Back to School / Thoughts and Opinions

School starts tomorrow (mostly)!

Tomorrow I go back to school! I am not complaining since it’s a Superintendent’s Conference Day, Kindergarten Orientation at the end of the day and then I have a 4-day weekend! But tomorrow really marks the end!

I feel like I have been juggling a million things this summer:

I joined Twitter just before the end of school. I LOVE Twitter chats and try to participate in 2-4 each week.

I learned about SeeSaw and became a SeeSaw Ambassador!

I became a Google junkie (went to a Google Summit and a Google Camp).

I started this blog slowly, but moving right along lately.

I taught summer school for six weeks.

I started and just about completed my Google Certification Educator Level 1 training (and will take the test this weekend possibly?).

I started updating and creating resources to post on Teachers Pay Teachers.

Oh yeah, and I am mom to 2 kids that I had to entertain each day!

Well, one of my endeavors was to join an eBook with the new faces of Teachers Pay Teachers and I was included! Please check out these awesome books and open yourself to a world of amazing resources! Also please follow the organizers of these books as a big thank you for all their hard work! You can download each book for free from the store of the person who put it all together!

I also entered a contest at the Google Camp (#FilltheRedCube) and I won! I am looking forward to my Red Cube of school supplies from McGraw-Hill Education (Take bets now on whether they put the iPad in I asked for…)

Though this (totally non-education moment) was the highlight of my day:

My daughters (5 and 3):

L- Mom, sometimes I think it’s a really great thing having a sister.

F- Like me!

L- Yeah (laughs)

F- Awww (hugs her big sis) I like to have you!

Then they both laugh and big hug while I cry! (They were screaming and fighting 5 minutes later, but it was a special moment!)
