Anyway, now that I've whined a little bit it's time for one of my favorite link ups - A Day in the Life of a Teacher.
9:00 - 12:00 Math Training
Yesterday I went to training on our new math curriculum. My county just adopted Scott Foresman. It was crazy how much things have changed since the last time we adopted a math series. A lot of this series focused on what we will be able to do online and with our Activboards. Our kids can even take their tests online, which is great, but I'm not thinking I will do that with my first graders, at least not at the beginning of the year.
12:00 - 1:30 Lunch
After training, one of my sweet friends invited me to lunch. My plan was to go to school, but seriously - lunch or school? Lunches are about to be 15 minutes and I'm about to be at school ten to twelve hours a day. Lunch with a friend sounded like fun! I bet you can't guess what I chose for lunch? Yep, Mexican! It is a miracle that I haven't turned into a quesadilla or cheese dip bowl yet.
1:30 - 3:15 School
I know, I know. I just told you I decided not to worry about school. Well, I didn't. I went with Laura to help her out for a few. Her school building just had a total remodel and when I say total remodel, I mean they installed outlets, new lights, tile, paint, intercoms, etc. Her school is one of the oldest in my county, so it was time to update it to the here and now. Updating though meant that ALL their stuff had to be moved to the gym and pods for the summer. Now that they are moving everything back, she's working to get her furniture put into place which is how I helped a little.
3:15 - 6:00 ?????
Yes, I put a ton of question marks. I did that because I piddled around and burned time. I played on Facebook, emailed, checked out my new kiddos heading my way, played games, and thought about everything I needed to get done. Here's one of my piddling photos.
6:00 - 7:00 Target Trip
Oh, how I love Target, let me count the ways... 1. They have the best lamps for classrooms. 2. Their ottomans make incredible storage areas. 3. Did I mention they now have Scentos? 4. Ours has a Starbucks. 5. Their Dollar Spot is more like a "Hit the jackpot!" spot. 6 - 9. They have EVERYTHING! Well, everything except for the set of bookcases I needed, so what is a girl to do? 10. Check on the Internet to find the closest Target with bookcases and go grab bookcases there!
7:00 - 9:00 Dinner
We chose Outback. When I was a kid, I loved eating there! I had no idea that I liked steak at that time, so I always got the Alice Springs chicken. It also is the place that my hubby and I first went out. We were just friends then, but we still enjoy discussing that dinner. So, since we had to run to Target, we decided to eat there. It was a good dinner, but I didn't realize how much Longhorn trumps Outback.
9:00 - 12:00 ?????
More piddling, playing games, and wasting time... some days you create away and other days you just need to breathe for a second. Yesterday, I decided to breathe.
Hope you guys all have a great day! I will do my best to blog a few more times this week since I know next week will be cray cray with a side of cray cray!!! Oh, I LOVE the first week of school. There is something special about getting to start over and try new things.
