Best summer reads for teachers - TOP five!

Is that a broccoli book or a Twinkie book you are reading?  Are you wondering what I am asking? If you follow this blog you may know that I have two kinds of books I like to read…  I prefer broccoli books over Twinkie ones usually. So what is all this broccoli and Twinkie talk?  Here’s my definitions: A Broccoli book is a book you read to gain new knowledge or to learn something from; like, a teaching theory book, a self-help book, or a parenting book. These books are good for your brain, like broccoli is good for your body. The Twinkie book is a book that is a story you read for...

Over 30 Packets. 100's of files on a DVD-ROM for Preschool and Kindergarten Thematic Teaching

It took me over two years to write all this curriculum and it is finally ALL done.  I have been selling the packets as I create them and getting super positive feedback about each one from you all.  I figured I would combine all the preschool and kindergarten packets onto a DVD-ROM for those who want all of the curriculum I created for a very low price compared to what it would cost you if you purchased each packet individually (which you can still do).  If you purchase the DVD you will be saving over $140.00.  If you add up the prices of each item you will find that if you purchased each...

Water bottle vodka gift

I found the cutest water bottles at Five and Below!  Actually, I was given one as a gift and loved it so much that when I saw how inexpensive they were, I came up with an idea!!!   I loved them so much I bought a bunch of them to give out to some of my girls!  I figured it would be a nice summer treat!  I knew I would add various flavored water packs.  I also wanted a little tag to attach, so I began by writing a little ditty and creating a graphic.  As I was writing and thinking of how great summers with kids could be, I started thinking about the days in the summer when I wanted to run...

Top Ten Teaching Preschool

Taught my last day of preschool today! Two years of fun on Fridays – done! It was like planning a party every week. Plus I got to work with a great group of teachers! Packed up my belongings today and felt a little sad; but also happy to be moving towards entering Elementary teaching again. These two years in preschool taught me a lot… so much so that I thought it might be appropriate to write a list. Here’s my top ten list of what I learned from teaching preschool. 10. Teaching preschool is a workout. I trained for a half marathon this year and I seriously counted teaching preschool...

Pittsburgh Half Marath 2014 Race Report

Phew!  Checking a Half Marathon off my bucket list!  On Sunday I ran the Pittsburgh Half Marathon and became a RUNNER of Steel.  I am adding to that title - With a Titanium Ankle, since I have one of those two and really couldn’t imagine after my break I would ever complete both a Sprint Tri and a Half Marathon!  So if you had ORIF surgery, like me (about 1 year and 8 months ago)…  you can move on to a healthy active life!  Very active for that matter.  Be hopeful!  Just look at that bling!  Isn’t it the coolest!  I am so proud to own it!  I originally decided to...
