What's In My Mama's Bag?

Hey loves! Praying that all is well. School has been out and summer has been in! I've been doing LOTS of relaxing and swimming. I'm very excited because my parents are in town and we have had so much fun so far!!! As many of you know, I have a teacher YouTube channel and from time to time I like share personal info besides work. About three weeks ago I did a what's in my bag video. Well I asked my mom if she would be willing to do one too. She said, "yes!" However, once her and my dad arrived I could tell she was a bit nervous. I'm so glad she did, because it ended up being a hilarious and fun video. I thank God daily for all of my blessings because we aren't promised tomorrow. Mama bear if you are reading this, I LOVE YOU and THANK YOU for being the BEST mom in my world!!!!! Enjoy the video loves and feel free to share! LOL
                 


Dancing On Desks

Hey ya'll! I can't believe this is my last week with my Firsties and summer break begins. Another fab year in the books. My Firsties just finished all of their benchmark testing two weeks ago. They worked so hard and I wanted them to know that I was very P R O U D of them. So I told them they needed to bring their shades tomorrow for a dance party. They were so excited when I told them the very next day, to put on their shades and get on their desks and let's get our groove on. I enjoy creating memorable moments with my class. These kids they will remember how I made them feel. Like a somebody. Have a fab week my friends.

             



I'M TIRED

Hey ya'll!!! Hope all is well with you all. I know many of you teacher friends of mine feel my pain. It's the end of the year and it's testing, testing, testing, and more testing. It's so exhausting!!! My heart aches for my Firsties too. They have worked so hard this school year and continue to work hard. I just wanted to express how I was feeling today. I LOVE my job and thankful for my class, but it just gets like this sometimes where piles happen. :) I just want to give ((HUGS)) to all you teachers who feel my pain and understand. Blessings!


P.S Thank you to a former parent and student from three years ago for my beautiful yellow roses. Love you The Mitchell's!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week 2016-2017

Hey hello my beautiful blessings! I can't believe it is May 1st! This school year has flown by!! This week is teacher appreciation week. Now, let's be honest.

Whether you're a preschool teacher or college professor. I appreciate those of you who truly bust their buns on a constant basis. Check out my YouTube video below. If you're not subscribed to my channel go ahead and make sure you do. You don't want to miss a video. Happy Teacher Appreciation Week and God bless each one of you!! Love ya!

           



My New Blog Design 2017

Words can't express how GRATEFUL I am for my amazing blog designer Alexis Sanchez at
Laugh Eat Learn . I have been blogging for awhile now and I was in need of a more modern, fun, and classy look. I needed something that represented me, but also I needed someone who saw my vision and could execute it. Well let me tell you my fab friends, Alexis definitely did that. I appreciate good customer service and Alexis gave just that. I was searching online for a new blog designer who had the personality I was looking for. God brought me to her and I'm THANKFUL. From the very first  email to the last email (which was number 69 in total) Alexis was EXTREMELY patient, kind, and understanding. If you're a looking for a new look or start a new website this is your lady here. She's FABULOUS! I mean truly FABULOUS! Thank you Alexis for you FAB work. You make my teacher heart very happy!!


Teaching With Grace and Not Perfection

Hi ya'll! Hope you have had a blessed week. I can't believe today is April 1st. The school year has been flying by. As you know, I've been creating content for my YouTube channel. I felt the need to create a video about teaching with GRACE and not perfection. I'm not going to lie, I have a type A personality. I want everything neat and tidy and well organized and everything to run smoothly. Well that doesn't always work out that way. As I have grown as a person an educator, I've learned that there is NEVER going to be perfect everything! It's okay that your classroom doesn't look picture perfect every single day. It's okay if a lesson doesn't go quite the way you wanted it too. It's okay to burn rubber out of your building to get home and get some peace. Just check out the video below and see what I mean. Remember your BEST is what counts!Love ya'll!


                       

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!
