What I Wore Wednesday-Teacher Edition2

Here is this weeks peek at my outfit of the week. This happens to be a bad picture but hey it's not about my expression or lack of one it's about the clothes.

I'm wearing brown and cream striped slacks from New York and Company along with a cream blouse from New York and Company. This was super comfortable all day long. I was even happy about the long sleeves by the end of the day since we had a fire drill and it was FREEZING cold outside today since it rained.

In other news...

OMGosh, this school year is really wearing me out! I'm not complaining though because I am having a GREAT time with my new little friends. It's only been FOUR weeks and I already feel like we have learned so much and that they have grown to be a tad bit more responsible than they were. These are all GREAT things but they also cause me to be TRIED TRIED TRIED by the end of the day.

I hope you guys are having a wonderful school year also!

Top 10 Award

I'm a tad bit late posting about this topic but I must thank a couple of my fellow teacher bloggers Jess from Rambling about Reading and Chistine from Hopping into First Grade for awarding me with the Top 10 Blog Award. A year ago when I started this blog I never thought I would have people reading about the things going on in my classroom. Heck I never thought people would be interested in ME at all. Lucky for me I was wrong! But more than anything I'm so grateful to have all of your wonderful blogs to read everyday and to keep me encouraged.

What I Wore Wednesday-Teacher Edition

A couple weeks ago a really good friend of mine asked me to start blogging about what I wear to work. I didn't really understand why that was important. After she explained to me that she is a member of a fashion board (she is a merchandise major) and the one thing that always comes up from non members is "What should a teacher wear to work?" So I've decided that I'm going to do her a BIG favor and blog every Wednesday on what I wore to work. Please know that the outfit may not be from Wednesday every week but hey I wore it to work so that's all that matters. If you want to join in on this I'll post a linky tool next week.

Here is my outfit of the week

This dress was super comfortable and the cardigan was the pop of color I needed.

Hey all!!! These last two weeks have been ALL KIND OF CRAZY! I did three weeks of professional development spent some of those days in my classroom. I've showed you some of the in progress pictures but the following is the finished product. I think out of the five years I've been teaching this is my FAVORITE classroom set up EVER! I owe most of that to your guys.

So that is my classroom for the 2011-2012 school year! My students really have been enjoying everything about the room. I'm sure there is something I missed but I'll take a picture of anything else I think you guys should see.
I want to share my first day of school tonight but I see this post is already to LONG so I'm going to make a posting. Be on the look out for a review of my first week back at school.
