Week of April 22nd - 26th, 2019

The hustle and bustle of spring..................

It is that time of year where we are loaded up with state testing, benchmarking, end of year events and daily standards on top of our own busy spring lives. Find time for yourself - mindful activities, exercise, bubble bath or something else you enjoy even more! Students will pick up on our quick pace and stress which will in turn cause them stress and make them rush as well.


Take time to enjoy your students, activities that may involve going outdoors, makerspace/stem activities and these new "cool" tech opportunities. Tomorrow's PD will be full of exciting "add ons" to your current Google Slides. I got a sneak preview and it makes me excited to try out for myself!!!


Let's ENJOY our last 25 days of school!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Life is a math equation. In order to gain the most, you have to know how to convert negatives into positives." -Anonymous-

I just love this quote! Education is always getting a bad rep...................let's take those negatives and make positives out of them because teaching IS our life's passion, our career, and more importantly the impact we make on our student's lives on a daily basis!
