third Grade Teacher. 

3 Great Things

1. Our district has graciously trained our educators in:
 7 Habits of Highly Effective People! Next year we will do, The Leader in Me book study. 

2. I kept my job as a Title 1 teacher. Last year I only taught K-1 literacy. This year I was given the opportunity to teach K-4 Literacy and Math Intervention. 

3. Working in 1 building and NOT having to travel between buildings. This has given me the ability to get to know the staff and feel like I belong. Instead of the disconnect I felt last year going between buildings. 

3 Not-So-Great Things

1. I have found that there is just not enough time in the day. I am on the run from the time I wake up until the time that I go to bed. I never imagined that being a wife, mom and teacher would be such hard work. 

2. Piloting a new math intervention program mid-year. I love the fact that I now have a curriculum to follow but we started mid-year which is making it difficult. The program is great and it is a wonderful asset to our program.

3. Still working on this one!


  1. I hear you on not enough time in the day!! Somehow we always manage to do it though!! Glad to hear you are housed in one building, that would drive me nuts to have to travel from place to place!!

  2. Our building lost its Title 1 money this year. I feel bad for the teachers that were doing the Title 1 interventions because they loved what they were doing. I am your newest follower! Cute Blog!

  3. I am glad you kept your job and you are in one building!

    Thank you for coming to visit me! I would love for you to come by again and follow me back! =)
