Man! What a crazy/busy summer it has been! First of all, my family MADE IT from North Carolina to sunny Florida! We headed out towards the end of June and have been trying to unpack boxes, paint, organize and everything in between, while still entertaining an almost 2 year old. I feel like I need a vacation! :) Here are a few pictures of our adventure down here.
|Gotta be one of my favorites!!!|
I feel like I've been SUCH the slacker lately when it comes to blogging and creating materials. Well, truth be told, I have been! But every single time I sit down to type or heck.. let's be honest, even turn on my computer, I see a box that needs to be put away, or a mess to clean. Life, basically. So, I was DETERMINED to create at least something small today to make sure I still could!
At the beginning of each school year, I always send home a newsletter of sorts to introduce myself and give parents my contact information. I prefer parents call my cell phone number rather than the school, because I'm sure to get any messages that way. Problem with the newsletter is that it usually gets thrown away, so I decided for this year to make business teacher cards. Very simple to create, with the background from Ashley Hughes. I cut out the cards, laminated them with Scotch Self-Seal laminating pouches, and cut them again. I'm thinking of putting magnets on the back of them so parents can put them on their refrigerator, but I'll first have to locate my magnetic tape for that.
Now... for a JOB UPDATE!
Do I have a job yet?! Nope. Not yet. I did, however go to an interview on Friday and should hear *tomorrow* if I made it to round two. If so, then I meet with the 3rd grade team (there would be 3 of us) and the decision would be made from there. It's almost the perfect job in the perfect location, so say a prayer for me.
3rd grade position? Did you catch that? Yes. I'm excited! Except what the heck do I do with "The 4th Grade Journey"??? Help!!!
Alright friends.. it feels good to be back! Be sure to go link up if you haven't already done so! :)
