Blah, blah, blah!!!

Well, it's only Thursday and I hate to sound so bah-humbug, but I am so thrilled this morning is  over! I know, don't wish your life away; however, I had to go for a colonoscopy this morning and let me tell you, if you have never had is an experience! I am glad to report that everything checked out great! Whew, just glad it is over. 

On Monday and Tuesday I went to county meetings about implementing Common Core in my classroom this upcoming year. After the two days of training, I left feeling overwhelmed, nervous, and excited all in one! I am really super stoked about putting these wonderful programs in place in about a month-what-holy cow-yes, I have a month until my workdays begin and I start back to school! I am such a nerd because I love getting my classroom ready and meeting my new students and families I will get to work with during the year.....SUPER BIG TEACHER NERD HERE!

 I do have to share that at the meeting, I met a fellow blogger that teaches in my county! I was so excited when she came up and said are you Kelly Brown with a blog? I was like, yes-she was like I'm Elisabeth from Twins, Teaching and Tacos! I thought that was so neat!  Elisabeth was one of the presenters and she did such a great job sharing her enthusiasm and knowledge about how she has implemented Common Core and the Investigations Math program into her classroom. She is really a wealth of knowledge! 

One more thing, I have got some neat things ready for a giveaway on my blog. If you would like to help by donating an item, please email me at and let me know. I feel bad asking because I don't have a TpT store to help with other giveaways....I don't think there is anything left for me to create! You guys have it all covered! 

If you are still reading.......I did find some giveaways to share with you all! Be sure to check them out!
