My first Contracted Days!

All I can say is TGIF! I have had one whirlwind of a week and will be excited for a little brain break this weekend. I officially began my contracted time with CCSD and I have had two jam-packed days of PD. I have one more day of PD tomorrow before I finally get some much needed time in my classroom this weekend.

I'm so excited to share what I have been up to this week with Doodle Bugs Five for Friday!

 I started off the week on a sad note. I had to drop my grandma off at the bus station because her visit was over :( I sure had a lot of fun while she was here though!

Wednesday was my first ever contracted day with CCSD. Our onboarding was held at the Venetian and they definitely went all out. They even opened up the day with a Marching band! 

The podium is up there between those two flags.

I wish there was a way for me to show you the enormity of this room! It amazes me that I was surrounded by 1200 other new teachers just for our district! 

That same morning my twinster and I were interviewed by a local news station. We had never been interviewed before, so that was a lot of fun! Shaunna is still mad that I volunteered us. and put it on Facebook. ;)

You can see our interview here!

I got my classroom keys this week and was so excited to finally be able to start working on my room! I made some progress! 

Then the next day I came back to this...

Some more fun from the week!

 My twin got the keys to her first grade classroom! We found puppets.

 We love Puppets!

My friend/co-worker Alicia wanted to take selfies at Onboarding. She had to twist my arm.

Okay, I'm off to a fun filled day of Springboard training. Whooooo! I hope your day is more exciting than I'm certain mine will be. ;)


  1. I love puppets too but have never really managed to use them consistently in the classroom - maybe this year! Glad to hear your first few days have been good!

  2. I had to look up your school district because I am simply amazed at all those new teachers!! Unbelievable!! 5th largest in the country! Congrats on the new job and good luck!

  3. Congratulations on your first teaching position! I'm so happy for you. This is my 17th year, and I still clearly remember what it felt like to finally have my own classroom and my own set of students. I'll be looking forward to reading more about your teaching journey. I plan to follow your blog as soon as I finish leaving this comment. Blessings!
