Last week of school holidays and we’re taking a little road trip to try and chill out a bit before the craziness begins. My eldest starts high school and I am starting teaching with my very first class of year 4’s so right now I am equal parts excitement and panic attack. I have been on overload setting up my classroom and making resources all holidays to make my classroom warm, welcoming and an inspiring place to learn. This book is the essence of how and why I want to teach. Already I have a million different ideas on creative ways to deliver lessons that are truly engaging. I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the book on the drive home. #thewildcard#teachersofinstagram#year4teacher#audiobooks#creativeteaching#studentengagement#whatisyourwhy
I gave myself a raise.
So I had no idea that coaching would make me more than if I would have my masters right now. Seriously! Going off of my teaching salary bracket, I’ve jumped over multiple lanes (and then some) all because I set my excuses aside and decided to really focus on myself for a change. Now I’m paying that forward and helping other women do the same.
I earned two paychecks this week: one from teaching and one from coaching. My teaching paycheck only comes once a month but coaching paychecks come every week.
You guys, I’m not special. I’m not a ‘lucky’ one. There’s no secret to this business. Show up, hustle, and you are bound to see success. When I was a new coach, I didn’t really see the full potential. Now there’s no looking back!
Good news! You can do this too and I can show you how. Click the link in my bio, go to the ‘Team Lead With Love Coach Application’, and tell me a little bit more about you. 💕
Be the girl who decided to go for it. #TeamLeadWithLove

Anyone else have upper elementary kiddos who still struggle with analog clocks? 🙋🏻♀️ Whitney from @learningwithcrayons wrote a SONG to help her students learn time, and I love the idea of the post-it’s on the board! Can I just be a student in Whitney’s class already? 😍 Follow her for more incredible ideas! She is truly one of my favorites to follow.
A gorgeous, windy Saturday= work day. Partially. Just finished the blog for today. Ate a healthy lunch. Feeling a little accomplished. 😂 Teachers have lives. We have prayers, hopes, dreams, and plans. You may be embarking on a season of change or learning in the way you were last year. I encourage you to be content with either one. Enjoy the journey and be grateful you've had the opportunity to spend some of it with great kids. You may be Ms., Mrs., or Mr. in the classroom, but at the end of the day...you're still you. So take care of yourself.
Now time to get out and enjoy the day.
Stay in the Light.

After seeing a post from @teamboehm earlier this week, I decided to roadtrip to the @harnmuseumofart at @uflorida. What a moving exhibit that showcases our history, and unfortunately, parallels to our present. Taking Tuesdays class time to have some conversations with my students...lots to be discussed.
Building community in the classroom is vital for student success.
In a previous post, I talked about the meaning of these colorful buckets in my classroom. Usually, I place the notes that the students write each other in the buckets, but this year, I am giving them more responsibility and ownership. Now, they get to put their notes to other students in their respective buckets.
Some of you might be asking, do they just write notes to their best friends? In the beginning, yes. But as the first quarter progressed, the students started to feel like family and now I’m surprised who they choose to write to! It’s all about student choice and not forcing things down our students throats.
How do you build community in your classroom?

✨Happy #feetupfriday featuring my brand new first ever pair of platform sneakers from @keds!✨ Not going to lie this week has been one of those bone tired weeks and even so I’ve been thankful each day this week for my classroom and my students. Also keeping in mind my #utla friends who spent most of their week out in the rain fighting for their kids.
Definitely looking forward to this three day weekend to relax and reconnect with friends. This weekend Fred and I are headed to SF for the ice cream 🍦museum with my friend @ephraimicist and also to a wedding reception for one of my high school friends. What are your weekend plans? ✨

Happy Saturday, old sport! My friend Abby from @writeonwithmissg was one of the first teachers I followed on IG. Her enthusiasm for teaching and classroom humor shine through everything she does. I first noticed her shared passion for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, and from there I started learning tons of fun ideas for teaching ELA in unconventional ways. She dresses to match her classroom decor, so i suggest following her now to find out even more!
