More goodies for class!

DH was kind enough to pick up a whiteboard for me so I don't have to erase mine and re-write several times each class. It will really save me some prep time each and every day.

The room is starting to come together with a few little touches. I plan to bring my orchids and remaining bins this week. The students had a great time playing medical terminology JEOPARDY this week. I'm thrilled with their progress in just 3 days! MY STUDENTS REALLY ROCK!!!!

Looking forward to an awesome school year.

Deal of the Week

Target had a beautiful selection of brightly colored plain notecards with envelopes. It has 100 of each, I believe. I had a $3 off coupon, making the final cost under $13. They will make terrific welcome back to school notes for my classes.
Happy Back to School Shopping!


Getting Organized!

 These fabulous containers were made by Sterilite. I always plan to spruce up the sewing room but they seem to be urgently needed for classroom organization. I plan to take 4-5 extra deep and 3-4 of this size to start the year off.  I'll be hauling my new school supplies to class in a few and when they're emptied, they tuck nicely away. Each class will have a designated basket to make collecting and returning work a bit easier. I also have the cutest miniature pails from Target (a score at the $1 aisle) for spare pencils, pens, paperclips, etc. I ordered my planner today but it may take a while to get here----'Tis the Season.


Great Expectations!

As you may have noticed, posts have been few and far between the past couple years. Thanks for bearing with me! We've had some major life changes going on. I'm thrilled to let you know that I will be teaching this school year! My students are taking enough dual credits to finish high school with an Associates Degree!! Can you imagine? What a phenomenal opportunity! I'm clapping my hands and happy dancing to be included in this incredible program. I cannot wait to set my high school classroom up and meet my new students!! Oh my word,  I have been obsessing about color schemes, planners, baskets, fabrics (of course!) and supplies since I found out yesterday afternoon----Pinterest is fueling the fire. 

Thank you!
