My Student Teaching Experience

My sweet teacher buddy A Classroom Diva and I share our experiences during our student teaching. My experience was about 14 years ago and it was an amazing one.Thank you, Ms Sara Timmons and Ms Patricia Williamson. You two were FABULOUS mentors to me. Your kindness, encouragement, dedication, and truly love for children just made me more EAGER to have my own classroom someday. Proud to let you know that I have been teaching over a decade and some change, a PTA Lifetime member, and Teacher of The Year twice in two different districts. Thank you so much! God is so good!

100th Day of School With Grandma Pearl

Hey loves! Today makes it day 102 for my Firsties and I. My Firsties had a very exciting 100th day of school with my grandma Pearl (wink) this year. My grandma comes every 100th day of school for me so that I can rest on this day. Man, my Firsties had a FAB time with her and she enjoyed them. I will always do what I can to keep those kids and I mean every single one of them HAPPY! Check out the youtube video granny Pearl created. ((HUGS))

Sometimes Teachers Just Want To Hide Under Their Desks, And Eat Chocolate

Hey loves! Hope all is well with you. I'm doing alright. As you can tell by the title of this post, life can sometimes just get you down. As a teacher, when you go above and beyond the call of duty it can weigh on you. Especially, when you have personal things going on in life. You still have to come to work with a BRAVE face. I will NEVER question my career choice. I have ALWAYS LOVED being a teacher. Just sometimes, life can knock you down and you just want to hide and regroup. LOL Wishing you all a blessed week.  #alwayspray

Do You Want To Build A Snowman?

Hey fab friends!! I'm so excited that Christmas break has arrived. The thought of being able to relax and enjoy my time to regroup feels amazing. However, I do miss seeing those cute little faces of my Firsties. Since I began teaching over a decade and some years ago, I have always given my classes a gift before the Christmas break. Just something I always knew that I wanted to do and was going to do. I had the pleasure of working for an AMAZING teacher. She worked with middle school kids with severe behavior problems. I was her aide. It was one of the best experiences in my life. One particular day she had these kiddos create these ADORABLE snowmen and from the moment I saw them I knew that was going to be the gift. That was over 20 years ago. I have posted a two videos of mine from YouTube so that you can see all my snowmen completed and how to create them. Alright my fab friends until next time, enjoy your break!

God Knows What You Need

Hey loves! How are you? I'm fine and well. Today was our last day before the Thanksgiving break next week. I plan to rest, eat, and catch up on some Netflix. I will be honest I have been VERY tired all week and today I felt sad and tired. When you become a teacher you either give it your all or nothing. I give it my all!! I truly believe that God knows what you need and when you need it. I received this precious email tonight from a grandma of one my FAB Firsties. Keep swimming everyone, even when you don't feel like it. God is so good. Have a FAB weekend everyone.

Manequinn Challenge Ellen DeGeneres Style

I don't know about you all, but I LOVE seeing all the #mannequinchallenge over the internet and I LOVE me some Ellen DeGeneres! I LOVE how Ellen is such a KIND and POSITIVE human being, She does all that she can to try and help the world and make dreams come true. Oh, how I wish she could make my dreams come true with a new car. That's beside the point! She just makes people happy! The one out of many things about Ellen's show is that she always ends her show with, "Be Kind To One Another." I'm a true believer in KINDNESS and that's something I talk about daily with my little blessings. I truly believe it's the reason why I have won teacher of the year twice in two different districts. I establish a safe, fun, loving, and kind classroom every single year. Lord, knows that as teachers we spend such long hours and money into our classrooms. However, the success of each child is rewarding enough for me. I definitely, don't do this for the money.

I wanted to have my little blessings do the mannequin challenge by promoting being kind to one another. In the video you will see my blessings, hugging, playing Buzzin' With Kindness, giving high 5's, holding signs that say be kind to one another, and Filling Buckets by writing kind notes. These Firsties ROCKED it! Bless their hearts to be so young they did such a FAB job and I'm so PROUD of them! Enjoy the video!
