It's Currently August

Can't believe it's August already and time to return to school.  It was a good summer, but boy did it ever fly by.  I'm excited for the start of a new school year.  Being a resource teacher, I usually start the year knowing most of my new kiddos that I will be working with.  They'll come and go throughout the year, as new ones transfer in and new kids are tested and qualify for special education.  I'm proud of myself for taking care of myself and continuing to work out and exercise throughout the summer.  The big challenge is to continue that trend and keep making fitness and health a priority for me so that I can have some balance in my life and not be such a workaholic.  Teachers returned to school on Wednesday and it was nice because our training was cancelled and that meant I had the entire day to work on my classroom.  So nice!!  We have our back to school meeting on Monday and then time to work on our classrooms in the afternoon.  Then kids return on Tuesday.  I'm excited about seeing my students!!

A new month means a new currently, so that being said I'm linking up with Farley this month for the monthly currently.

Listening- I love Pandora and the artist Zaz, who is along the lines of Edith Piaf and find the music very calming and relaxing

Loving-The start of a new school year.  It always feels like a fresh slate.  I'm relaxed and energized and excited about the prospects of a new school year. 

Thinking-About the new school year and all that needs to be done.  I have a long to do list, that's continually being checked off and having more added to it.

Wanting-I'm energized by the start of a new school year, but I'd love a little more time to get everything in order.

Needing-I was so good this summer about staying healthy and exercising despite the crazy Phoenix heat.  I need to continue with this trend and staying healthy even though the school year is in session and it's harder to find the time and motivation to exercise even though I know I'll feel better for it.

1st Day-Teachers have already returned (July 30th) and students return on Tuesday (August 5th)

Anyway, come link up and tell us what your doing currently.



  1. Came across your blog from Currently! Goodness, after reading your post I need to stop saying I wish I had more time. Cannot believe you are back to school already! I hope all goes well. I find that staying healthy & exercising is one of the hardest things after work, I always am so tired all I want to do is go home! Good luck to you on continuing & for the beginning of the school year!


  2. I agree with you about the start of a new year! It's a special time and always buzzing with anticipation. Hope your year goes very well!
    Teachers Are Terrific!
