Welcome to my teaching blog! I am an SEI teacher for kindergarten and 1st grade students, and this is my 3rd year of teaching in my own classroom. Every day is a new adventure, and there's never a dull moment! Please consider following my blog. :)

Today was crazy, busy, hectic, and all.over.the. place.  I'm so glad that I will be going to bed soon and starting a new day tomorrow.  I have a parent conference in the morning, but other than that, hopefully no informal observations throw my day off! :/

Highlights/Low-lights today:
  • My early morning meeting today was not fun, and I feel judged and very under the microscope.  blehhhhh
  • I raised my voice so much today at my kids, and I feel so badly about it!  If no one comes to observe me before 2:30 tomorrow, they are getting extra playtime because they deserve it!  I think they are some of the hardest working kids in school...
  • I am disappointed in my 1st graders' quarterly math assessments, and it kills me that they didn't do better...:(
  • My internet was not working at school today, and it totally threw off my day because I couldn't PRINT anything from my computer; I couldn't CHECK MY EMAIL; I couldn't use my GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE for clipart; and I couldn't PLAY ANY ALPHABET OR COUNTING VIDEOS for my kids.  UGHHHHH-- I hope it works tomorrow.  I just sent my 5th complaint to IT of the year...they probably hate me!
  • I forgot my cell today at home-- FML.
  • I had a new hire meeting after school today, and it was actually very informative and not a bother to go to. 

Biggest concerns:
  • I hope I remember my parent conference tomorrow morning!
  • Liaison and technicalities for my room and for my students
  • Thanksgiving projects for my kids
  • Why did my 1st graders do so poorly?
