Being an adult is fun! Green Day in San Diego. #humpday #greenday #sandiego #myhusbandrocks
Task cards + Butcher paper + Colored markers+ a timer = Engaging rotation stations. This is all I need to intro or wrap up a short story. Fun discussions about murder and mystery to intro Sorry, Wrong Number. You can't go wrong with stories about murder with 8th graders! #sorrywrongnumber #taskcards
My latest @goodwillintl find! Thrift stores are the go to place to stock your classroom library. 11 books for $16, and five of them are mint condition hardbacks. #thriftstorefinds #classroomlibrary #shamelessbookhoarder
My classroom may not be Pinterest perfect on Day 1, but it is definitely coming along. One of my favorite things about my room this year are the quotes I was able to put up on my ceiling tiles! @officialcricut is my new favorite toy! I printed the quotes off on vinyl and they are just like stickers. The best is that they are easy to remove and leave no marks, so my ceiling is safe.
Love how @studyallknight Growth Mindset poster adds some color and focus to my window!
Memes and music! This was such a fun back to school activity. The glimpses into my students' quirky little lives were so enjoyable, and their creativity and unique voices really stood out in this activity. I love assignments that guide students but don't direct them explicitly. These will also make for great Back to School Night displays (which for us is this Tuesday!)
I found this way too funny! Life with a house full of boys. 🙄#ihopeitlivesuptoitsname

Confession - I am slightly obsessed with designing and making Teacher Toolboxes. I love the pops of color in this watercolor theme. My husband also used the labels to create his own toolbox with his school colors and inserted the school mascot. Love it! Link in profile. #teachertoolbox #diy
