Currently October

Currently going insane????
I need to vent a bit - but I'll wait to the end of this post. 
Yesterday my son wasn't feeling well, so I took a sick day and stayed home with him, and actually he's not feeling bad today so we've had a great day together. We enjoyed singing to the ipod.  I just introduced him to the Backstreet Boys.
I really am going to try to update this blog more often
The problem is, I'm exhausted.
totally, and completely exhausted at the end of the day.
Well, I have been teaching for 20 years now, and this class is really testing my knowledge and patience with teaching.  
But enough of the complaining
I've decided to redirect my energy to this blog. 

Why not share with all of you about life in the Jungle?  That's what I secretly call my class this year.
I actually got a poster that says "welcome to our jungle" and put it up by my classroom door.
Everytime I pass it, I think to myself, "Yup!!  Jungle it is!!"


  1. I think "the jungle" is quite a cute and accurate name for most classrooms. It definitely works for mine! :)

  2. LOL, I am feeling the exact same way about my WILD BUNCH this year, but it's only my 6th year teaching! I am in awe of you veterans! Found you through Farley's rule of 3 (yes, it's almost November, and I just posted my Currently for Oct. lol)

    Teach On.
