I definitely hear it....
It sounds like a clock ticking...Ticking down the last few days before I go back. I begin teaching summer school on Wednesday and while I will really miss being home, I am also looking forward to getting back at it.
Today I'm linking up with two linky parties...First, Monday Made It with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics.
So here are two things I made this week, one for school and one for home.
For my door at school
Homemade sweet pickles with cucumbers from the garden
I did make a few other things, but they are in my classroom (I forgot to take pictures before relocating them) so I will post pics of those later. :) I don't know about you, but I'm a little forgetful these days....
Next, I'm excited to do a special link up this week with the gals from Blog Hoppin' for Teacher Week '13!
What a great way to gather up some last minute ideas to feel ready for the new year! (I purposefully didn't say "be ready" because I'm not sure if I ever really am... :)
Today's Topic is "Let's Talk About Me!: Meet the Teacher"
This will be my 6th year teaching 4th grade. I came to decide on teaching as a career after "trying out" several others -- inside sales, real estate, employment recruiting...With all of this real life experience, I am proud to say that teaching is my passion and something I want to do for a really long time.
Source: www.venspired.comI have been a blog reader for at least three years. I love the ideas and inspiration that I get from other bloggers and I know that I am a better teacher because of it! I began blogging myself in March of this year and absolutely love it!
This past June, I opened my TpT Store to share many of the resources that I have created. Doing this has encouraged me to look deeply at my instruction and to try to improve on what I was already doing. I feel that this has also helped me be a better teacher.
Well, that's enough about me! Can't wait to check out BOTH of these linky parties later today to gather some more ideas and meet some new bloggers.
If you dropped by,(and made it all the way to the end of this very long post), I would love to hear from you. Please leave me a comment to let me know you were here! :)
