Success Story!

I've missed blogging, but I've been so exhausted with everything going on right now. My lack of creativity is perfect timing for Ladybug's Link Party. I'll share a little success with you all :)
Many of you know one of my close friends and colleagues was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The students drew a picture representing what she means to them then I collaged it onto an apple for the front of the shirt. The t-shirts raised almost $3,000 for her. Our school community, even though small, is so supportive and loving. 

Came out cute right? 

I think overall this was a very successful year for me. It was my first year in second grade and I completely fell in love. What a PERFECT age level. I can't believe how much my students grew this year. It brings tears to me eyes thinking about it! I also began blogging this year and not only was I able to share my ideas but was inspired by so many amazing teachers. I started posting on Teachers pay Teachers and I am humbled by the amount of units and projects I've sold. I truly feel blessed that other teachers are inspired by ME. I've grown so much this year and I am so excited to take this growth and apply it to next year. I'm also going from 6 students to 18. Crazy! 

Field trip tomorrow.. wish me luck!

P.S. Don't forget you can follow and "like" me on Facebook!

It's great to feel like you have a techy support system out there :) We should have done this along time ago.
