I've Got the B2S Blues.

Hey, everyone!

One week until teachers officially report back. Yikes!

And I just heard we don't have a reading specialist anymore. 
She's been moved back into a classroom teacher position.

It's crazy. Teachers work SO hard, and every time we make progress or get ahead, something is taken away from us! The fact that teachers are expected to do more and more with less and less is baffling to me. I'm sure most of you can relate to this in some way!

Hopefully, we have a high enough unit count so that someone can be hired after Sept. 30th. Not banking on it though, as my class list is sitting steady at nineteen.

Anyway, I've been crafting and organizing a lot of the stuff I've purchased over the summer! I would post a picture, but the pile in my living room is straight up embarrassing! Teachers are allowed back in the building [unpaid] this week, so my friend & I are going to go in Thursday for the day to get a little head start. 

I wish I was ambitious enough to go in every day this week, but I'm truly not in the mood. So much nonsense going on in my life right now. I actually can't wait until school and grad classes start so that I have something to focus on.

I'll be back Thursday with the winner[s] of my giveaway and "before" pictures of the classroom!

If you haven't entered, click here and get to it! I'm at 239 followers, and I said that if I get to 250 by the time I announce the winner [Thursday night], I'd pick a third winner!

Good luck to everyone who has started back!


  1. Man I wish I only had 19 kids in my class!!! So there's something to smile about :)

    My Life as a Third Grade Teacher

    1. Definitely! But for the last two years, my class always starts small & I get ALL of the students who transfer in throughout the year. But fingers crossed the list just stays small! =)

  2. I hope you are lucky enough to stay with the small class...that would be WONDERFUL for those students! I, on the other-hand, already have 30 on my 3rd grade class list, hoping there are no more transfers in ! Love your blog!
