Misc. Blog Day - My Day, End of the Year Seating Chart, Get Acquainted Linky

It was such a nice day with my two girls and husband.  
We had no plans!  
I was allowed to sleep in while my husband made breakfast.  
Here is a picture from our time at the park.
Now it is back to school tomorrow, but we only have 18 more days.  
My students are excited because we moved our desks around on Friday.  
The special part is that the students had a bit of a say
in who they were going to sit next to.  
I have a tradition the last month of school.
Each student gives me a list:
4 people they want to sit by
3 people they don't want to sit by.
I guarantee them at least one person on their yes list
and everyone on their no list.
It's surprising how well behaved they have been since we switched.
Now for one last thing:  
Linky Questions
1. What made you decide to become a teacher?
I'm not sure. 
 It was just something I always pictured myself doing. 
 I remember my sister and I playing school and
 that is my first memory of knowing I wanted to be a teacher.
2. What has been your most rewarding experience as a teacher?
I don't know that I have just one.
I love when a student says, "Oh!  I get it." 
3. If you were not a teacher, what would you be?
Poor - Haha!  Get it?
I would have liked to be veteranarian.
How was your weekend?
Do you have any end of the year traditions?


  1. HA! I used to play school with my sister too. I never let her be the teacher though! (She is a nurse).
