August Currently!

I can't believe it is August and that school is just around the corner.  I know many of you have already started school and I feel for you I really do.  Please feel for me when I am still working into mid June and you have already been on summer vacation for three weeks!

I am linking up with the fabulous Farley for her monthly currently. Just click on the button above and check out what other teachers are "currently" doing.

My Teacher Totes


Today I am linking up with the amazing Jen at Teacher by the Beach for her 

My Teacher Totes Linky!

I love new things.  I especially love shopping for new school supplies.  Each year that has meant a new school tote.  That was until this year. I have no need to buy a new tote because last year I finally found the perfect tote.  It is stylish and not too flashy and it is big enough to carry everything I need.

Here it is...

This is the Vera by Vera Bradley.  I love it!  I am so happy that she finally made her bags in solid colors.  I am not a huge fan of floral patterns.  It has six pockets to store everything from pens and pencils to an umbrella and lint roller. There are even two pockets on the outside.  I have room to bring everything I need to and from school, including my laptop.
Look how much space there is inside!

 I loved the bag so much I decided I needed a new bag for the gym.  So I purchased the smaller tote.  You can see the size difference below. I know it is floral, but Vera didn't sell the smaller totes in solids until recently.

School Year Goals 2014 - 2015

Back to School GoalsI am linking up with Jess from I {Heart} Recess for her Back to School Goals for 2014-2015.

I didn't link up last year so I don't have much to reflect upon.  However, I do remember telling myself that I would blog at least once a month last year and that didn't happen.  I need to hold myself more accountable, maybe that should be one of my goals again.

January Currently

Hello Everyone!

I must be the world's worst blogger.  I always have good intentions and then life seems to get in the way.  How do all of you do it?  Do you sleep?  That being said...I have resolved to blog at least once per month for the rest of the school year. I know it doesn't sound like much but for some reason I can't seem to do it.  Well it is a new year so I am going to turn over a new leaf and put forth my best effort.  I am starting the year off with the amazing Farley and this month's currently.

Most of what I have written is self explanatory. There is one that needs a little more explanation.  Every Christmas morning growing up my family would crank Elvis' Blue Christmas on the stereo to wake up my little sister Holly. She was a sleeper. Even on Christmas morning the girl slept in.  The only sure way to get her out of bed was Elvis and to this day I smile every time I hear the song come on the radio during the holiday season.
Also does anyone have any suggestions about Student Teachers?  This is my first one and I am a little nervous.
