Pretty much in LOVE with this new table set I bought for my classroom. The rest of the room looks like a tornado hit but this little corner has all my happiness!
EDITED TO ADD: I got this gem at Ralph's (which, I believe is Kroger). All their patio furniture is on clearance so it was $84 for the three pieces!

How do you teach your students to enjoy reading without judging the book by its cover? I wrapped mine in construction paper with mini descriptions on them. They loved it-- it was like unwrapping Christmas gifts in August! #teachersofig #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #iteachtoo #middleschoolenglish #highschoolenglish #iteachela #iteachenglish #iteachtoo #teacher

My favorite display for outside of the classroom! πŸ’• It stayed up all year and served as a perfect reminder as we walked through the door! ✏️ [freebie from @miss_fairclough_ ❀️]#backtoschool

Okay y'all! As promised here is some of the progress I made today! I cleaned out a lot of my cabinets & shelves... so I didn't get to decorate or set up as much as I wanted to! It's slowly coming together ! β˜ΊοΈπŸŒˆπŸ’“ #iteach2nd #iteachtoo #teachersofig #teachersofinsta #teachersofinstagram #happyclassroom #elementaryteachers #teacherfriends #teachersfollowteachers #teachergram #teachertribe

Thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions for the bulletin board! I compromised between the burnt orange and mint/turquoise! "The bistro" is almost complete! #teacher #teacherlife #teachersofig #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #coffeeshopclassroom #fixerupperclassroom #flexibleseating #tptcheckoutmyclassroom #classroomdecor #englishteacher #elateacher #iteachhighschool

I don't know about you all, but getting a new student after school has started is such a pain in the booty! I've grown accustomed to receiving a new student one week, one month, half way though the year... or even during the last month of school! Not to mention I always find out with little notice, sometimes being the day before they arrive πŸ™„ Sooo I always make sure to prep a couple of these "New Student Starter Kits" before school starts. It makes it a whole lot easier when getting assigned a new student after the start of the school year! #iteachtoo #iteachsecond #secondgrade #igteachers #teachersofig #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teacherhacks #teachingtips #teachingtools

That is what we call touchscreen experience without a tablet! After attaching a zip bag to a cardboard with printed alphabet I added shampoo and letter-shaped buttons inside it. Now Max had to push letters to match them with printed alphabet, or just make some words

With a smaller desk I needed somewhere to place my computer. This adjustable standing desk is exactly what I needed πŸ™ŒπŸΌ (Side note: don't judge the mess that is my classroom) Link in my bio! πŸ‘‰πŸΌ #teachersloveamazon #amazonfinds


Growing up, my parents never complimented me or any of my siblings publicly. They only did so privately and still continue to do so today. Even at my Master's Graduation, where they were able to walk across the stage with me, they just had the BIGGEST smiles but didn't say much. I once asked my mom about this, and she said that dad and her simply wanted to avoid putting us on pedestals and making us feel pressured in any way to succeed. They wanted us to want that for ourselves and not because they wanted it for us. They also wanted us to learn to be humble in our success while also take our failures and setbacks in strides. Furthermore, they just wanted is to have humility, compassion for others, and work hard in everything we do. For my mom who never got to go to school and learned to read mostly on her own and my dad who was pulled out of school at 6th grade, they are truly are my heroes. As a kid, I watched my dad rarely taking days off from work unless it was one of us graduating or receiving awards at schools. I witnessed my parents worked tirelessly and struggled so much to support our family. This quote basically sums up what they have instilled upon me, and I am so grateful for that.

Search #freshsqueezedfriday to find some deals on some great resources! I like to use this at the beginning of the year as well as throughout the year for kiddos who need a little extra practice during guided math. πŸ‹#iteachk

Feeling all the feelings as back to school is just a week and a half away! How lucky I am to get to do something that brings me so much joy and happiness! How lucky I am to be this passionate about my job! πŸ’› #teacherswhoinspire

Happy Friday! ✨

I finished York! πŸŒƒ I *liked* it but didn't β™₯️ love β™₯️ it. The writing was excellent, but I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop - the message to be made clear, the plot twist ... something. Instead it felt like it was supposed to be deeper than it was. Definitely a page turner - I finished it in a few days - and the end made me curious for the next book in the series, but I didn't feel extraordinarily connected to any of the characters. Usually I have to process a book - it takes me a day or two to start a new book. This one wasn't that way - I'm ready to move on. Bummer! πŸ“š

Thanks @ithappenedin3rd for sharing! I am always telling my students that if they want to be better readers they have to read! Period! .

Made my photo booth frame tonight after my own little ones went to bed. I love how it turned out using @schoolgirlstyle Monster theme pack! 😍 I picked up the frame from @michaelsstores and used my Cricut to print and cut the rest. πŸ“Έ @teaching_artofpossibility

Time for the next load! #movingonin

I'm in love with this key cover for my #macbookpro! It's super easy to type on, and looking at these colors makes me happy! 😁 Thanks, @rachbv fortelling me about these. πŸ“Έ @lightbulbsandlaughter

Today marks #6monthssincewomensmarch when my fiancé, teacher bff, and I flew to Washington D.C. It was one of the most empowering and inspiring experiences of my life. Since that day, I've become a better activist and critical thinker. We all have so much more work and learning to do, but I'm proud to be part of this movement! ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏼

My #FollowFriday inspiration is totally @teachingwithheart ! I'm borrowing her idea of creative a Summer Bucket List with the kids! Great last day of term activity! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ€“πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

These notes were taken during my very first (and currently only) observation from last semester! During my student teaching internship, I have to be formally observed multiple times. In order to help ease my nervousness, I asked my placement director to come in and watch one of my lessons! I am so thrilled with all of the feedback- especially the one about classroom management! πŸ’•
