Teachers on Periscope!!

Hi friends!

This is me on periscope!!  @MissTeacher101

Come find me and let's chat and hang!!! 

I definitely am enjoying Periscope and it's definitely the major buzz in the teacher community!!  It's so fun to see people in real time talking about their passion and love for teaching.  Teachers on Periscope are sharing tons of tips and tricks!!!  

Just from going on Periscope, I am finding so many amazing teachers to follow and be inspired by!!!  Loving it!!!

I personally am enjoying creating scopes (this is what the live video feeds are called)!  I've put up a couple in the last couple of days just about myself and trying to get to know some others.  I will be posting more in the near future on different areas of focus such as classroom set up (coming to you in August)!, classroom management, centers in my classroom, differentiation, etc.!  I hope to see you on my feed sometime soon!!  I am always looking to inspire and be inspired!!  

Hop over to the fabulous Sheila Jane Teaching blog to check link up with other #PeriscopeTeachers!!  


July Currently, Goals, and Twitter - Oh my!

Hi All!  Summer is in full Swing!!  The weather is hot, but amazing here in New York!  I truly hope that everyone reading this is enjoying a well-deserved summer!!  

Thought I would link up for Farley's July Currently!

I live in a cute little village where people can actually walk to get to places.  My apartment is pretty close to the street so I am enjoying the sounds of people enjoying some beautiful weather!

I am absolutely loving summer!  There is so much time to do everything!!  Summer is allowing me to be better at sticking to goals.  For example, working out goals, wedding planning goals, blogging goals, TpT goals, relaxing goals - lots of goals and well.. it's getting there!

I currently have an episode of Drop Dead Divas on pause that I can not wait to watch!  Has anyone else watched this show and enjoyed it??

I want to stick to all of the goals I mentioned above (and then some).

I need to keep my motivation going and keep in mind where I want to go.

All Star:
I can take this in so many directions but I'll keep it related to my profession.
Like so many of you - Every year that I take on a class I put 200% into everything that I do.  My class becomes like a little family.  People that I love to educate and watch grow so much.  I am a Special Education teacher.  And honestly, not everyone that teaches can be a Special Education Teacher.  I truly think it takes people with big hearts and that are accepting to make all the difference.

In case you all didn't know - I am on twitter too!  I would love to connect with you - find me here: Twitter Link


Full Speed Ahead! Plan Books, Organization, Galore!

Wow!!  It feels good to be back on my journey with my blog!!  Part of my reason for being MIA is that this entire 2015 year has been a complete WHIRLWIND and there is honestly no end in sight.  I've experienced some good and bad events in 2015.  But I think it's safe to say that many of them have been good.  I have so many upcoming and exciting events for the near future.  For one, my brother is getting married this July 31st.  There are so many things to yet prepare for his wedding.  It's such an exciting time for my family!!  

Now that summer is in full swing, (my last day of work was June 26th), I am finally beginning to go full speed ahead with planning my own wedding (I can't even believe I am saying that BTW)!.  Rich proposed in February of this year and we are all booked and set for our wedding next June 17th (I'm sure you will be getting some updates along the way).

This is an old photo - but I love it!  Here's me and my fiancĂ©, Rich!

Well friends, I am getting excited to start posting a couple of new resources in the next week or so!  I have a nice long, hefty to do list this summer!  While one part of my to do list means creating, creating, creating .. the other part means getting more organized, organized, organized.  I brought home tons of papers for filing from work - It is truly my goal to become a master at being organized with all of my binders.  This topic will be covered further in a future blog post about getting organized ... but for now, I will leave you with this quote:

Another thing on my to do list is updating those plan books in my store.  If you happen to have a planner from me, and you are anxiously awaiting updates, don't fret that will be here soon!!  Just in case you haven't seen my planners, here's a glimpse.

Black and White Paisley Planner

A few more planners will be debuted this summer as well. 

I can't wait to show you some more beautiful planners!
