Happy New Year!





It's the end of 2012, and what a year it has been.  So many things took place this year, good and bad.  I struggled last school year with not really teaching much.  The first half of the year was especially tough, but then I was so blessed to find teacher blogs (it will be my one year blogoversary in 3 days).  The teacher blogging world is such an amazing place, all of you helped me get back into a good place as I finished the year.  I also saw my mom struggle with and lose the battle to Alzheimer's.  That was a tough thing, but I'm just so thankful that she is no longer suffering.  I experienced being back full time in my classroom this year, and am loving that so much!  I felt so much sadness from the tragedy at Sandy Hook.  I also had the sad experience of seeing another friend who was only 29 pass away, leaving her parents and husband.  I was privileged to meet some amazing new friends from the blogging world, and from church and school.  So as a new year starts I hope to have more times to learn and make friends and keep old ones.  May all of you have a wonderful new year as well!  Happy New Year!

Aww, Misty, thank you so much for stopping by!! I really have missed keeping up with each of the teacher blogs! And I missed sharing about my year. It was a tough year to get through, not only because of mom, but also had a couple of very close friends pass. One was our official unofficial school mom...she had five kids, and I had the privilege of teaching them all. That was a tough blow for the entire school. I felt off this year. We finished yesterday, and I was very glad. The kids were OK, but were quite talkative and hard to motivate, even with some of the fun ideas I tried. Hoping things feel back to normal next year, and hope to be back to blogging more. Thanks so much again!! I'm going to head over to your new site now! Have a great day!
