It's that time! Back to school

I can't believe it's already back to school time!! Yesterday was my first day getting into my classroom and starting the set up process. School doesn't officially start back for another week and a half but today was the first day teachers could get in and begin working on their classrooms. As much as I look forward to summer break at the end of the school year, it never fails that come August I am champing at the bit to get in my classroom and start another school year. Last night I was reflecting on my first day working in my classroom. I was there ALL day moving furniture, going through the leftover belongings of the teacher before me, organizing or trying my best to get a vision of how I wanted the classroom to look. It was exhausting yet there is no where else I would have rather been. All I could think about was how excited I am to return and continue working today. This is only my third year teaching but it's also three years in a row that I have experienced the back to school excitement. I truly hope I never loose the joy and love of back to school time. 

Today I am thankful for the opportunity to have a career I love. I am a firm believer of the saying "if you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life." 

..and just for fun(:  This is oh so accurate... especially with the fact I am moving into a new house, starting a new school/moving into a new classroom and planning a wedding. 

Note: When summer "rest" has worn off and I am knee deep in paperwork, testing, trainings, etc someone please remind me of this post. (; 


  1. Love this post!! Especially the fine print at the bottom ;) I've gone in one day to set up my room, but I'm going back again today to organize and put away!!

  2. This is so true!! I wish I knew what the situation was for me in regards to room(s). I have two classes so I will probably have to share with someone but I don't get to go in until August 28th!

  3. I love reading about the back to school joy. Since I don't have a classroom as a school psychologist I have very little decorations. I only have one school this year so I'm hoping to step up the office decor a bit!
