I've Been Out of Town

I should have updated my blog on Sunday....but was getting ready to go to the MECA (Mississippi Educational Computing Association) conference. This is a yearly conference that I attend and bring back ideas on how to intergrate technology into my classroom.

MECA was a total blast this year! I have so many NEW students aren't going to believe all the things we are going to be doing in our classroom. The best part is all the software we will be using is FREE!!!! Who doesn't just love FREE!!!

Well, January is almost gone. February 1 will roll on in tomorrow and I will posting my DT work over at Making Memories For You. Come on over and take a look at mine and all the other DT's February work.

I hope everyone has had a fantastic week! Thank you for stopping by.....please leave a comment to let me know you were here!

Check out my Slide Show!

I Realized Last Night...

That I had not put any of my recent projects on my blog for all my friends and visitors to see. So I am trying to figure out HOW to add add a slideshow to my blog. It can't be that hard....right. Well, I must be challenged because so far everything I've tried....hasn't worked. But, I will prevail eventually. Until is a sample of what I've been doing lately.


When visiting my blog...please leave a comment to let me know that you stopped by.

WOW!! If You Are Looking For Some Fantastic.....

card kits.....I know just the place for you to go. The place I am talking about it Keep In Touch...this site is owned by Kelly McMaster and you couldn't find a nicer more helpful lady anywhere. I have already received and played with one of her kits....and let me tell you....It is fantastic. Check out her site and all the kits she has available. You will see for yourself. Check out this thread over at Making Memories For You and you will see some of the projects that I and others on the site have completed using one of Kelly's kits called 'Gettin' Jenni With It'.

All of us over at Making Memories For You would love to have you come join in on all the fun, chat and excitement.

Getting Back in the Groove!!

I would think being off work for 2 weeks is not nearly enough to get out of the groove of doing it....Well let me tell you, eventhough I was really ready to head back to school on January 7......the kiddos were NOT!!! So we have been working on getting geared up to work fast and furious to get ready for our state testing that is done in May.

I know, you think I'm rushing it....but May will be here before we know it and I want my 3rd graders and my 4th grade math students to be prepared for anything the state testing people want to throw their way.

On a lighter note....I can't wait for the MMFY Survivor game to begin on February 9. I am really looking forward to see how long I can last until my flame is put out!

Come on over to Making Memories For You and join in the fun.

I look forward to seeing you there!!!

Hope everyone's New Years is off to ....

a super start!

I have decided I would not make any new year's resolutions this year as I always end up breaking them, every one! So I did not decide to go on a diet...nor did I decide that I would exercise me!

What I did decide is that this year was going to be a much better year than 2007! In order to accomplish this, I would just have to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

I will finish my master's degree in the first summer session this year...and I am hanging up my educational is just getting to be too much for me.

I love teaching....but I have no desire to be an administrator...I am perfectly happy in the there is no need for me to continue to run myself ragged to get any higher degrees.

So there you have 2008 is going to be a spectacular one for me.....and I hope yours is just as spectacular for you!!!!
