Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites!

It was back to school week here in the great state of Texas, so I'm going to share my favorite parts of my job.

1. I see students in grades 1-5 every day for an hour each. This means, I get to work with all different ages/abilities/interests. It's never boring.

2. I get to read great books to kids. Like the one we're reading this week. If you haven't read it or the first book, The Day the Crayons Quit, pick them up NOW. You won't regret it. 

3. We have Sonic ice in the teacher's lounge. It's the little things that make life great.

4. This week I was told I'm the best librarian ever. Sure, I'm the only librarian the kid has ever had, but I'll take it. A first grader wouldn't lie to me, would she?

Have a great week. I hope you love your job too!

Friday Favorites!

School started back Monday, so I'm now officially VERY aware of what day it is. :)

1. I got a Fitbit a month or so ago. And I learned quickly how lazy I have been this summer. The goal is 10,000 steps a day, and I'll be honest. There were a couple days I didn't hit 2,000 steps. Now that I'm back at work, it's much closer to 10,000. I love it helping me stay focused on moving more. 
2. I bought these lip balms in Talkeetna, Alaska, which was an amazing little village. They are locally made and fantastic. I just need to go back to Alaska to get more! 

3. Meet the Teacher Night: This is my 14th year in education, and I still love Meet the Teacher. There's just a hopeful excitement in the air, the promise of what could happen. I love it, and I hope it never gets old.

I would write more, but I'm tired. 
Until next week.
