Do you luv school?

Sooooo . . . I luv school!  Didn't want to go to sleep last night 'cause that would winter break was over.  Didn't want to get up at 6am 'cause that meant I was off to school.  Didn't want to reorganize my room 'cause they waxed the floors over break and left everything awry.  But guess what?????  Once the kids arrived I realized, I LUV SCHOOL!

1st day back after Christmas break

I don't wanna go to school!  I don't wanna go to school!   2 more days of vacation and although I am lamenting the loss of my freedom, I know I'll be great when I see my students.  First day back will be a fun review of P.R.I.D.E. (our school-wide discipline program) as well as a review of world religions!  If you want a first-day-back that's educational but fun, check out these cool programs!
