It's Back to School for Me!

So I just picked out my first day outfit and outfits for the rest of the week.  I am such a dork.  It's something I have done since was in grade school.  My mom still jeers me for laying out my clothes like a little person each night. I would take them off the hangers and spread them out over my chair. I just liked to be ready in the morning.  On the other hand, my little sister saved time by wearing hers to bed, so she could sleep as late as possible. She'd probably die if she found out I told ya'll so let's keep that between us. :)

Back to school things to do!
1. Paperwork
 I do have loads of IEPs to write actually, I believe it's 12 that need to be written in about 6 weeks that's 2 a week.  Yikes, I better get moving.  A few years ago our school piloted IEP rewrites in the fall. It was super crazy but once the paperwork was done it was so nice not to worry about meetings scattered throughout the year.  We are actually trying to phase it out now but I really didn't mind it. The best part was actually meeting the parents before parent/teacher conferences. It  really helped to build positive relationships from the start.

2. Back to school staff development
Meet and greets tomorrow and other exciting meetings planned for this week.  Totally wish we had some make and take Pinterest Professional Developments. Actually that might not be such a bad idea.

3. My classroom
 My classroom is progressing nicely, so I feel confident I'm almost ready for back to school night next Wednesday! Here is a sneak peak. What do you think? Feel free to leave any suggestions on better storage ideas. I need to laminate some motivational posters to hang up. I also plan to add some more borders around the white board. So far so good!
The bulletin board outside my office/classroom. SWEET right??! lol

My guided reading/small and group table. I took down my curtain over the shelves to iron. That shelf  is such a mess right now. :( 

Student work table, para desks and you can see my classroom library in the back corner :)

 Till next time fellow bloggers! :) 



  1. That bulletin board is SWEEEET! Can't wait to see you tomorrow. It's time to rock n' roll! I have a little something for you for tomorrow too!

  2. LOVE your room! Miss teaching with you- your kids are SO lucky to have you!
