November Currently

Fashionably late is what I'm calling this...but I couldn't miss a Currently with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade! 

I love this song and can't get enough of it! I wasn't a huge fan of her first song, but this one is awesome!

*Disclaimer*: I am a summer girl. I like it hot. I'd like to wear flip flops year round. However, I have to admit that the cooler temps are pretty nice once in a while. It isn't cold here yet so I'm still happy. Here in NM, we get 50 Shades of Brown during the winter and it is just depressing!

I'm ready. Right? What do I have to worry about? I'm a great teacher, gosh darn it! So why am I worrying? Oh yeah. It's that kid. The one who knows how to throw a wrench into the best lesson? You know what I'm talking about....

Conferences are coming in 3 weeks. I dread writing report cards and my district has changed them YET AGAIN this year. I just wish there was a magic app that could automatically enter my grade book scores onto the report card. How hard could that be????

We haven't had one day since the beginning of October that the entire family was healthy. My oldest is still recovering from pneumonia and a nasty cough and now the hubs is sick, which is actually worse than the kids being sick. Sigh.

Ha! I am in the middle of Allegiant, but I haven't read in a few weeks. I'd like to read, but there are more pressing things to do like watching Sons of Anarchy, Scandal, and my new favorites, Red Band Society and Scorpion. I really do love to read but my worn out brain just craves some down time. I read like a mad woman during breaks to make up for my lack of school year reading. Unless you count reading student work...which I think you should.


  1. Good luck during your observation tomorrow!!!! I hope that student is absent ;) but even if he isn't, kids somehow know to act good when someone else is watching!! Plus, it does look good if you get a chance to show up your classroom behavior management plans!

  2. You're not late– I posted AFTER you :) I hear ya on the changes to the report card. Ours are never the same two years in a row, and we already know about NEXT year's. sigh. I'm gonna post on a conference idea or two on Friday. Maybe it will help you do yours. And the only time I read for pleasure during the school year is ten minutes before I turn out the light. It distracts me from the day and I sleep better. And I do slowly get through books! I figure I deserve ten minutes a day. Nice to meet you! See you around. Kathleen Kidpeople Classroom

  3. I found you through the Currently link up. Your blog is lovely!
    Good luck finding the report card fairy, if you do give her my number ;)


  4. Hope your observation went well. Mine is tomorrow!!!!!!!!
