Found this book on spotlight at the library this morning. It includes MLK Jr, Obama and other courageous dreamers. How are you teaching about MLK next week? #believers #dreamers
And a three day weekend at that! Woohoo! Enjoy it my friends. #teacherswhoweekend

You guys! I absolutely love this new book from @mattdelapena. I preordered it and got it today and have already read it 3 times. --- What we need in our world right now is a little more love. It's our job as parents and educators to give our love unconditionally and for our kids to know that they are loved. Because that is what really, truly matters. 💜 Affiliate Link in profile @ourelementarylives http://amzn.to/2qPQaau #becauseyoullhavelove #allyouneedislove #loveisallyouneed #sharethelove
Ah, field trips. Anyone else do this? 🙋🏻 And I was missing 2 today so I recounted twice as much thinking I was wrong. Only teachers know just how exhausting field trips are. I was ready for a nap at 12:00 today.

Loving our adorable and easy bulletin board for the new year. After reading Squirrel's New Year Resolution my kids came up with 2 of there own. They then wrote them on this resource from Judy Wright It's Raining Resources. It's Free.

Anyone else read this book today? 🎉 I love this book and how it explains what a resolution is in kid friendly terms with adorable animal characters. What other New Years books do you like? Please share. 📚📚 #bookchat #bookintros #oelreads #sharetheloveofabook
Nothing says New Year like fresh new supplies. Gotta love new pencils, colored pencils and a fresh box of crayons. Anyone else get as excited to get a fresh start with supplies? What's your favorite to use? I love crayons. 🖍 #freshstart #newyear #newsupplies

2017 was a good one IG friends. I am so thankful to have this community of teachers that inspires me. Here's to an even better 2018. #teachertribe #2017bestnine
Can you help me out? I want to go into 2018 with a whole list of new books to read. Teaching books, self-care books, anything books… Give me what you got. #newyearsgoals #2018goals
Call me crazy, and I know I'm probably the last one, but I'm finally reading Wonder. Can't wait to finally get started. It was my goal to read over Thanksgiving break and that didn't happen so now it's my goal to finish before winter break is over. Wish me luck, although from what I've heard, I don't think I'll be able to put it down.
Oh man. Anyone else's house look like this? Seriously, it's going to take weeks to find places to put the new toys and clean this mess up. 🤦🏻♀️ #christmasmess
True story. Thanks @digitaldivideconquer for summing up how I feel right now. Let me just say, it's glorious!
Merry everything from my family to yours. May your holiday be filled with love, laughter and happiness.
