Wow

 Well look what the cat dragged in...

So I took some time off from blogging because I just felt like I didn't have a whole lot to say. I love doing the link ups, the giveaways, but sometimes it just feels so redundant. Besides, who wants to read that over and over and over? Although, I am loving the blog hop "Let's be friends" {see the button at the bottom of this post to join}.

So this summer I picked up mya summer gig working summer school. I was blessed enough to go back to my former school and work with kids who were actually there when I was. I say I was blessed with this opportunity for a few reasons. The major thing for me was reconnecting with why I do what I do. I needed to see why I began this adventure 10 years ago!! I cannot believe that I am getting ready to start my 10 year in education. I will NEVER forget my first time in the classroom; I was absolutely petrified. However, this job that I "thought would be cool" has turned into a career. While at summer school, I reconnected with many former people and I do miss them. However, in the broader scheme of things - I reconnected with the kids. They reminded me that I do serve a purpose, help provide a drive, and a motivation to some of these kids (and teachers!). I want to help these kids realize that while school can definitely suck, it is such a necessity for their life. While I definitely am in favor of bringing in more technical programs for students, it is just important to get them to attend and actually do the work.  It was a nice reality switch for me. I feel rejuvenated and looking forward to the new year.

Speaking of the new year (or new school year) I think I am going to start a link up for Tuesday just for Teachers… stayed tuned! I think that it is going to be a great way for teachers to share some of the happenings in their classes because honestly—you can’t make some of this stuff up!



So to those who are still around, thanks for staying…but could you clean up the dust bunnies?

So while I was surfing around on my hiatus, I found this fabulous little link up. I have found some really great blogs out there by going through this link up so I encourage you to do so as well! Here's to being back!
