The Monthly Top Ten! August 2015

I am so excited for the second month of the Monthly Top Ten! I can't believe there is only 5 days until I go back for training! I am a little nervous, because we still can't get into our classrooms, eek! but, I know it will all work out... I'm starting to recruit people (man, it seems like most of my friends are teachers!) that aren't teachers and aren't stressing over their own classrooms to help me with the last minute list that I know is going to be crazy long!

So, in order to start calming myself down, and refocusing on what is really important (the kids!) I am dedicating this Monthly Top Ten to the Ten best things about going back to school and the new school year!

Use this image to tell us all why you enjoy going back to school ... it can be in order (mine is) or it can be out of order. It can be for you as a teacher, a mother, a student, etc. It's just a way for us to get to know each other a little better and remind ourselves that this craziness that we go through results in something fantastic!

Here are my Top Ten Best Things about the Start of the School Year

1. I get a fresh start every year, and that's pretty cool! I can learn from my mistakes, try new things, and be a better teacher because I get a new "batch" of kids every year. Things are always different, and every group is a new adventure.

2. I am so excited to meet all of my new kiddos this year! I am moving schools and just sent out a test email ... so it's starting to get real! 

3. I am excited to be a part of a really amazing school this year and learn from new team mates, colleagues and friends.


5. Self Explanatory... school supplies, swoooooon!

6. It's the best excuse to go shopping, ever!

7. See above statement

8. I mean, I can't complain about earning more money can I?

9. This may seem hypocritical, but I am actually looking forward to having a reason to wake up and get my butt in gear every morning. Starting Monday, I'm saying good bye to late nights and sleeping in for the summer.

10. Learning new things is fun and exciting, and now that school starts, I get to put them all into practice.

  4. I had fun with this and I was wondering if you were going to do this linky any more. It was just one month, but I enjoyed it. Will it return??
