2014 School Year has Ended

Last Thursday was the last day of the school year. This is the first time in my 21 years of teaching that I had to miss the last days of school out of personal necessity. In my absence the end of the year went smoothly and I appreciated the gifts I got even more. 
I find that some of the most meaningful end of year gifts are the simplest.

This was a jar of M & M with an inspirational teacher poem of thanks.
It ended by stating,
"You're a magnificent and marvelous teacher.
Thank you for being my M & M"

End of Week News

Well, it's been an eventful week in my teaching world. The Etiwanda Fire started near my school.
We are used to high winds, but in this event such strong winds did not help the fire situation. Several schools in my district were evacuated the day the fire started, and the following day schools were closed.
By the end of the week all was back to normal luckily. My classroom smells smoky and we are on indoor recess, but no damages occurred due to the fire.


My school year is winding down. Only about 2 more weeks left, but they are jam packed with our 3rd grade "I Need a Vacation" performance, Open House, and spelling bee.

As your school year nears close, be sure to take advantage of Teacher's Pay Teachers Appreciation Sale May 6th and 7th.  My store will be on sale, so stock up for next year!
