Happy Thanksgiving!!

I love this time of year!  The weather is getting cooler, and everywhere you go things are more festive!!  Pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks, butternut squash soup, chili, eggnog all those holiday foods.
Today I'm linking up with Lucky to be in First for a Thanksgiving linky. 

I'm thankful for friends and family, my health which allows me to stay active with swing dancing, yoga, hiking and running.

I'm thankful for a career I enjoy and that continues to challenge me and for students who make me excited about coming to work.  

I'm also thankful for the blogging community which given me opportunities to re-energize me and expand my knowledge about my career.  

I'm thankful for great friends and a boyfriend that love going out and enjoying life-hiking, yoga, dancing, festivals and exploring the city.

Last but not least I'm thankful for a five day weekend which will give me the opportunity rest, recharge and spend time with family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to the holiday season!!

Gobble Days!

Sorry for laying low this last month, but I've been feeling under the weather most of the month.  I had a pretty bad cough that took forever to improve!  It took three sick days and a round of antiobotics to clear up.  It's so nice to feel normal again and get back into my normal routines of hanging out with friends, hiking, doing yoga and going swing dancing.

In addition this year, has been pretty stressful with lots of changes with the way we teach thanks to common core, and for me a lot of large personalities behavior wise.  I've had to really learn, change and grow in the ways I manage the behaviors in my classroom.  What has worked in the past, isn't working as well this year.  

So after a short work week I'm looking forward to some time to myself and a chance to relax, recharge and spend time with family and friends.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you are able to spend time with your loved ones during this holiday season.

November Currently

It's finally November!  These last three months have dragged on it seems.  I have a few students who are really keeping me on my toes this year, in addition to dealing with a chest cold that just wants to keep holding on.  Along with a new month comes a new Currently from Farley and here is mine.
Listening:  I'm listening to the news tonight and trying to rest up.

Loving: The cooler weather!  So happy it's finally cooling down this month.  It's the kind of weather people come to Arizona for!

Wanting: To get back to my normal activities-having fun with friends, swing dancing and exercising!!

Needing: To get over this infernal cold.  I've had this stupid cough that's been dragging on for two weeks.  It's seemed like I was getting a little better, but I feel like I had a set back these last few days.  It's been stressful at work with those students which hasn't helped my ability to get better.  I took two days off and went to the doctor, made some progress and I've just plateaued.  I'm so busy at work, so it's been really hard to take time off. ; (

So come link up with Farley and tell us what your doing Currently!
