Back To Work

Spring Break has officially ended.  While I will miss laying around in my PJ's until 1pm and sitting up until midnight, I am actually looking forward to getting back to work and seeing my students. I have 50 more days to make a difference.  I have 50 more days to teach these students that they are readers and writers.  I have 50 days to teach these students to believe in themselves.  And after 50 days, I will be sending these 20 first graders on to second grade. It will be such a bittersweet moment after spending two school years with most of them.  It's such an amazing feeling to be a teacher and know that I am impacting these kiddos.  And, in addition to teaching these 20 first graders, I will have a student teacher in my room for the next 7 weeks.  Not only am I looking forward to an extra adult in the room, but I am looking forward to sharing my teaching beliefs and helping her to become a successful teacher. 

Also, with spring break ending, I am even closer to three really important events:
1.  Going to DC with Mom to see my brother and the Cherry Blossom Festival
2.  My birthday month and birthday
3.  A weekend at home with my brother (the one in DC), my aunt and uncle (from Mississippi) and all of my family.  My brother, Mom and I will all be walking a 5K for Breast Cancer.  I had really wanted to run, but since my neck was sprained and strained in the accident, I haven't been able to read and train like I had planned.

With all the fun coming up, I really am not too sad to see this week end!

What are you looking forward to?
