Confessional Friday: Back to School

Monday saw me back to school.  And I say school because I had to attend a full week of professional development.  And in celebration of the beginning of a new school year I’m dedicating this weeks “Confessional Friday”  with the lovely Caroline to the end of summer and the beginning of a brand me year!

So here we go!

I confess that the summer went by way too fast but I’m glad it’s over.  It’s seriously like I blinked and I was back at school. Today is the first time I’ll be seeing my classroom, which is pretty exciting!  I can’t wait to share it with y’all!  But this was a very transitional summer and I’m excited to get everything in order here in Houston.

I confess my room looks like I am a heroin/crack addict.  I have zero furniture in my room.  Everything is still in bags/boxes and I’m currently sleeping on a twin mattress on the floor with shark sheets.

I confess I’ve kinda sucked at this whole blogging thing since I got to Houston.  I’ve been at work from around 7am till 5pm everyday and then we’ve been running around trying to get the house together.  So I’ve work out a schedule that I think will work.  I’ve decided to post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

I confess teachers make the worst students.  My new district is big on professional development which is fantastic when it’s brand new information, but not so much when I’ve heard the information about 20 times already.

I confess I went to a teacher supply store did some damage.  I would done more, but I haven’t had a paycheck in two months.  thank god that changes at the end of the month.

I confess I’m excited to meet my new 8th graders and get this party started.  By party I mean all the great lessons my new team shared with me during our planning day on Tuesday.

I confess I’m pretty stinkin happy with the way this new chapter in the book called “Life” has started. Lets just hope the rest of the chapters are just as good.

(Yes I realize I’m taking a selfie and driving in this picture but I just really like it! Totally don’t do this often. Promise! 🙂 )

Hope y’all had a great week and even better weekend!

It’s furniture shopping for me this weekend! 🙂 Quick note…..I cannot WAIT to show y’all my room and the rest of the house when its all done!

  1. Congrats on a new school year!!! I taught in Houston for a while with Teach for America and it was amazing. LOVE that city and I got a little sentimental reading this 🙂 Also, no worried on the bedroom furniture. I lived without a couch for like 6 months until my mom came to visit, took my credit card, and ordered a couch…. I like the bare & empty look, hahah
