Currenty, In Like a Lion

Sunday, March 1, 2015
There are a lot of great things about March.  One of them is that if it comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.  It has to! It's the rules!   Then, there's my birthday to think about...that's always pretty great.  The other great thing is Farley's Currently!


1.  Ooh Frank Underwood.  You are sneaky, devious, underhanded, and I love it!

2. My husband got me a mixer for Christmas- I'd been wanting one for a really long time.  My friend just showed me how to pull chicken! 

3. Tomorrow starts 15 straight days of testing for my students.  ELL's have two weeks of ACCESS testing, plus one week of PARCC.  I realized that I could choose to be wringing my hands about all the testing like so many others, or I could put on my game face and be a role model for my students.  If I am stressed, my stress will transfer to them. I can't be responsible for any more stress than my kids already have! So, I chose game face...at least on the outside!

4. I had a dream that I was getting a tan.  I woke up to snow and ice.  Dreams = shattered.

5. I deal with a lot of anxiety, and once I was told to just Stop, Breathe, Be throughout the day to lessen it.  I'm going to share that strategy with my kids this week, as we head into the most stressful weeks of the school year.

6. Our Spring Break is right after Easter, so I have a few weeks to go.  My husband and I will be heading to Vegas in July for the TPT Conference, and extending our vacation so we can travel to San Diego or Los Angeles.  We'll probably will stay close over this break so Miss Lacey doesn't spend too much time in the kennel!

Happy March!

  1. That's a long time to go until Spring Break! Hang in there! I am hoping that I will make it to the conference in Vegas too! I need to get it scheduled before the summer gets too busy. I hope you have a great week! : )

  2. I hope your students rock their tests!! That's so great to try to be mindful of not passing the stress to them but eek it's hard! I'm sure they'll do wonderfully! Hope to meet you at the conference! :)

  3. I know what you mean about testing! My kiddos have 3 days of ELA and 3 days of Math and 4 days of NYSESLAT (their ESL test)... an outsider would think it would be easy for a teacher - you get to just give a test how hard can it be... but honestly they are the most exhausting and stressful days of the year for me! I definitely put on the game face!

    Good luck and know we all feel your pain and we're pulling for ya!

  4. We have been watching a lot of House of Cards over here, too. Doug Stamper is a hot mess. March is definitely a stressful time with all the testing, and you even have an extra test. You can do it!
