School started a few weeks ago and I'm back to being at work for 10 hours a day and continuing to work until midnight after dinner. I would LOVE to meet a teacher who goes in a 7:30 and leaves at 3:30 with NO work to do at home. I think I'm a good organizer, I make a daily to do list and TRY to manage my time. Yet, at this time each year it sounds like the same story. Since my parents have our puppies for the next two weeks, it's allowed me to stay late without feeling guilty or having to be home to let them out (more on the pups later this week). As long as I'm home and got in a workout by the time D gets home, I'm good. I HOPE these late days wont last much longer. With that said, I've decided to give you a sneak peak into my home away from home, my classroom. My classroom theme this year is sports. I love the teamwork aspect of using this theme and I can always find great sports decor, which makes things a lot easier. I've got a cute group of kids this year and I love going to work each day. I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
Many of you are visiting from Pinterest. Thanks for stopping by! I've noticed a lot of repins for the Welcome to Third Grade bag. So, below you will find the cute little saying that I taped to the bags. Enjoy!
