I feel so blessed that I got to model the new Fall/Winter 2017 + 2018 line of @mapleandoak ! Even though the @dixieandtwine confetti was in my hair for a while, it was a wonderful afternoon filled with laughter, joy, talented local people, and just enough prosecco.
I'm loving this idea from @techninjatodd! I can definitely see myself taking a spin on this for a brag wall in my classroom! If you haven't checked out his page, do yourself a favor and head there now!
The sweetest thing happened this week... My students saw the principal bringing some chairs into our room at the end of the day for an after school staff meeting. They got so excited that the teachers were meeting in our classroom that they helped the teachers carry chairs in, had me turn on the special EXPLORE sign lights, and were saying to the teachers, "We hope you enjoy our room!" One student even told one of the teachers, "Mrs. Collins never cleans up after us. We keep the room this clean ourselves." I love that they take ownership of this space, love it, and take care of it because they're proud of it. 💕 #iteachfirst#flexibleseating#woodland
How precious are Kindergarten self portraits? We read "The Colors of Us" by Karen Katz and students mixed their own paint color for their skin tone and then added unique details. 👩🏻🎨👨🏽🎨
It's been a long time since I've read a new-to-me book that I've been this excited about sharing with my students. Raw and real, I couldn't put it down. A special thank you to @sabavlach for gifting me a signed copy. 💛
Today 5 of my students volunteered to compete in a competition called #PitchIt
I am honored to be able to teach a group of amazing students. Any teacher could tell you....what we do is NOT about the money, but the lives we touch.
Listen to the first video.....I can't lie, that made me feel great knowing I just met this student 5weeks ago.
I'm so very proud of their hard work and dedication for showing up to Tarrant County Community College on a SATURDAY morning to do something that was out of their comfort zone. They didn't place today but they were already talking about competing again in the Spring!
I tell my students it's all about who you know. They made a few connections and so did I. It's always a reason why your at a certain place at a certain time. So always #FindYourPurpose#WhatsYourSuperPower 😎
