HIGH and low link up party!

We are linking up with Teacher to the Core for her HIGH and low's from the month of January! Everyday I try to find a positive and reflect and remember that -- I almost feel like you kind of have to because there is always so much that happens in a day!

My high of the month is that my students did SO WELL with a main idea/detail lesson that was observed for the new rigor/relevance framework. I was so proud of their excitement, being on task and just really "getting" the lesson. Did I mention this was in front of 9 other adults?! They ROCKED!

Okay...I just have to share one other quick high from this month. I had blogged about it earlier this week, but Girls on the Run training this past weekend was so inspiring and heart warming and it just makes me feel so happy inside to be able to be a positive person in their life. Check out Girls on the Run story here!

Now, on to the low. My low would have to be not having enough time in the day! There have been a few days this month that I went day by day with making my copies and things for the day (I am really trying to stay a week ahead this year!). My working out goal has really gone down the drain, too. I was doing so good those first few weeks, then life catches up and something falls behind, aka working out for me. I need to get myself back on the workout train. Choo-choo! (:

Here's to February!



  1. Yay! I see you did link up!! :O)

    Yay for main idea and details!! That can be tough.

    Don't even get me started on workout goals...blech. And copying day to day...yeah. That's me sometimes. I got ahead this past week, but it's easy to get behind again!!

  2. Hey girls! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I am now your newest follower! :)

    I know the feeling about workout goals. Seriously, horrible. :-P And having been out the last couple days, I'm so behind on copying and stuff, ugh! But I'll get back on track, just in time for February! :)

  4. Thanks so much for your comments! It makes me feel so much better about failing with working out!!

  5. That's amazing that your kiddos did so well with some many adults in the room. I think I would have been a nervous wreck with 9 adults watching me. I can talk to kiddos til the cows come home, but with adults I am rambling dork! :)
