A New School Year

Here is my Tardis lunchbox I bought for this year. Even though most of the kids don't know what it is and have never seen Doctor Who, they all think my lunchbox is pretty cool!

I can't remember if I posted this before, but I am so happy to ba back at the same school this year (we typically get moved around a lot and I've already been here 2 years so I lucked out). And even better still is the fact that we have single gender classes! Yeeessss!!!

Sorry it has been so long between posts and that the posts have been few and far between. The problem with taking the summer off is there isn't much to talk about! Just been hanging out with the doggies and cleaning. And of course, having a job that requires confidentiality doesn't lead to lots of work-related posts either! I can say that I am still waiting to find out my assignment for this year (I would love to stay at the same place again this year, but my boss wants me at high school since I am Nationally Certified).
