Almost Summer

How knows who reads this or even knows that exists. I don't think I really have anything interesting say. I am not witty or whimsical in my writing! Just straight to the point. I am learning a lot in my teaching career and surprised I am about to finish my second year. I am wondering if every school is as stressful as the one. Stress really does a number on ones body. I am SO excited for summer. What is on my to do list? Art classes, possible San Francisco, Visiting the Alamo, Reading the 30 books I have meant to over the school year. Playing with my puppy. I don't quite have this dog yet but I dream. I constantly dream about the puppy/dog that I will have during my summer vacation. Dreams about all the supplies, toys and trinkets I will buy. I scour the different websites advertising dogs/puppies. This is all I have for now. Is this a dull life? Maybe for you, but not me. = )

No longer a virgin blogger

Welcome to my blog. Like it says in my description I am fifth grade teacher who has been consumed by work. Summer is getting closer along with a wide amount of free time. One thing that I have started doing is taking art classes on Saturdays and joined a gym. Last Saturday was my first painting session. The teacher rotates around the room and guides each student through their independent projects. My project is oil painting. I have always enjoyed art. Growing up I took classes outside of school and at school. I look at some of my drawings from when I was in the fourth grade and I am amazed. I am worried that I lost the skill after all these years.

The school year has been very interesting and educational. This is my second year and it has been completely different than my first. Not necessarily bad but different. I have definitely gained lots of confidence in myself. I think I may of even enjoyed my students a little more! Though I think I was so stressed last year I didn't take the time to appreciate them.
