Feeling the Teacher Blues :(

Hello there!

Today is my last day of school! Yesterday we said goodbye to our students and today is our day to organize and leave the classroom ready  (as much as possible) for the following year.

Yesterday was a bittersweet day! After being with my students  for almost a year, they had to go....hey! that was the plan, right?!

As I entered my classroom today, it was empty and quiet - very unusual for me! I will sure miss their laughter, their smiles, their uniquenesses, and just being with them. I just hope I get to run into each one of them at the store on a regular basis ;)

Each one of them grew in every way possible! They became wiser, aware of their amazing abilities, independent, willing to try new things, and caring for others - which makes me incredible proud!

I want to take this opportunity to THANK to each one of my students' parents, and relatives for the support and dedication throughout this school year. YOU made a difference in their lives. YOU are their first teacher, I was just here to guide them and support them.

I wish you the best and your future is bright!


Summer Bucket List 2015

Hello there!

What's the purpose of a bucket list? Do you create one? Honestly I haven't... until now. This bucket list has everything I am passionate about: my work, my family and enjoying life.

So, I have joined What the Teacher Wants to bring you my summer bucket list 2015! Click on the button below and join the fun!

First of all, I am extremely excited to be moving to a new school site. Well, it may not be so new to me. Almost four years ago I was placed in the classroom I will be teaching  as part of my grad school education internship. I always felt welcomed and respected by the teachers, and I am glad to go back where everything started!
I have tons of ideas for this upcoming school year (I haven't even finish this one yet ;) #teacherproblems. Well, I always do! 
Guided reading is something I want to implement in my new classroom. If you follow me on Pinterest you can definitely see all of my research pins about guided reading.

We just purchased a new home and will be moving in August. In the meantime, I plant to pack (ahead of time) and purge what we don't need to make room for new stuff....does that make sense?!
I also plan to do some research on colleges. I would like to take a few more courses I need to further my education.
Netflix, lots of Netflix!

I will be attending the TpT conference in Vegas this summer!
We will also be visiting parks amusements and water parks this summer. And just relax and spend time with my girlies!

Have a great summer!


Five for Friday {{6/12/2015}}

Happy-almost-summer-break Friday!

June has been super busy for PreK Partner! With graduations, promotions, end-of-year celebrations and making sure everything is squared-away to close this school year - we've been BUSY!

So, for this Doodle Bugs Teaching Five for Friday linky party......here I go!

This photo {selfie} was taken right after my daughter's middle school graduation. My dear friend Alma, is taking a selfie with her to celebrate the occasion! She has become family, and I appreciate all she has done for my girls!

This is just a random picture of us running errands around town.

Some of you are aware we just purchased a new home. And I am extremely excited to be having some office space.....just for me! 
There are sooo many options and ideas out there, it's very hard to decide. But I think I will chose something like a table desk to be able to cut and laminate freely! I know....#teacherproblems
Like the picture on the right side says....I'll be just moving the stuff from my dining room table to the office ;)

My kiddos are into knock, knock jokes lately....and those are hilarious, cute, and many others do not make any sense!
Here's one: knock, knock....who's there?
A frozen puppy.
A frozen puppy who?
A puppy slushie!

I've left the best for last! The children I took under my mother hen wing a year ago! I took care of them, cleaned their scrapped knees and tears, celebrated their victories, celebrated their uniquenesses, and truly enjoyed their company.
The good news are each one of them are ready for their next step in their lives.
The sad news is that I only have 12 more hours with them.

Keep learning!
