Haven't posted in awhile!

I am sorry I haven't posted anything substantial in a while. But I didn't want to be a Debbie Downer or Negative Nelly. I have applied for many jobs over the last few weeks from many I don't hear anything until you get the general rejection letter through email. The one I am most mad hurt about is a interview I had with my own district. I have been with my district for almost 2 years doing sm. group intervention, summer school and before/after school tutoring. I have gone above and beyond in everything I do. I was told after my interview that I didn't have enough classroom experience. 

Anyways............. yes it makes me angry to think that was I do is NOT valuable enough experience for them to give me a job in a classroom. I am to the point that I know that I will go no where in the district that I am in and have to find greener pastures. Until then I will continue to look for a job and continue to do my job well. 


Last weekend my son went on a boy scout camping trip. They spent 4 hours canoeing on Sat. I met them for lunch and to take some pictures! They had a blast! 

Nate is in the front of the canoe with the hat on!

Listening contently to his scoutmaster. I wish he would listen to me like that!

Nate with his canoe buddy Josh! They had a blast together!

Packaways Review

I don't have an organizational gene in my body. It is not on my top list of priorities. In my eyes I have better things to do than have everything organized at home. Now my classroom is a different story. Everything has its place. I received  my Packaways last week. When I opened the box I had gotten the green and pink ones. LOVE the colors! 

I typically use plastic storage totes to store my teaching stuff when not using it, they can be a pain to store when they are empty. Packaways are a brand new storage tote made of corrugated plastic that fold away flat when not in use. 

They fold flat when not in use!! Makes for very easy storage!

The flap you see fold down and locks into place to make a strong bottom!

I LOVE, LOVE that you can write on them with a dry erase marker! So you know what you packed in the box. 

Packaways are made from corrugated plastic and are resistant against water and humidity. These storage boxes are also proudly made in the USA. Whether you're looking to help your child organize their room, organize your own space, or need some durable options for moving - Packaways has got you covered!

- I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

ok............I have been busy doing things I shouldn't be! I have been creating new products for my store. I don't really have a classroom to get ready for, since we are still in the process of moving everything into my new room. Being a Title 1 Teacher we don't start with kids until the 2nd week of school. This year the 1st, 4 weeks of school I will be working on MEAP & NWEA Prep for 3rd & 4th grade students. Then I will transition into working with K-4 for the rest of the year.
