Meet "Poo-Poo Teacher"

There are days in teaching that I refer to myself as "poo-poo teacher". I know how mature of me right? I just don't feel on my A-game or that I've done enough to reach out to the kids. If you haven't noticed I'm very hard on myself and part of the problem is, is that I'm going to bed VERY late. Not because I'm staying up watching television or doing random nothingness, I'm planning for the next day. Thinking how I'm going to get my kids motivated. Some think I'm crazy but I truly *love* what I do. And when I get passionate about something, watch out! I  mean, I seriously have the best job EVER! My kids love me (darn I forgot to take a pic of the adjectives they used to describe me, SO CUTE). If anyone ever needs an ego boost, come visit first grade.  HAHA!

Anyway going back to my tiredness, see exhibit A: Here below you see my coffee table filled with only school stuff. Grading that I need to catch up on, updating my teaching portfolio and more things to plan. By the way, isn't my coffee table lovely. I told prince charming I would post about it and being the kind and humble person he is, he just shook his head in disapproval. Well of course I didn't listen and I posted a picture anyway. He made me this beautiful table as my Christmas present since I just moved into my apt. in December and didn't have much furniture. It's really detailed and I just <3 him all the more for it.  Best guy hands down! :)  
 Exhibit B: This has nothing to do with teaching at all. I went to IKEA on Saturday with charming and I picked up this adorable little lamp. Okay if there's one thing you need to know about me, it's that I love the color magenta. Do you see my headphones, super magenta! And my Hello Kitty! Bookmark, (I'm totally not into her at all, I just love collecting bookmarks!)

Okay I think that's all I will post for this evening. I need to make an "er, ir, ur" sheet for tomorrow. A teacher's work is never done. Before I forget, I'll do my best to take pics of the kids' adjectives pics from tomorrow and the one they did for me.  Again, totally not my idea, (I <3 Pinterest!) Night!
