Currently…behind

It’s that time again, that monthly reminder that time is just F.L.Y.I.N.G by. If you are like me and haven’t joined the fun click on over to Farley’s blog Oh’ Boy Fourth Grade.

ListeningHave you listened to this station? If not I highly recommend it. It is so good!

LovingI just cleaned my house and it always makes me feel so good!

ThinkingMy mom died 5 months ago yesterday. There are days that I am overwhelmed with sadness. I can’t believe that it has been 5 months and I haven’t talked to her. I still have her number on my speed dial and I stare at it wishing I could make that call.

WantingI am having some issues with the teachers at my new school. They seem to forget to respond to my emails, and to let me know when they are not sending their kids. I am always having to call for the kids or even to find them (sometimes they are in the computer lab, the library, PE, etc.) They also, as a grade level, eat lunch together in the classroom right next to mine, and they have yet to invite me. I am trying to be polite and visible and friendly but it is hard when it is not returned. Hopefully time will make it better.

Needing & hours and last dayOur school hours are 9:00 to 3:10. Our spring break is 4/9 to 5/5 and I am so looking forward to it. Our last day of school is July 25th. By July I am going to have to keep reminding myself of the long spring break we had because June and July are going to be very L O N G months!!

Happy April!

  1. Oh my, July! But a month off now is nice. I hope all turns out well with the other teachers. Just keep staying positive and it will work out.

    1. Thanks Sara. I am planning to give a "grand" gesture (a 1000 Grand candy bar and little note) before we go out on break, maybe that will help the situation :)
      Enjoy your week!

  2. Oh, those teachers are missing out! I've learned so much from your blog, I can't imagine all the things we could discuss in person. Hang in there!

  3. I am sorry for your loss. And as for the teachers next door...sounds like you don't want to be part of that click. They are in all schools. But I know how hard it can be to go to work and not have a support system. Keep your head up and maybe "invite yourself" in one time. I know when I first started working at a school I became good friends with someone who I thought was snotty, but I found out later she thought that of me! Because I was so shy, she took it as I was stuck up. Maybe put yourself out there. Good Luck!

    1. Hey Lindsay,
      Your right, I really don't want to be a part of the click. I do go out of may way and talk to them all the time, it would just be nice for it to be returned. Hopefully with time we will all get to know each other and things will all be good, but before then I am hoping my "grand" gesture will help. I am giving them a 1000 Grand candy bar with a little note before we go out on Spring break :)
      Enjoy your week!

  4. So sorry about your mom, Shawna. It must be so hard. And a month off in April but school through July is not something I've ever heard of before! Enjoy your long break!
