September Currently

September is here and I am so ready for all that it brings: cooler weather, Fall clothes, my birthday (it's almost here!), football, etc. Summer is my favorite season, but Fall comes in at a close second!
 
I am linking up with Farley for the September Currently post.
 
Listening: It's almost silent here and it is wonderful!
 
Loving: I am LOVING my new school! Love my co-workers, my administration, and my students.
 
Thinking: I'll be so glad when I feel more in a routine. It takes time!
 
Wanting: I could have put this for needing, but I am wanting/needing REST! For the past two night's, I've been unable to fall asleep before midnight. Eeeekkkk.
 
Needing: I really want to add a reading graffiti board in my room. If you aren't sure what this is, check out Donalyn Miller's book Reading in the Wild.
 
3 goals:
  1. Believe - This has been "my word" since the beginning of 2015. I knew there would be big changes coming up and I wanted to remind myself to BELIEVE that God had it all under control. He did and he does!
  2. Communicate well - I want to communicate well with parents and families. Our 5th grade Shutterfly share site (blog) has been WONDERFUL for this!
  3. Take care of myself - Over the past year I've lost around 40 pounds, exercised fairly regularly, and changed my eating habits. With the busyness of this season, I've slacked off and I need to get back on track fully.

  2. Amen to getting back on track. However, I have to be honest. I lost it over the summer. I am hoping once we get a routine going, I can get back on track to eating better.
    Good luck!

  4. I agree! Cannot wait for the first week to be over and routine to set in! I love the first week of getting to know my students, but I love routine as well. Although I love summer, I am also looking forward to fall time. I love the fall scents (pumpkin) and I am looking forward to wearing my leggings and new clothes.

    Found your blog through Currently! Would love for you to head over and check out my blog…

  5. I'm so glad you are happy in your new school! That positive culture makes such a difference!

    I really love fall too. Fall and Spring are my favorites, for different reasons of course. I love fall because of hoodies, jeans and flip flops! :)
