Hello January !

As I reflect on the past year I cannot believe that I have been lucky enough to work with autistic children for a year. It was difficult at times, but I am a better person and teacher because of the experience. I am so excited to start a new job as a reading teacher. I start Monday and I look forward to posting about it. 

Onto this month's Currently: 

When the DH and I were sick, we decided to binge watch Dexter.
I have loved my vacation time. It will be hard to work for 5 days when it's Monday!
I am ready to start my new job, but I am going to miss all my free time.
I have not been show shopping since July and this shoe loving girl really would like to buy a new pair.
I REALLY need to get back into eating better.. and get back to the gym. I was sick for a couple weeks in December, so I have not been to the gym in three weeks. It does not help that all the delicious holiday food is so bad for you!
YES - I plan to work hard at my new job, so the kidos can become better readers and learn to love reading.
MAYBE - I was run/walking in the fall. I am a spinning girl, but I'd love to be a runner, too.
WISH - I have a few ideas/stories on post it notes - I wish I could publish them.

Hope everyone is enjoying their last days of free time before it's back to work!

Happy Reading! 


  1. Congratulations on your new job!!! How exciting to start something new in 2015! Definitely sounds like a reason to treat yourself to some new shoes!!
    Enjoy the rest of your break!

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog! Happy New Year. I really need sneakers, but I'd rather have some new cute black shoes!

  2. I can totally relate to eating too much holiday food! Why must bad food taste so good?! Good luck next week! I'm sure you'll love your new job teaching reading! :)

    First Grade STARS

    1. Thanks for the well wishes. I am a little nervous about my first day. It has been 2 years since I was in charge of my own room. I am glad it will be small groups. I am mostly nervous of the group of 5th graders I have. The last time I taught a class of 5th graders I was 15 years ago! I love reading, so I hope they see that and also will love it!

  3. Found your blog through the CURRENTLY linky :) Congrats on the new position. What grade will you teach? Dexter is such a good show. We watched The Missing during break. It's only 10 episodes!

    1. Thanks! I am going to teach 4th and 5th grade reading intervention. I taught 4th grade for 5 years and loved it! I have never heard of The Missing. Sounds scary.
