Monday Monday Monday


I am looking forward to tomorrow...I am so excited to start the preparation for our end of the year Culmination Ceremony...This is extra special this year for me because it will be my last Culmination EVER, as I am moving to teach fourth grade...

We are doing the beach theme...they will look so cute in their little outfits...
The culmination isn't until the 7th, but we have a lot of practice to do!

I can't wait for summer...I am not going anywhere, as I am working, but only working part time is great... I have a lot of work to do getting a new classroom ready...and learning how to use a Smart-board... (insert scared and panic face here)

DIY

Ok...in a few short months I will be leaving Preschool and moving to Fourth grade. As one would figure I have nothing for my Fourth grade classroom... So because of this I thought it would be only proper to complete my first DIY project for my Fourth grade classroom and since in Fourth grade you learn all about California I figured I would start with that.
So here it is....

Not bad for my first DIY projet!

Getting To Know You Sunday

1. what's your favorite rainy day activity?
It always seems that it only rains when I have to go to work, but when it doesn't I like to stay home. It's not about doing anything, but just being at home.

2. what time do you go to bed?
I fall asleep at 11:00pm. I am usually in bed no later than 10:00pm.

3. how many magazines do you subscribe to?
Two magazines...Cooking Light and All You

4. did you sell all your belongings because you thought the world was ending yesterday?
No. I didn't even think about it until my sister called to see if I was taken by the rapture.

5. what's your beauty obssesion?
I don't have one. I simply wash my face with face soap.

6. if you could only wear one designer/brand for the rest of your life...what would it be?
Gap
7. what's your summer must have?
Air conditioning

8. do you make weekly dinner menus?
No...I don't usually cook

Fourth Grade What?




So here is the deal... I have wanted to go back to school for a while now and pursue my Masters and Teaching Credential, but have not been able to since you have to student teach. Which I think is just crazy seeing that I have been teaching for seven years, but whatever... If you are unaware when you work in a Preschool in California you are not able to complete your Masters and Credential because you can only student teach in a K-12 classroom which is rather hard when you are a full time teacher already... so no matter what it was just not going to work for me staying in Preschool.
I was offered a position as a Preschool Specialist in San Francisco that would have doubled my salary which is great and all, but the end result still would leave me without my Masters or Credential so there was no point. I was offered a position as a fourth grade teacher at another school and I accepted. Holy Cow I am going to teach fourth grade...This is going to be very hard for me... I am leaving my babies, my love, my life for the past seven years. I have been a Preschool Director for the past seven years. Fourth grade is very different from Preschool!!
I am very excited and nervous. I know I will do great, but it is still scary...
I want August to come already so I can start, but I don't want it to come because I have so much to do to get ready!!! Wish me luck!!

Now off to sell my entire classroom of Preschool Materials!

Screaming to no one. Awesome

So let me just cut right to the chase...

I hate today... I really enjoyed it until about 20 minutes ago when I walked into my house... I just want to scream... (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)

ok well that has to end, because there is no one hear to listen to me besides my animals and they NEVER listen to me.

On a different note tomorrow is a HUGE day for me... I am so nervous and as Babbling Abby would say 12 kinds of excited!!!!
