Everybody's Working for the Weekend!!

It has definitely been another whirlwind week!! We have been so busy, and then I had homework of my own to complete and turn in, and yesterday I was under the weather (boo!). I feel so behind in blogland, but I guess that's how it goes sometimes!

Ok, I know I promised last week to answer some questions from being tagged, but I totally forgot about it! So here goes:

These are some of Jada's questions from Daisy Days for Learning:

1. What is your proudest teacher moment and why?  
When a student who had behavior issues drew a picture for me, and wrote that said "I love you, please help me to be good". His mom later told me that they were almost late for school, because he insisted on picking the perfect flower for me, and it took him 15 minutes!

2. How did you know that teaching was “it” for you?
After I made the decision to switch my major to education, it finally felt like I was home. It was such a comforting peace about my decision. Even now, as tired and exhausted as I am, I wouldn't change it for the world. 

3. What is the highest degree you have earned and do you plan on trying for something higher?
I have completed my Master's degree, and I am two classes away from completing my Ed.S.  I think I need to take a break after this one, I've been going to school since I was 5!!! 

These are some of Lou's questions from Pencils with Pizzazz:
1. What is one piece of advice you would give someone that wants to be teacher?
Know that you will work longer, harder, and for less pay than you deserve. Also, be careful of the company you keep, negative attitudes are catching! :-)

2. What is one piece of advice you were given that has stuck with you?
Love what you do, and when you don't love it anymore, find something else.

3. One teaching moment that really challenged you?
Pinpointing exactly what a student's deficit is. They are all individuals, and it's not a one size fits all type of intervention. However, I learn so much during the process!

Alright, one of my closest friends is getting married this evening, I'm so excited! Love must be in the air because my best friend is getting married next month, not to mention bridal showers, bridesmaid luncheons, and bachelorette parties!! Ah, well, I'm off to get ready!! 

I hope to feel better next week, so I plan to have awesome pics!

Talk to you later!
