BOO testing... YAY for soon-to-come freebies!

The past two weeks have just been completely packed with back to back testing.  Last week was the regular testing with all of my accommodation kiddos so it was lots of reading, scribing, and extended time!  This week I have a couple of my own students that need make ups but then because we are such a small school, I am the only teacher available to administer all of the make-ups as well so I have 13 students and 28 tests that have to be made up by...umm... the end of the day TOMORROW! goodness gracious it's gonna be a crazy day! 

The plus side... Only 3 of those assessments have to be read aloud which means I get the whole day in between pick ups and drop offs and direction reading to work on lesson plans!! Woohoo!! AND... tomorrow is my last day before spring break! Can you believe it's time for spring break already????


Well, stay tuned because I am going to have some pretty good freebies coming soon to try and welcome all of my readers back to my blog!  There will be a little something for everyone, I promise!!

Time to reclaim my love for teaching!

So if there is anyone still out there **crickets chirp**... my last post was a long time ago and I shared some struggles I had been having with my current teaching placement and pure exhaustion from a new baby!  What a year it has been! Reagan is almost one and is growing like a weed!
 
She's so stinkin cute isn't she?!?!?!  Well now that she is getting bigger, things are a bit easier here at home.

Things at school however are not nearly as easy and I have definitely lost some of my passion which I never thought would happen.  I decided that it is time for a change and I will be looking for a new placement for next year.  I am excited and nervous and thrilled and terrified and mostly passionate again!  I am hoping to really find a place that I can fit in well with and feel like I am making a difference!  With that new found passion and excitement, I have decided to try and come back to my love... teacher blogging and where better to increase my passion but with all of you lovelies!  I am hoping to find a new placement soon and get making lots of great things to share with you all!  I am going to be working hard to make my last trimester with my kiddos of the past 4 years be a great one for them and I hope that I have some things to share with you all that you will find helpful!  Can't wait to see what everyone has been up to and I hope that I am welcome back with open arms!  I've missed you all!
