Currently March 2013

So, I'm a little late to this month's party, but I wanted to link up with Farley's Currently for March. I've learned about so many great teaching blogs from her site, so I wanted to make sure I participated again this month.

Listening: The Best Songs of The 90s on VH1. Ahhh, the good old days when music videos actually dominated music channels. I love how a good song can take you instantly back to a specific moment in time and you can relive the experience. The 90s were a great decade!

Loving: Lazy Sundays in bed. We've been watching TV, listening to music, playing on the computer, lesson planning, talking, and now blogging all day from our bed. I can't do this all the time, but sometimes, it feels SO good!

Thinking: About how much I want to be with my BFF right now. You may recall that she is pregnant with twins and due this month. I want, so badly, to be home with her so I can celebrate their births when they happen. It's killing me to be so far away for such a milestone in her life.

Wanting: A week of relaxation on a beach somewhere. I'm hoping we can make something work for spring break... at the end of April.

Needing: Testing season to be over!! When you work in a charter school, it seems the pressure is highest of all because it's on the chopping block each year, and we have to prove ourselves every step of the way. Our kids just took their THIRD round of practice testing (three days each) last week, and I know they're so overwhelmed by the pressure to do well on these tests. Unfortunately, the pressure is going to be around for another month until we're done with both phases of the assessments.

Like, Love, Hate: email (there are some things that just can't be said in a text), education (duh!), and endings (change is hard for me)


  1. Great post! I'm looking forward to some beach time, too. We are going to try very soon, as this year our spring break is the week of March 25th - before Easter! It may still be a little chilly in Virginia, but warmer than Upstate New York! ;-)

  3. I'm jealous about your lazy Sunday. Ours was more like CrAzY Sunday. ;)
