Back to School Jitters...

Today marks the last official day of my summer vacation.  Albeit, my summer vacation was only 2 weeks, but this is the last day of my freedom.  I've spent it in my pajamas so far drinking coffee and watching past episodes of Bunheads.  Thank you Pioneer Woman for turning me on to this show.  Love it!  Anywho, I have nothing for Monday Made It.  I've slacked in that department to be honest, other than printing out the necessary items for back to school.  So, I'm linking up with A Turn to Learn for the Back to School Jitters linky.

  1. I need to remember to set boundaries for myself this year too! I'm already spending all my time working and year hasn't even started yet!


  2. I remember the testing nerves! It's amazing how much testing makes the teachers more nervous than the kids! I like your idea of taking time for yourself! I feel like I've stayed in teacher mode this summer by trying to prepare for my new class and teaching summer school. I'm nervous about my reading groups. K-2 special ed makes them an extra special challenge!


  3. I definitely agree with taking time for myself this year! I think all of us ignore that one far too often! As far as being back in a testing grade... eek! That's always stressful! Good luck, I'm sure you'll do fabulous and maintain that 100% stat!

  4. Eek, 100% passing IS a lot of pressure! What grade are you going to be teaching out of curiosity? I found your blog through the Jitters blog hop and I have nominated you for an award! When you get the chance, hop on over to my blog to link up with me, grab the award, and pass it on! :)

  5. Dude . . . testing grades always make my stomach flip a bit too. I am safe back down in first this year, but I remember the pressure that good old second added. YOU CAN DO IT :) Great post . . . thanks for sharing.

I Don't Have the Answers...

It's taken me all weekend to begin to process what happened in Parkland, Florida.  I put it aside and compartmentalized it until I...
