Currently September!

I am one TIRED teacher!
School started for us on Aug. 26...and what a week it was! However, I have a class full of super sweet kindergarteners and I couldn't be happier!
I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's currently.
Here's my currently:
1. I've been wanting to see the movie version of "Les Miserables" for a while. It's on HBO for the next few days, so I'm glad I was able to see it. I had NO idea the actors did all of their singing LIVE while filming. Crazy talented group of actors/actresses!
2. Labor Day! Granted we've only been in  school a week, this day was still much needed. Rest shall occur today.
3. One of my goals for this school year was to plan and prep before I left for the weekend on Friday's, even if it meant staying late a few days during the week. I would rather enjoy my weekend to the fullest, than work on lesson plans and activities.
4. & 5. I am wanting and needing absolutely NOTHING! I am truly in a happy place.

**Edit: I do want something. I want our reg. ed kindergarten class numbers to go up. Yes, you read right..UP. We are currently sitting at 16-18 students per class (5 classes). However, our first grade team is sitting at 24-26. If our numbers stay low, we'll lose a kinder teacher and have to split their class. I DO NOT WANT TO LOSE A TEAMMATE!!!!! And while I'm on my soapbox, our first grade team has been whining that they're sitting at 24+ kids since the 2nd day of school. Guess what?!? Our kindergarten team sat at those numbers for over 9 weeks last year. We didn't get relief until a week before THANKSGIVING! We just did what we had to do and made it work until help could arrive. I really want to tell our first grade team to suck it up and deal with it...but that would be rude. :-/ That group of students is just extremely large and they will continue to be if they stay at our school until 4th grade.
Stepping off my soapbox now**

Love myself: I want to be able to leave work at work this year. I did an ok job of it last year, but when I decided to take on the role as Co-Lead for my team, the work just seemed to pile on. I expected that much. So, I'm going to make sure I prep and plan for the upcoming week ahead of time so that I can enjoy my weekends and rest.
I did a really good job during the year with eating healthy and exercising. Then, Summer happened. I just want to get back into the groove of exercising regularly and eating right.

Well, that's it for my currently! How about you?
Happy Blogging!


  1. Hey I'm coming over from Farley's blog. I am extremely happy that we have today off as well! Last week was very long. I like your goal to get everything planned and prepped before you go home on the weekends! That's something I need to work towards. Good Luck on getting back into the groove of exercising and eating healthy!

  3. I think leaving work at work on Friday is a great goal-I usually end up not even taking the work out of my car over the weekend anyway! :) I couldn't watch Les Mis in the theaters because I know all the songs and was afraid I'd sing along-kinda wish I had HBO now.


  4. I love finding new Kinder blogs since my son just started Kindergarten this year!!! I hope you enjoyed your day off!!! I'm your newest follower:)
