I left my sweetie, well the biggest sweetie at home alone today while I went to the school to continue working on my classroom. I have decided that I should not have become a pinterest addict because seeing all those beautiful classrooms makes me want to do that too... Only the wallet wont allow me! The beautimouseness (is that a word..i think not!) is stemming from the ClutterFreeClassroom website. Her stuff is so beautiful and personalized and that is all things good for my OCD! Ive been drooling over her stuff for awhile now, and went out and bought a bunch of matching bins and things. Now I just have to organize and label everything. I want my classroom to look like that! So my TPT sales and Teacher's Notebook sales need to spike. I want some money for all that cool stuff! I love it!

As I sit here flipping through last year's lesson plan book, I still wonder how I was able to bring my kiddoes so far in such a short period of time. I will admit, some of my "friends" had some serious behavior and home issues last year. It is very sad to see a kid constantly in trouble when there isn't much you can do about it. We had office referrals, ISS sessions, identification sessions while watching bus surveillance videos, the whole nine yards. It was very disheartening to try an get some of them to see the value in their education, instead of the thrill they get from negative attention. My goal for this year, is to refrain from giving negative attention as much as possible
