back to school

It was a great week back to school. I love all my classes ( they are small groups of very respectful and delightful students).  I finally don't feel new- I guess the third year in teaching usually works that way. I have forgotten what it feels like to be confident in my teaching.  I hope this is a great semester!  We cleaned the art ed room all summer and now I am teaching in an organized and half empty room.  I am excited to fill it up again with beautiful creations. 

Here is Andrew ( my colleague) knee-deep or maybe even waste-deep in our classroom mess!

Happy back to school everybody!

Refinishing the floors- is as hard as it sounds!

Here are a few photos of our upstairs loft bedroom that we refinished in 7 grueling days!

That concludes the end of our home improvement plans for the summer! Jeremy starts his new job at Hoover Middle School on Thursday and I start next Monday!  It was a great summer and I am looking forward to an even better school year!  Happy back-to-school everybody!!!!
