Masters Memes
I don’t know who has missed who more… Me or Ryan? Making changes over here. I will still be in a masters program- just switching gears a little.

Today’s Hey Girl, long over due, is actually about my job as a classroom teacher more so than the Master’s Degree. We came up with really silly ways to celebrate success in our classrooms. One of them is making wow with your two hands making a W and your mouth in the middle as the O. It is ridiculous and my kids LOVE it- so does RG apparently.

So we have been back for 5 days and somehow this year is not going as smoothly as last. I am not sure if it is because we have spent a lot of time going over new procedures and practices being a PBS school or maybe the kids are being wilder but “Wong” or not ( I am referring to Harry Wong) I know a lot of teachers are saying the classroom management is taking more work this year.
 ** I would like to say that I would NEVER condone a real knuckle sandwich…… the picture just screamed the comment**

Last week before we head back for planning.. I have been trying to get back into running and thought I needed a RG meme to motivate me for my early morning run tomorrow.

Got in to my classroom early to start setting up as I am total OCD about where I put my posters and how they look in relation to the whiteboard, etc. I know- I need a life!

Summer is pretty much over as I work to finish assignments for my most recent class. I am also helping with the task forces at school and writing the school improvement plan.

Every class that has an overachiever ALSO has the student that uses that to their advantage. This is for them!

So I decided to take up the uke. NO, not because my boy RG plays it but because I thought it would easier than guitar and want to introduce it to my class next year by way of quirky songs about math and science. Anyway, I don’t start back to classes until next week so this weeks Masters Meme will be about my uke.

On a break from masters classes this week but I did attend a training at district concerning CCSS and Math. So, I decided that my heading to training during a tropical storm was pretty bad ass…
