PrACTice Like A Champion!





Hi Everyone!  Sooo… I have ONLY 1.5 days left (YAY SUMMER!) … and like alllllll teachers at the end of school year… I have been CRAZY busy (mostly crazy)!  But, I have also done some reflection on the school year.  More specifically, in motivating my students to do their best, persevere, and to have good character.  I genuinely want my students to be OVERALL great people.  But how do we teach them how to own these behaviors?  What helped me to own positive behaviors?  As a former athlete, who dabbled in some coaching, I realized that those qualities of being part of a sports team have been crucial to who I have become.  Sooooo… this summer I am going to try an athlete inspired blog series for building character in your classroom!  

STAY TUNED!

Tell All Tuesday - Summer Snapshot


I am ALMOST on summer vacation (YAY)!!!! I am linking up with Jayme from Teach Talk Inspire and Diana from My Day in K for Tell All Tuesday … Summer Snapshot!  

My summer snapshot is of my favorite place … THE BEACH!  I live near (30-45 minutes) away from the beach, soooooo LUCKY!  




I don't discriminate when it comes to beaches!  You can find me bopping around beaches in Maine, New Hampshire, and Mass.  At all my fav locations, I obviously have favorite foods to eat!  My MOST favorite is DEFINITELY beach pizza.  Beach pizza is square pizza with sweet sauce!  #delicious

I am also LUCKY because I have lots of teacher friends who love the beach!  I always can find someone to come with me. 



That is my friend, Amy!  We have a battle of the tans … and we think we are mermaids!  As in, we totally go swimming in the ocean and do handstands etc… (yesssss… you read correctly)  

Thanks for checking out my summer snapshots!

Tell All Tuesday - 2 Truths AND 1 Lie


I am linking up with Jayme from Teach Talk Inspire and Diana from My Day in K for Tell ALL Tuesday, summer linky party!!! #onAtuesday 

This week's linky party is the oh so fun game, 2 truths and 1 lie.  


I am going to tell you 3 "facts" about myself and in the comment section below, leave a message on which 2 facts you think are true and the 1 fact you think is false.  In three days, I will tell you the TRUTH!

HERE WE GO…

FALSE - I have actually NEVER dyed my hair!  Soooo many people think it is bizarre that I have not (when my hair turns gray it will happen) hahaha I can be very indecisive and anal about certain things and I know that having roots would make me cra! 

I am OBSESSED with dying my hair… soooooo many different colors.  I have dark hair so I am always adding in blues, deep purples, and pinks to make my hair color pop.  I was actually thinking this summer to get really BOLD and dye my hair lighter?!?!  Should I?

TRUE

I have always wanted to be a teacher, since I started school.  I would come home and play school with my dolls.  I would pretend to be my teachers and mimic EVERYTHING about them… down to chewing the same gum.  Or did I want to be something else and totally disliked school?!?!



TRUE - PS I am sooooo happy that others share my love for this show!

I have an obsession with Law & Order Special Victims Unit.  I could  watch that show for hours and hours.  I can't get enough of it!  If it is on, you can guarantee that I will be lying on the couch watching it!  I am not sure it is normal to be in love with that show … haha … 

Soooooo… pick my 2 truths and my 1 lie!

June … already?!?!

Where has this school year gone???  I guess it is JUNE?!? I am linking up with Farley for JUNE Currently.  I am NOT ready for this year to be over and to say good bye to my students!  Even on this rainy FULL MOON day … I am stillllllllllllllll sad that we only have 18 days left!  

Please if you can, head over to Farley's page and make a donation to help out Wimberley, TX!




Let's see what I am Currently up to:


LISTENING

I am watching Giada make some delicious looking food!  I love cooking … I think cutting vegetables and cooking is relaxing!

LOVING

UMMM … I am loving my nail color.  Soooooo my nail girl, Shelby, is AMAZING!!!!!  She just gets what colors I like … as in... she usually has my colors ready to go!  We are both obsessed with using 2 colors, for an original color!  We use a color for a base coat then add a similar color on top for a different effect!  LOVE!!!!!!!!


THINKING

Yes, I am THINKING of my to-do list.  Not doing it … just thinking and procrastinating!  I think I totally work better under pressure (that's how I roll, I don't recommend it, but it's ME!) hahahaha EOY paperwork……..

WANTING

To print and hang my NEW math posters by The Bubbly Blonde!  My theme is black with neons and I HAD to have these posters!!!!!  I AM SOOOO OBSESSED!!!!!

NEEDING

Eeeeeek!  THIS. WEEKEND.  I am attending the New England Teacher Bloggers Night Out!  I am super nervous because I do not know anyone… but I am also SUPER excited to meet everyone who share the same passion that I do!  

SUMMER LOVIN'

It is almost summer and it is a time to relax(ish)!

1.  I love reading and during the school year I do not always have time to read books for my own pleasure.  Soooo, summertime I get to read books … YAY!  Any good beach reads?

2.  I LOVE the beach!  I love the sand, jumping in the waves (pretending I am a mermaid), and getting a TAN!   It is soooooo relaxing … and who can forget the beach pizza … DELICOUS!

3.  NO alarm clock!  Ummm … yes please!  I am not a fan of alarm clocks … hahaha I am not exactly a morning person (sorry not sorry)  

So … I guess June is here … ready or not!  Alright I am offffffff to motivate and tackle at least one thing on my to do list (probably printing out my new math posters)!
