one of those days...

I am knee-deep in my portfolio, which is due on Sunday, by 9pm...but I saw this, and it can not be more true at this point.  10 school days...14 calendar days from today it will be glorious, summer vacation, and I don't believe I've ever deserved time off from work more!

to all those teachers out there...we can do it...hang in there!!

Happy Memorial Day!

more than just an extra day off from is a day to say thank you to all of those who have served our country, so we can be free to do what we do...I really hope that you all stop to realize how lucky you are to live in America :)

I am proud of both my Grandfathers who served in the military...and countless friends that I have who are so much braver than I am :)

thank you for all that you do for our country that allows us to be free!

we really are special...

just a quick rant...because it's almost the end of the year and while I have had really great experiences...I had a thought, that kind of made me a little irritated...when I was in Elementary school- maybe even Middle school...we called our classes like Art, Music, Home Ec (do they still have that any more?) and Gym- Specials...because that was how they were treated...special times to get out of your regular classroom, and learn something different, new and something that would make you a well-rounded individual...

now they call them (at least in Baltimore City) Resources...doesn't have quite the magical ring to it that Specials has...maybe that's why the kids take it so much for granted...

I know I can be a bit of an overachiever...wish I could instill that quality in a few more of my students... least it's Friday and a long weekend!  hooray!

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

In an effort to be more social in the blogosphere...I'm joining a few "link-ups" that I've seen on a few blogs I really like reading!  So here goes my first round of...

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

so even though the game is in process as we speak, I am really loving being able to watch hockey pretty much every night!  and especially loving that my hometown team, the NJ Devils are still in it!  a fierce rivalry for all New Yorkers and New would be awesome to see the Devils in the Stanley Cup! 

I am also loving that we have 14...yes count them 14 days of school left until summer vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A hot pink treasury!
