So, I participated in #bhteacherweek16! Look at me!!!!! Two blog posts in two days! It's a record!!! I kept up every day and it was fun to see all of the different posts!
This was the layout for the week.
Here are my posts from the week:
Meet Me Monday...I shared a picture of me and the new hubby, Jabar! Love this pic! Need to go through all of my wedding pictures and get them ordered! I'm also a 1st grade teacher in Nevada, I LOVE my Oregon Ducks, and I'm a huge animal lover! I think college football is the greatest thing on the planet. Ducks coming up tonight...GOOOOO DUCKS! I have 2 awesome cats, Spencer and Princess Leia, and a crazy dog named Betty. They're on Insta quite a bit if you follow me!
I've become much more of an introvert in my old age, although I've always kept to myself pretty much. Not much is more exciting to me than just having a nice, peaceful weekend at home working on whatever I please!
Teaching Tuesday...I haven't taken a ton of pics yet this year. We just finished our second week of school. I shared a pic from the past of kids during our Magnet Science Unit, which is one of my faves to teach! I wrote a grant many years ago and was able to buy a ton of different types of magnets and activities for my classroom. Kiddos always have such a great time with magnets and science in general! So much fun and good for my students, too!
Where I Work Wednesday...I work in the great state of Nevada, in Henderson, which is like a suburb of Las Vegas, I guess. I love this place! I love sun and we have 300+ sunny days every year. Being a native Oregonian, I was sick of the rain and I'm so glad I made the move here in 2006! Now, I LOVE rain, because it's rare and beautiful in the desert. The flash floods are another thing.... We love to get to Oregon a few times a year to see my parents and I do appreciate the green and trees more now than when I was growing up! I enjoy my school here as well, have a good-sized classroom, and started flexible seating this year, which I am loving!
However, I had to post this adorable shirt worn by one of my first graders this week. I'm fluent in cat as well!
Friends Friday...A picture of my First Grade Team (along with a twin of one), my Principal, and my husband at our wedding. That night was fun, but went by so fast!! I had three tables of teacher friends there from my current school and my old school here. Lots of family, too. Such a great day and night!
