If you are in the education world, you know that the month before Spring Break is the WORST month of the entire school year. I beg for Standardized Testing during these extremely stressful 30 days. I work with a population of students that is 75% free and reduced, diverse, English as a Second Language, Special Ed, pretty much you name it we have it. I WOULDN'T WANT IT ANY OTHER WAY!!! My kids are so amazing in so many ways, the stories you will hear are funny, sad, and sometimes completely NUTS - that when I say them out loud I cannot believe that it happened to me. For the sake of privacy of all involved, I will never reveal the school I work at, the location, or use anyone's real names. I am still working this week, which is a blessing in disguise. I can actually get work done without someone coming in my office needing something, having something to share, or a fabulous student driving me nuts with their stories and interesting tid-bits of information.
My plan for the next three days is to organize my supply closet, my file cabinet, book shelf, and desk. I am going to use my handy dandy LABEL maker and new organizational bins to complete the task. You will learn quickly, I'm obsessed with my label maker. I have 2 - a hand held one that I can take anywhere and one that hooks up to my computer so I can use all my downloaded fonts - I'm in love with all of the amazing fonts you can find online. I'll share that in another post. Let's just say, like my days at school, my life is never boring, I am always making up projects for myself to do. Before and After pictures are a must.
Enjoy your Spring Break!
Until next time...
