December Currently (Oh my...is it December already??)

Well, here is my second time to join up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade, with her monthly Currently...December is upon us and I'm sure most of you are feeling the same way as me...so much to do at school and home, and so little time to do it all!  Well, if I make myself get dressed this morning, perhaps I can get some of those little things accomplished today!  Wish me luck!


Well, it's December, which I LOVE!!! but with this wonderful month comes so much extra work. I seem to be working month to month this year, hoping to get through one set of stressors, then realizing that the next month has a whole new set! Oh well, that's why I love this job...it's never boring! lol  However, when you work in a very small school and wear so many hats (classroom teacher, music teacher, technology mentor...), it makes it difficult when those hats keep pulling you in totally opposite directions. I am super excited to be attending the TIES conference in Minneapolis in another week, to get lots of ideas about using technology at our school...but why does it have to be the week before our Christmas concert??? Hopefully, I will spend the next several days getting my kids ready before I leave, learning all the words to those songs. I'm sure it will all work out..........

Have I told you that I work with a great bunch of people? We have such a variety of teachers, from newbies with lots if enthusiasm and ideas, to some more veteran teachers (with lots of enthusiasm and ideas!). I truly enjoy going to work to spend time with everyone. So - I am on the hunt for a few more things to sneak into mailboxes (from Secret Santa) to let these people know they are thought of.

I am looking forward to December in my classroom. We are finishing up with our latest writing project, as well as our novels, so it will be fun to do some Christmas writing, pulling out all my Christmas picture books, and creating some awesome Christmas crafts! I am looking forward to posting about some of our December activities over the next few weeks.

I hope your December is off to a great start!

Take care!
Tammy

Nice to meet another blogger who works in small school so has to wear many hats. It is very sweet of you to let your coworkers know they are appreciated!

I too feel that I need to put something special in my co-workers mailboxes this year. I'm thinking of heading to Pinterest to find something I can make myself. We're so happy that we found your blog!

Hi Tammy!! I love your energy and you are just as excited for Christmas as I am!!! :) I have to admit, I have been shop shop shopping already a lot!! And that really stinks when you have a conference or need to be out of the classroom for something when it is important that you are there.. my Christmas show is this Friday!! I love it, but I can't wait until it's over :P

That is a lot of hats! Wow!
I'm working on my director of technology certification. Have fun at the conference. Sorry that it's coming at a bad time.
I just posted a few Web 2.0 sites that I learned about in my last class. Check them out.
