MAY?!?! Can you believe it??? I don't even know where the time has gone! Today I am linking with Jen from I (heart) Recess for her May GoalsLinky Party to share a little bit about my goals for this last month of school!
Personal: I kind of have a problem with cleaning...I actually hate it with a passion!! But I also like my house to look like it came out of a magazine! Soo ultimately I must tidy up a little bit every day to make my house look the way I want it to! Nobody likes to entertain with a disorganized house!
Health: Since January I've been on a huge running kick! I ran my first race- an 8K in April. It was such an exhilarating and unique experience that it has inspired me to keep running! It's a such a great adrenaline rush and a great way to stay motivated to keep my in shape!
Blogging: Wow, blogging has been such a great eye opener for me! Carrie and I started our blog just this past January and we are having just way too much fun improving and fine tuning our own teaching practices...We have been having such a fun time getting to know other bloggers and their ideas too! Can't wait to learn more about what others are doing this month as I blog hop around!
School: Stay Calm--it's the end of the year, and you know what that means!! TESTING, TESTING, and MORE TESTING! It's such a stressful time for students and teachers with all of the testing we have to do! I especially get a bit anxious around this time because we focus so much on data with our students who need intervention. I always try not to take it the data so personally if students regress or make little progress...I always have to remind myself that I have done and tried everything I could think of to help my students move forward with their learning! It's been a great fun year with these 2nd graders! They are filled with energy, a sense of humor, and hard work!
Fun: Home decorating!!! I secretly have a crazy obsession with home decorating!! I am the queen of shopping at TJ Maxx Homegoods..it's pretty much like my 2nd home! I can find pretty much anything and everything there that is exactly what I am looking for...often times it takes months to get just the right piece, but you can't beat their prices!! My husband and I will officially be celebrating our 1 year anniversary of being first time home owners in just a few days! I have been pretty much working on house projects all year to make it our own! Just a few more finishing touches and perhaps I can be content and enjoy living in our cute little home! :)
