I started this blog with the full intention of updating it weekly. Unfortunately, that has not occurred with my chaotic life. I have been held hostage by Crohn's Disease for most of this year and m just returning to school after a two month surgical absence. I am feeling much better now and am hoping to get back into the swing of things quickly. One added incentive to getting myself organized is that I have a student teacher starting on Monday!
Before I got too sick, I was surprised in my classroom one morning in the midst of teaching by my two little boys carrying in bouquets of balloons, and several other people, many unknown to me, entering my classroom. My principal thn informed both me and my class that I had been selected by Office Max as a winner of A Day Made Better campaign that recognized outstanding teachers. I was awarded boxes full of school and office supplies, a brand new leather desk chair, and best of all, all of my kids got supply boxes to take home. So desperately needed in our community. It was an amazing and overwhelming experience, and I am so grateful to be recognized for doing something that I love so much.
