The Past Two Weeks

Over the past two weeks, I've worked a lot of hours getting myself, and my classroom, ready for this school year.  I didn't take genuine before pictures, but I snapped these a day or two into the cleaning/rearranging process. 

Some days were like a blur...

and some days I just felt like it was a lot of work.

But tonight, I met my students... 

and I was so glad to be ready for them. 

Are you surprised that I'm teaching 2nd grade?  I didn't really see it coming either.  But I'm really excited about this opportunity--and I'm so thankful to my friends who have shared elementary ideas with me.  Now please, someone, grant me good penmanship; this writing in perfect print and teaching cursive business is scaring me!!!!  I love the staff at LCS, I really love (and am so thankful for) my mentor and fellow second-grade teacher, and I can't wait to build relationships with my students.  I'm looking forward to a great year. :)


  1. I'm so excited for you that you get to teach at a Christian school. Hopefully, your first year will be as full of good learning experiences as Mary Jane's was.

  2. Looks great!!! Your classroom is so cute! Can't wait to hear what you thought of your students! :) You will love second grade!
